Yes. If you want to use a virtual adapter and assigned address with a 
gateway that doesn't support modecfg ( ike push/pull ), then you need to 
select a client virtual IP address that doesn't exist in the remote 
network. In other words, don't use a free address from the 
range, try using one from another 10 network like instead.

Hope this helps,
