Unable to connect to Mac build host from Windows when in VPN

SturlaSturla USUniversity ✭✭


This might be a problem that I would need to ask at the forums for Oracle VM but somebody here might have had this problem.

My setup is Macbook pro with Windows 10 running my xamarin build host on a VM Mac (in Oracle VM). Everything works just fine and dandy... until I connect to my companies VPN (with Cisco AnyConnect).

Then I can´t connect.

The error I get is "Unable to ping remote host. Ping reply status returned is TimedOut"

I have made sure that no firewalls are running locally on either instance and tried to mess with all the networking settings in Oracle VM with no success.

So how is the VPN messing this up? Any idea?

    Best guess is when you are on the VPN your dns server changes so you dont have access to that build host anymore.
