I recently added a VPN to my office PC and I'm learning the ropes. I've learned to use route add x.x.x.x 192.168.0.1 to add special website/server connections to bypass the VPN.  And I've figured out that to access our remote servers at a colo, I need to use their public IP. A confusing situation is that I was expecting problems RDP'ing (Windows 7's Remote Desktop) to local PC's on our local network (BOT-PC that runs Scheduled Tasks and HOLD-PC that runs our phone system hold music). I can for some reason connect to the HOLD-PC (maybe I've forgotten having added a route but I don't know how to check that). When I attempt to connect to the BOT-PC I get what I was expecting:  "cannot connect". Where do we begin?
