So I rely on a VPN connection to the Company's server in the U.S. Normally I can connect from my connection at the office, then just run the VPN and viola I am connected to the U.S. server.

About three weeks ago this stopped working. I can connect to my home network via VPN and the VPN again to the U.S. I can even connect on a VPN using my iPhone to tether. I cannot however, connect directly from my Melbourne office network.

I have upgraded router firmware and ensured ISP has not made any changes on their end. Anyone have a suggestion?

Call your company's IT helpdesk. There might be a change in configuration on their side. – Gregory A. Lussier Aug 2 '13 at 4:04
No changes in router config or rules. – bmize729 Aug 2 '13 at 5:12
As a band-aid solution I have created a rule in the router to deliver all traffic to the WAN IP. This seems to have worked for now. I am think that maybe https scanning is causing the connection to time out. – bmize729 Aug 2 '13 at 5:13
What error message are you seeing? – Fred Aug 2 '13 at 5:45
We managed to sort it out today. It took a little upgrade to the firmware of the router. – bmize729 Aug 7 '13 at 23:34
