Monitoring the VPN Tunnel (Telecommuter Example)

Viewing the PC Client's Connection Monitor and Log Viewer

To view information on the progress and status of the VPN client connection, open the 54 Mbps ADSL Modem Wireless Router Model DG834G Log Viewer.

  1. To launch this function, click on the Windows Start button, then select Programs, then 54 Mbps ADSL Modem Wireless Router Model DG834G, then Log Viewer.

    Note: Use the active VPN tunnel information and pings to determine whether a failed connection is due to the VPN tunnel or some reason outside the VPN tunnel.
  2. The Connection Monitor screen is shown below:

    Figure B-25

While the connection is being established, the Connection Name field in this menu will show SA before the name of the connection. When the connection is successful, the SA will change to the yellow key symbol.

Note: While your PC is connected to a remote LAN through a VPN, you might not have normal Internet access. If this is the case, you will need to close the VPN connection in order to have normal Internet access.
