    Ok... figure this one out.

    2 - BEFVP41 v2 Routers.

    I have a VPN tunnel connected and I can ping from the remote location to the internal address of the main location router and I can ping from the main location router to the inside network, but I cannot ping from the remote location to the internal network of the main location.

    There are no firewalls

    Any suggestions?

    Just to make sure I've got this right is your configuration:


    (Tunnel to Tunnel)



    (Remote user-to-Endpoint)

    If you're connected "tunnel-to-tunnel" both sides should be able to ping effectively. If you're connected "remote user-to-enpoint, the computer that hosts the shared resource the remote user is connecting to can "ride the remote connection backwards" to the remote users computer by opening windows explorer and mapping to a shared drive (i.e., \\\share) the remote machine has. Be sure that the remote machine has a username and password that has access to the shared directory. Once connected, you should be able to get a ping.

    Is this what you were referring to (pardon my long road to Rhode Island).

    The tunnel is the right one, however I am able to ping the inside of the router from both sides, yet unable to ping any internal address from the remote location on both sides.

    Are the default gateways all defined correctly on the PC's?
