Hi Arani

It seems a little strange because 137.221.74.153 is a public IP address. I expected it to have a class A (10......), class B (172.16-19.....) or class C (192.168....) private local address on it's LAN. I don't know if it's behind an ADSL (or other) router which does the appropriate port forwarding to the server IP address on the LAN. If the private address is 137.221.74.153, I doubt I can help further.

I know it's a well-recognised problem if connecting from say, a private address on the 192.168.1.0/24 network at one end of the VPN to another private address on the 192.168.1.0/24 network at the other end. That's why I was interested to know what the private IP addresses (and SNMs) were of the hosts at each end of the VPN.

Havent read the replies indepth, but probably your routing will change on the VPN-en server.

Depending on the VPN you are opening, it is probably an SSL-type of VPN where you get assigned a new address. When this happens, probably the default route will go over the VPN-ed address.

When you staticly assign a route towards your machine (client-remote desktop) you will keep connection because you have a /32 route added towards your routing table.
When you don't have this, the RDP session will be routed over the VPN resulting in a loss of connection.

Hi Chojin

Your reply sound so promising. First thing tomorrow morning I'll do is to add a static route to my PC, and then connect via remote desktop to check if I lose the connection on turning the VPN on.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Chojin

Tried the static route method. No joy, as I still lose the RDP session on turning the VPN on.

I tried some troubleshooting, by trying to ping into the 137.221.74.0 network after putting in the static route and turning the VPN on. No joy as I cannot ping at all.

Any leads?

Please check with Cisco VPN client setting as Allow Local LAN & check that check box. it will allow your Server to access all LAN based IP.
