Hi

Just wondering if theres a VPN expert out there.. I have joined a VPN service
 and setting it up and although web browsing works and other things just not ping
theweird thing they offer several servers and its just one server that ping fails one
but it uses 192.168 range and the other that works uses 10.0.0.x range
so wondering if its a routing issue under windows XP? i heard windows routing is the worse
over unix etc Ive turned of firewallls in case no different. considering one server works
 and other doesnt fully I kinda think its not that anyhow

I paste some results from dos prompt commandlines to see if can help

I can ping lan ok.. ping 192.168.1.99 and 192.168.1.9 etc

also as you see I can ping the WEB before I connect VPN PPP or PPTP

well except geekzone that gives a error but tvnz.xo.nz is fine LOL

I played with persistent routes ROUTE ADD -p but not sure if done it right but it didnt help either


DNS also goes to 127.0.0.1 dns caching proxy but I added that later it wasnt pinging
 before that either..

since web works but  not ping surely its icmp packets routing issue?

Cheers

If web browsing works then it isn't routing.

Have you tried asking the VPN provider? Perhaps they simply aren't passing ICMP (or NATing it correctly) on their VPN gateway.
