I'm wondering whether someone can tell me the mechanism by which traffic is routed to my office network via a VPN connection? Once I understand that I will hopefully be able to sort out the issues I have.
I have a works laptop connected to my home network. Configured to use dhcp, it gets a local IP assigned to it (192.168.0.x) We use Netscreen Remote to create the tunnel to the office LAN (192.168.1.0) Everything basically works fine, I just don't understand how.
ipconfig /all shows me just the one interface - My nic connected to the local lan. route print shows me the following:
Active Routes: Network Destination Netmask Gateway Interface Metric 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 192.168.0.1 192.168.0.9 20 127.0.0.1 255.0.0.0 127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1 1 192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.9 192.168.0.9 20 192.168.0.9 255.255.255.255 127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1 20 192.168.0.255 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.9 192.168.0.9 20 188.8.131.52 240.0.0.0 192.168.0.9 192.168.0.9 20 255.255.255.255 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.9 192.168.0.9 1
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1 Persistent Routes: None
I can ping 192.168.1.x and get a reply immediately. If I tracert to the same address I get 10 timeouts then a reply from the target address.
I just don't understand where the routing is being done...
Can anyone help please?
(P.S. Sorry about the layout - it says HTML table tags are supported but it doesn't look like they are)
