Currently Being ModeratedJan 7, 2009 1:09 PM (in response to dvb)The very nature of VPN is to provide a secure connection between your computer and an office network. In order to enforce security, your vpn client will disable all other network connections.
So, basically, you're stuck. I run into this problem all the time (retrospect backups fail while users are connected to our remote site over vpn), so I feel your pain.XServe G5, many, many machines
Currently Being ModeratedJan 7, 2009 4:13 PM (in response to dvb)One thing to try:
Cisco VPNClient -> select your connection entry
Check [X] Allow Local LAN Access
This may or may not work to allow local LAN access.
The decision to allow or not allow access to anything except the VPN connection is specified by the VPN server. So your company's VPN admins are controlling your access outside of your Mac.MacBook/2GHz, PowerMac G5/2.5GHz, Mac mini/1.83Ghz, iPod Touch/32GB, Mac OS X (10.5.5), I also manage: 12" iBook G4/1GHz, MacBook Pro/2.2GHz, iMac G4/1.25GHz
Currently Being ModeratedJan 7, 2009 4:26 PM (in response to BobHarris)thanks for the suggestion. allowing the local LAN didn't help.
looks like company is being extra careful--which i respect. i was hoping there was a safe by-pass, but will work with this as-is.
