I have a Vodafone Data Card (HUAWEI 3G Broadband) for my laptop and have been trying desperately to get a connection to a Cisco VPN.
My Toshiba laptop is running Windows XP (Fully updated), the VPN Client is Cisco 4.0.5 (C) and the Vodafone "Dashboard" Software is version 7.00.0015, the Windows XP firewall is turned off (and there is no other firewall on my machine). I am using the "mylan" APN to connect to Vodafone.
I can connect and authenticate to the VPN, an "ipconfig /all" reveals my IP addresses, DNS, etc... have all been set correctly by the VPN. So I can establish a connection and receive data back (when performing the VPN connection), but I can't connect to or ping any computers on my company's VPN!
Further investigation reveals that packets go out successfully but all the packets coming back through the VPN client are "BYPASSED".
I have tried logging in to the VPN on another laptop (via the Orange (UK) network) and my user login/password all work and I can connect to our computers successfully so it can't be a problem with my account on the VPN or the configuration of the VPN - or can it?
I have also tried using the "internet" APN to connect to my VPN but I get exactly the same problem.
What am I doing wrong? Has anyone ever made a successful connection to a Cisco VPN through Vodafone 3G in the UK?
Please help as I am getting very frustrated!
Thank you in advance.
