Telnet over VPN uses local IP address?
Hi guys, hoping someone might have a flash of inspiration on this one.
Today I had cause to telnet onto a remote server to run some smtp tests. I established a vpn as normal, opened the telnet session and found I was connected via my own ADSL IP address. This caused issues when I attempted to send smtp commands which where then interpreted as spam.
I then forced the vpn to use the remote gateway rather than local for internet access and reconnected. Same result.
Opened a browser and checked the IP address which then returned the IP of the remote gateway - as expected.
Scratching my head a bit. Is it normal behaviour for a telnet client over a VPN to report the local IP address or is it a function of the OSI layer that the vpn is on compared to telnet?
