Default VPN and Remote Desktop to connect to Windows server/network - 06-23-2010, 12:15 AM

A few people at work have Mac's and are always asking for loaner laptops when they go on out of town because they can't connect with their Mac. So now having a Hackintosh I figured I'd see how to connect.
I setup up the VPN, which by all indiciations appeared to be connected, but then in trying remote desktop to a server at work, it would not connect, either by name or IP.
Seems the Mac is trying to route requests to my local connection vs. the VPN.
The VPN is basic MS, and using MS Remote Desktop.
Any help or link to a How To: would be greatly appreciated.

I connect using a Cisco VPN Client and RDP to my network and Windows servers all the time, no problem. The only thing that comes to mind is: Is your Hackintosh on a different subnet than the network you're connecting to? As a simple example, if your local network is and the network you're connecting to is the same, the packets won't route, even though you're connected...
