Im trying to conect to my office vpn through an exising Remote access VPN setup on a cisco ASA, windows xp and windows 7 clients connect ok.

When i setup the L2TP connection on my mac i connect, authenticate and i can even see the DNS servers assigned in the properties on the VPN conection as i should expect, but i cant access anything on the corporate network it seems that all the traffic is still being pumped out the WIFI interface (DHCP) cant ping names or IP's on the inside cant remote desktop ect (all this works perfectly from a windows client)

Any ideas?

Many thanks

When the Mac is connected, what do you get when you run 'ifconfig -all' and 'netstat -rn' from the Terminal window?

So you have two interfaces that are active; your ethernet AND your WiFi interface?

WHat if you disabled your WiFi interface do you now get access?

There is the option to "Send all traffic over VPN connection" - try it.
