    Hi,

    I'm having a problem with PDANet disconnecting whenever I try to establish a VPN connection. PDAnet runs smoothly and fine when I do normal internet surfing, but when I log onto our Corporate VPN, about 20 seconds after the connection has been established, my Treo gets disconnected from ActiveSync, which then shuts down PDAnet, so I am not connected. Has anyone else had this problem? Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do to fix this?

    Also, what is RNDIS? I have the option of not connecting through that. What does it do?

    Thanks

    We use NetScreen and I have no problems.

    Are you BT connected or USB connected when this happens? I know that many people have issues when putting a largw demand on pdanet while BT connected.

    I'm using USB. I get the BT dropout when i'm at home on my Ibook, but haven't had any dropout problems tethered to my work PC, until I login to our VPN. We use Cisco VPN, so I just go to vpn.companyname.com and login.

    PdaNet freezes probably due to additional bandwidth overhead from VPN. I encountered the same issue when I connected to VPN or downloading a huge file using PdaNet. See my related solution/posting at http://mytreo.net/forum/index.php/topic,44882.0.html

    Some VPN software locks down your network access to strickly a direct ethernet connection or wifi. My company's VPN sw was written by Cisco and I know it works that way.

    It has been a long time since I resolved this same issue, but I remember disabling my software firewall cleared up the problem. If you have a software firewall, disable it, and let us know if it works.

    I couldn't find HKLM/System/Services. I got into System, but didn't see a services file or location. Any idea where it could be?
