I see that's the only forum where this topic is thoroughly discussed.
I have very similiar issue, and despite changing routing table and reinstalling Cisco VPN client - i still have issues with connection to my LAN.
my default gateway is: 18.104.22.168 (it allowes internet and access to office printers, etc)
gateway that VPN overrides is: 192.168.52.82
1. just in case I have reinstalled Cisco VPN Client (ver 5.0.07.0290) with option not to install stateful firewall:
msiexec.exe /i vpnclient_setup.msi DONTINSTALLFIREWALL=1
2. after connection - I have tried to mess around with routing tables many different ways.
A. I have obviously changed default gateway:
then I added routing for dedicated servers on the VPN side using:
route delete 0.0.0.0
route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 22.214.171.124
as a result: I could access dedicated servers at 139.53.213.* but I could not access anything in my LAN or Internet even though default gateway was set ok in routing tables.
route add 126.96.36.199 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.52.82
B. I have even flushed routing table just setting my original gateway with:
but it did not work either. (no ping to my gateway, no access to anything to my LAN)
route -f add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 188.8.131.52
I tried some more sensless options - neither of them worked: each time after esablishing connection to VPN: no access to my LAN.
is there any hope for me? anyone could please help?
PS. I did not play too much with routing before, so maybe I make some basic, obvious mistake?
