Really strange. I am able to Remote Desktop over VPN to one of the servers (, but not to another ( The servers are on the same subnet.

The funny part is that if I remote desktop to the first server, then I can do second Remote Desktop from there to the other server (the one I cannot access directly -

So there is no credentials or login issue I guess. Just something prevents the Remote Desktop over VPN to one of the servers.

Any ideas what might be? I wonder if the number 27 in the 4th octet of an IP has some special designation which conflicts with the VPN.

What OS versions are the servers and your computer running? I've seen issues where some versions of remote desktop refuse to talk with others. – Ross Aiken Aug 23 '13 at 20:36

What is your network configuration? Are the two servers on the same subnet? If not is there a route setup in the VPN config to the server you are unable to RDP to?

Yes, the servers are on the same subnet. Just the last octets are different. VS. I wonder if the 27 octet has some special designation?! – mitaka Aug 23 '13 at 18:12

The only people who can help you in this issue are the network support of the place with the VPN. The servers might be on separate sub-nets and they'll help you set up your routing.
