My director and I have set up a SmoothWall firewall with SmoothTunnel VPN in our office. We have created L2TP road warrior connections for our Win XP clients at home and we can both successfully connect via our individual VPN tunnels. However, whereas I can ping the decimal addresses of the internal firewall NIC and the main server NIC in the office, my director cannot. It seems like a gateway issue - but we aren't sure where to start looking. We both have ADSL broadband at home. Any pointers, please ?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

IS your director using a router/firewall ?
I know i had issues using a Netgear router and VPN but was easily fixed.

    What IP address are you handing out when you connect to the VPN? Do you have a route back to these addresses?
