    I have a Cisco VPN server at work that I'd like to connect to, but cannot get Mac OSX 10.6 (currently running 10.6.4, but it has never worked with 10.6) to properly route to hosts. The built-in vpn client connects without error, and shows a proper routing table, but none of the hosts are reachable.

    Here is my routing table prior to connecting:

    Code:
    ($:~)- netstat -nr
    Routing tables
    
    Internet:
    Destination        Gateway            Flags        Refs      Use   Netif Expire
    default            192.168.1.1        UGSc          131        0     en1
    127                127.0.0.1          UCS             0        0     lo0
    127.0.0.1          127.0.0.1          UH              2     1042     lo0
    169.254            link#6             UCS             0        0     en1
    192.168.1          link#6             UCS             3        0     en1
    192.168.1.1        0:1c:10:27:c8:2d   UHLWI         133      501     en1   1198
    192.168.1.134      127.0.0.1          UHS             0        0     lo0
    192.168.1.255      ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff  UHLWbI          0        2     en1
    192.168.4          link#8             UC              1        0  vmnet8
    192.168.4.255      ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff  UHLWbI          0        2  vmnet8
    192.168.110        link#7             UC              1        0  vmnet1
    192.168.110.255    ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff  UHLWbI          0        2  vmnet1
    
    Then after connecting to the VPN:

    Code:
    
    ($:~)- netstat -nr
    Routing tables
    
    Internet:
    Destination        Gateway            Flags        Refs      Use   Netif Expire

    And the relevant part of ifconfig:

    Code:
    utun0: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1280
    inet 10.10.220.152 --> 10.10.220.152 netmask 0xffffffff 
    
    My personal machine at work is 10.10.20.181, which is fully reachable when I connect through Windows:

    Code:
    ($:~)- ssh ryan@10.10.20.181
    ssh: connect to host 10.10.20.181 port 22: Operation timed out
    
    Any ideas?

    My apologies for bumping an old thread, but did you ever get this resolved Purecharger?

    Running into this same exact problem on OS X Lion 10.7.2

    The actual problem? No - but in a roundabout way I did: I quit that job and work at a place that did their VPN config properly :)

    Good luck!

    How about increasing the priority of your VPN connection in System Preferences?

    It worked!

    Thanks! belvdr,

    I was able to reachable to the Intranet after I increased the priority of the VPN network.
