VPN gives two different types of IPs
Posted on 2012-03-16
I have two sites PDX and AST connected by a S2S VPN, Juniper at PDX and NetGear at AST. Both sites says the VPN connecttion is active. When I log into a PC on the AST network and ping a PC on the PDX LAN i get a response. When I do a tracert from the same two machines, I get two hops: 192.168.3.1 (AST gateway) and 192.168.4.1 (PDX Gateway).
When I ping from a PC on PDX LAN to a PC on the AST LAN, I get
reply from 126.96.36.199 (fictitious) destination host unreachable. When I do a tracert fom the same PDX LAN PC to the same AST LAN PC it GOES TO THE INTERNET (public IP addresses) at stops at 188.8.131.52.
Three questions (in order of importance)
What is the likely cause of this?
Why do I get Private IP addresses when I tracert from AST to PDX?
Why would the VPN say it is up at both ends and yet I am not able to ping internally from PDX to AST?
