VPN issue
At work I connect with ethernet and map drives to (2) computers and a "terra" station.  When I am at home, I [strong]was[/strong] able to VPN into these same devices.  Recently (after a possible company update) I am no longer able to connect to the terra station.  I still connect to the (2) computers, not terra.  One of these computers are connected to the same switch as the terra station.  Thinking It was something to due with my home router and/or modem, I used the customer wireless at work and VPN'd in.  Same issue, (2) computers, NO terra station.  Co-workers said they did not make any changes on their end.  Any Ideas, i'm stumped.  Probably something small, but I'm overlooking it.

Thanks, Cliff



Software/Hardware used:

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

So if i understand this correctly you have three mapped drives and one is not connected over the VPN….? What is the IP address of the terra station. Find that out first. I would drop to the command prompt at the office and ping the terra station noting the IP address. When you get home see if you can ping the terra station, that will determine the next step. Got to make sure you can connect to it before digging deeper at hardware being the problem.

Is the IP address of the terra station on a diff subnet then the other two computers?

    Thanks for the reply. I can Ping when I am connected ethernet, but not VPN'd in. This was all working a short while ago. No changes were made at work. Only possibility is the forced update or something I did by accident. The terra is on the same switch as another computer that I can connect to, so I believe it is in the same subnet.
