 Subject:  IPSec VPN Question
 Date:  Mon, 17 Oct 2005 18:09:13 -0500
Here is an interesting scenario for the list. I have a remote user that 
needs to connect to our home offices via IPSec VPN. We can get the 
tunnel working just fine and the endpoint lands in the LAN section of 
the network. Well, we have a DMZ segment that she also needs to have 
access to and with the current VPN settings, she is unable to connect to it.

Like so:

          Home PC (
Linksys VPN Router(
                |                \
                |V               \
                |P            Internet
                |N           /
                |            /     
          /            \
        /                \
LAN               DMZ
(    (
She routes perfectly to the LAN segment, but she is unable to route to 
the DMZ.  A tracert shows that the packet destined for my DMZ is routing 
itself out to the internet instead of down the VPN tunnel. I have added 
a static route to the linksys but it is still trying to route out to the 
internet. Any other ideas?
