PPTP VPN and routing
Posted on 2012-03-15
I have a dial up VPN setup using RRAS on a Server 2008 machine. I have no problem connecting and getting an on the local network.
My problem is that we have a separate subnet in our environment which users can't seem to get to through the VPN.
Primary subnet: 10.10.10.0/24
Second subnet: 10.10.20.0/24
If I connect using a WinXP machine, I can ping any address on the primary but not the secondary.
If I connect using a Win7 machine, I can ping any address on the primary and the secondary.
Funny thing is that occassionally, the WinXP machine will get a ping response back from a device on the 10.10.20.0 network.
Am I missing something in the XP configuration? I've dupliated the setup on the XP machine exactly the same as the Win 7. The option for "Use default gateway on remote network" is disabled" as internet performance is brutally slow if we enable this option.
If I enable the "Use default gateway on remote network" on the XP machine, I do get ping responses back from both subnets but we are trying to find a way to avoid this.
