When i try and run some Hyper V remote management tools over the VPN (wireless connection) I receive a "Access Denied: Unable to establish communication" error message. Is this an issue with my VPN? or something else

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

It sounds like your VPN is blocking the IP address or ports that are required for the Hyper V management tools. Check on your access lists to see if you have access to those ports.

    If your Hyper V Mgmt. tools are looking or wanting to go out to the internet, this is usually not allowed by most vpn's by default. I suggest openining your network connections and right clicking the vpn connection and see which gateway it is looking to use most will not allow you back out to the web, because they don't know what your default gateway is. Change the vpn to use the default gateway of the remote computer. This is the default behaviour for MS XP VPN connections, and again this is only if your software that is running on the vpn is looking to go out to the internet. I hope this helps you out.
