Cannot ping any device from the DC when a PPTP VPN connection is established.
Posted on 2013-06-30
This is interesting....I have a client where they currently cannot ping any device in the network if a VPN connection is established.
This all seemed to occur then I removed SEP from the DC as Network Threat Protection was preventing remote user from mapping drives to the file server, thou over night when I tried to connect to the file server to move files I noticed the mapped drive I had on the DC to the file server was not available, I tried to ping the file server and the default gateway but no good.
I disconnected my VPN session and I accessed the DC via logmein, ran a continuous ping test to the file server, then reconnected my VPN connection, this is where I notice the ping test stop responding, I then disconnected the VPN connection, the ping tests became successfully again..
I only found the below event in the log:
Event ID: 32009
Im thinking of reinstalling SEP but then I'll just be back to my original problem, thou the current situation is not a good one either.
If you require any logs\details attached please advise.
Please help! Thanks!!
