How to get Cisco VPN Client to allow local lan access?

yatesit asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
We have several users that connect to our network using the Cisco VPN Client. We check the option to "Allow Local LAN Access" but when they are connected they cannot see the local LAN. If you look under Status\Statistics you see that the Local LAN is "Disabled" in spite of the fact that you have made the "Allow Local LAN Access" selection. Where the subnet is I can open a command prompt and type, route delete and the Local LAN is then accessible. This only lasts, though, until the user disconnects and then re-connects to the VPN- then we're back to square one. We need a permanent solution. Any ideas. Really stumped on this one.
