    Hello

    We have a problem where certain pcs cannot be pinged through a VPN session.
    Please note that other pcs that are in the same DHCP scope can be pinged from
    a workstation connected to the VPN. I have tried to change the IP setting on
    the affected workstations to NetBios over TCP/IP, but that didn't work. The
    local windows firewall is disabled on all pcs (its set this way in group
    policy), so that isn't an issue. I have flushed the DNS tables on the
    "problem" pcs, but that didn't work either

    I am at a loss here....anyone have any thoughts? Something in the registry
    that needs to be changed?

    Thanks for your time

    Regards

    Greg
