Leopard Host with Cisco VPN & XP Guest | Can't ping from host to guest

Hello,

I have a problem. I have XP guest running in OS X Leopard Fusion 1.1. When I connect my Cisco VPN to my companies network, it breaks the route between my host & guest. I can't ping to my host to guest anymore(guest to host ok). When I disconnect VPN everything is dandy again.

I tried adding a static route for my guest ip to use the right vmnet & it still doesn't work.

any thought?

Contact your VPN administrator if you want this changed. This is dicated by the VPN policy when you connect to the VPN. This is standard practice and good security measure, the Cisco VPN client enables a firewall to prevent other users from using your computer as a gateway to the secure side of the VPN. There is not much you can do to change this, perhaps you can use the Cisco VPN client for MacOS as a work around.
