I am having a very strange issues. When I configure a VPN connection on one of my VM's, it connects fine. However when I try and transfer data via that VPN connection not only does the VM Lose network connectivity but the Host does as well. When my computer is in a disconnected state I can no longer ping the gateway or any other devices on my network. I can however ping the VMs Running that are on the same network as the host computer.
I have configured OpenVPN on a windows XP VM. - It connects it's fine, but transfer any data through the VPN (Via the internet) and both my host computer and VM both lose Netowrk
Windows 2008R2 Standard VM with Hamahich VPN - Same results with the exception I am transfering via the LAN opposed to via the internet.
Host OS: Windows 7 Ulitmate 64 Bit
Nic Marvell Yukon 88e8056 PCI-E Driver 126.96.36.199
One more piece of information is that I do have the hamachi VPN clinet (www.logmein.com
) loaded on my Host PC and it transfers data just fine to remote clients with no issues
What I have tried to do to resove this.
Disable my Host OS Firewall
Upgrade my Nic Driver to the latest version I could find
Upgraded VMWare Workstation from 7 to 8 (Yes the problem existed in workstation 7)
To resolve the issue and get my computer back on line, I have to either reboot or right click on my Nic on the HOST and disable it then enable it again...
