Case 7: Even if you have Allow Local LAN Access checked in
your Cisco VPN, your administrator can override the value and disable it on
Assuming your local lan is 192.168.1.0/24 (has IP addresses between
192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.254), and you have admin rights on your machine,
you can modify the routing table!
You need to do this EVERY TIME YOU CONNECT, as the Cisco client will inject
the routes upon each connection.
This simply deletes the "override" by removing the route map between your
local LAN range and the VPN Interface.
1. Connect to your Cisco VPN server
2. Go to Status > Statistics > Tunnel Details and Verify that Local LAN
Access is "Disabled" under the Transport heading. If it shows Enabled, then
you have another issue preventing your access which can't be solved here)
3. OPEN A COMMAND PROMPT AND TYPE "route delete 192.168.1.0" (without
quotes, where 192.168.1.0 is your local LAN)
4. Try to ping or connect to a local machine to verify success.
