    Hi,

    I have a Fedora 7 guest OS on Parallels Desktop for Mac OSX. Within OSX I'm using a Cisco VPN client to connect to my corporate VPN. The VPN within OSX works fine.

    However - inside the Linux OS I cannot access servers on the VPN. A typical problem you might think. Here's the weird part...

    Within Linux:
    * DNS resolution for servers inside the VPN works fine
    * I can connect to webservers inside the VPN. I get the title of the webpage, but then nothing else
    * If I try to download files using wget, it connects but then just hangs, like nothing is being sent
    * I cannot connect to servers inside the VPN using ssh

    Has anyone come across this sort of partial VPN access before?

    Oh, I'm using shared networking BTW.

    Many thanks,

    kevin
