ping and VPN

2 posts in this topic

I originally posted a question regarding this in Sept06

Original post

Valik moved it to support - but it is definitely not a support issue.

It is not really a bug either - because on a LAN ping() works fine.

MS ping can ping clients over VPN - but AutoIT Ping cannot()

If I do "ipconfig" I get the following

Ethernet adapter Wireless Network Connection 2:

        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . :
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.11.9
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.11.1

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

        Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Media disconnected

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 2:

        Connection-specific DNS Suffix  . : xxxxxxx.net
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.213.32.15
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 10.213.32.15

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 2: (10.213.32.15) is a virtual adapter setup by the VPN software (Cisco Systems VPN client)

While the VPN link is running I cannot see the 192.168.. network (this is expected behaviour)- - I wonder if AutoIt ping() is looking at 192.168.. network rather than the 10.213.... As I have already said - MS ping can ping a client over VPN.

I know this looks like an old topic, but it still appears to be an issue.

Have any of the devs got any thoughts on this.

Thanks for you help.

Ping() responds as expected for me over VPN connections.

Absent test code / screen shots (i.e., results of a wrapped PING command vs. the au3 Ping() function ), you're unlikely to get any traction.

Of course, your comments have indicated that you have a workaround available, write a wrapper around the windows ping program, and you'll be up and running.


Reading the help file before you post... Not only will it make you look smarter, it will make you smarter.
