I am currently running Mac OS X Snow Leopard and trying to use the native vpn client to connect to our Microsoft vpn server. If I route all traffic via the vpn connection I am able to connect to our servers, however, external traffic to i.e. google or stack overflow is blocked. If I uncheck the checkbox to route all traffic via the vpn I can connect to the vpn, however, I can not connect to my servers, external traffic to google or stackoverflow works though.
Is this a VPNclient issue, do I need to purchase Mac OS X VPN software instead of the native client, or is there a Microsoft vpn server setting that has to be checked. I am not familiar with the server software, but I wanted to post this question here to help out our network admin with the Mac OS X machines.
While I have not 100% ruled out the OS X VPN client, I have determined my router is definitely part of the issue. I have a Linksys wrt54g 1st gen, which worked perfectly for awhile, now I am guessing it has fried, because with it tied to my home network it prevents me from connected to my VPN. if i disconnect it and go directly through comcast, or any of my local coffee shops, everything works fine. once i replace the router to confirm, I was going to update this issue.
