Cannot access resources after
establishing the VPN because of the same IP
Situation: The client
setup VPN on his XP Pro ad he can establish the VPN, but he can't ping the
VPN host by IP.
Troubleshooting: 1. The
ipconfig /all shows the both VPN host and VPN client are using the same IP
2. The VPN host setup to "Assign TCP/IP addresses
automatically using DHCP".
3. The DHCP is Netgear RO318 router.
Analysis and resolution: in most cases, the XP can not
be Netgear DHCP relay to assign IP to the VPN client. Therefore, both VPN
server and client use the same IP address. To solve this issue, setup
Incoming TCP/IP Properties to "Specify the TCP/IP addresses: or "Allow
calling computer to specify its own IP address". If you select "Allow
calling computer to specify its own IP address", you need to assign IP
on the VPN client and make sure the IP is in the same subnet as the host.
