I wrote a related question earlier, which is still unresolved. This question is much more specific.
So I installed Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client on Snow Leopard. I connect to my work VPN. Once connected, I can't ping my work machine. I don't see any computers on the network. If the client were not running, I wouldn't believe myself to be connected to the VPN.
Is there something that I am doing wrong? Do I have to route my network traffic through the tunnel manually? (
ifconfig route comes to mind) Is the POST request that I am about to submit going to go through the tunnel created by my VPN?
I guess the main question is: why do I feel so in the dark? Cisco says I am connected to my VPN, but for all I know it is invisible.
N.B. I do have the up-to-date Cisco VPN Client: version 2.3.2016. I installed it about a week ago.
