Hi Kevin

I am not able to find any policy on the VPN stopping this traffic. In
fact its just not this, I am not able to connect to any port / service
on windows machines. It somehow looks like all the windows machines
are dropping the ipsec packets arriving from a different subnet. The
windows machines are on a domain in the office network. Does that
matter?  Would there be any policies that stop the individual
