Hi all,

I'm having difficulties with successfully running VPN connections on my Macbook pro, connecting to server 2003.
I've read through loads of posts on the topic but none seem to cover the issues that I'm having.

Essentially, I can create my VPN connection. I can see it from both sides etc, so the authentication side of things seems to be fine. To confirm, I have also selected 'Send all Traffic over VPN Connection' and have the VPN at the top of my connections list - ahead of my Airport etc.

I am looking to connect to various computers / services on the LAN of the network to which I am VPN'ing, accessing them through internal IP addresses, over the VPN, but all attempts just time out. All pings fail across these addresses also.

I think this must be an issue relating to my mac, as I can connect from a Vista setup in the same way and then have full access.

If anyone had any further pointers, ideas etc, I would really appreciate it.

Kind regards,

Paul Taylor

Hi, just wondering if anyone had any thoughts about this, I'm still stuck in the same place unfortunately?

See below for my routing table (from netstat -nr) when the VPN is connected. If anyone would mind having a quick glance, I am beginning to suspect the problem may lie here:

Routing tables (IP 6 ignored)

Destination Gateway Flags Refs Use Netif Expire
default UGSc 2 0 ppp0
default UGScI 1 0 en1 UGHS 2 125 en1
127 UCS 0 0 lo0 UH 2 11103 lo0
169.254 link#5 UCS 0 0 en1
192.168.1 link#5 UCS 4 0 en1 link#5 UHRLWI 0 19 en1 UHS 0 0 lo0 0:1e:e5:e0:b0:c1 UHLWI 0 9058 en1 874 UH 12 113 ppp0 0:1f:9f:a8:a2:5f UHLWI 3 0 en1 1195 link#5 UHLWbI 1 782 en1

To clarify, IP ...90 is ping-able, strangely enough ...92 is not, despite that being the IP local address of the VPN connection, i.e. localhost!

Any help with this would be really appreciated!!
