Hi All,

I am trying to connect to a windows 2000 VPN server at work, with my current settings in DOES connect to the VPN and i can ping the domain server which is 10.1.1.2 but the first issue is i cannot ping the other computers on the network(via hostnames) can't remember the ip address of the other machines . second issue is when the connection is established and i RDP into 10.1.1.2 ok great i am connected to the server but any interaction in the RDP session even moving the mouse on the screen kills the session and the VPN connection fails.

Running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64Bit

Image of current settings in network manager:
