I have a home network, using a Netgear RT314 router.
On one of the PCs on this network, I occasionally run the Cisco VPN
Client, for example, so that I can access email from the company that
I work for.
But, whenever I have the VPN Client connection running, I cannot get
to the POP or news server that my normal (Cable) ISP uses. The mail
situation is not so bad, because the ISP has a webmail interface, but
I'd really like to be able to get to the news server while the VPN
client is up
I notice that when the VPN client is running, it creates a 2nd
"virtual" interface, and I'm wondering if maybe the problem is that
when the VPN client is running, all my outgoing traffic is being
routed through that interface (to the company), and then the news
server is not allowing the connection because it appears to be not
coming from the cable company's network?
Is there anyway to configure things so that I can access the news
server while the VPN client is up? Maybe by doing something with the
routing table on my PC?
I am running Win2K Pro.
Thanks in advance!!
