Here's my problem, I am running 64-bit versions of Windows on a couple of computers, one computer has XP Professional 64-bit, another has Vista 64, and another Windows Server 2003 64-bit edition.

Unfortunately, Cisco has not released a 64-bit VPN client (but Kerio has Very Happy). What I was thinking about doing is running the VPN Client on the same machine that is running Kerio WinRoute (which is running on XP 32 bit) and then create a rule that will allow the LAN computers to communicate to the Cisco VPN network.

I gave this a try, but once I connected to the Cisco VPN, I wasn't able to access the Internet through any computer.

Is my idea possible? I would like to know before I spend more time trying to get my idea to work. If it does work, then I will be very happy to know that I will be able to connect to my office networks.

I got it to work!!! However, not quite perfectly.

On my Kerio WinRoute Firewall computer, it's running Windows XP 32-bit. I also have it connected to a VPN connection using Cisco's VPN client.

I have a couple of computers that can not run the Cisco VPN client because Cisco doesn't have a 64-bit client.

So what I did, is created a rule in WinRoute that allows it to work:

Source: LAN, and All VPN Clients (so that I can VPN into the WinRoute computer with my Vista-64 laptop, which in turn VPNs into the Cisco VPN. A bit cumbersome and could slow things down a bit, but it works).

Destination: Cisco VPN network adapter (actually a virtual network adapter installed by the VPN Client software)

Service: Any

Action: Allow

Translation: Translate to IP address of interface: Cisco VPN


The only problem I'm having is that I can not lookup the IP addresses of the remote VPN computers from my LAN computers, however, the Firewall can find the IP addresses. However, I was able to get around this by creating entries in my hosts file.
