I work from home and use my VPN client for work. I connected my MAGICJACK to the same computer and as expected, I can't connect through works VPN. Does anyone have an idea how to reroute the MAGICJACK so it won't try to use the VPN network?

What VPN client (Microsoft, other)? What protocol (PPTP, IPSEC, other)? Do you need to access resources on the VPN outside of the subnet in which your virtual IP is assigned? I see that you made your post through the VPN (or from work). Does your employer require you to do all web access through their proxy when connected to the VPN? Is the PC you are using issued by your employer and have contractual or technical restrictions that prevent you from altering the network configuration? Make and model of router, if any? Internet connection type (Cable, DSL, other)? If not cable, is your modem configured as a router?

1. Microsoft VPN
2. Unsure of protocal. How would I check?
3. For my day to day activities, I work with in the virtual IP network. I can access most websites outside of my work but I can't access the MAGICJACK server for communication.
4. My work has no restrictions on my website access within reason.
5. The computer assigened is mine to configure as I see fit.
6. Router is LINKSYS WRT54G.
7. Cable Modem

Personal note... if I log out of my VPN then the MAGICJACK works flawlessly.

Thanks for your help,

Erick

With VPN not up, Open Control Panel->Network Connections. Right-click the icon for the VPN, select Properties. Networking tab, double-click TCP/IP, click Advanced, uncheck Use default gateway on remote network, click OK until all is closed. Establish VPN connection; test that it is working. Test MJ. If it works, and you can also access all VPN resources, you're done. Otherwise, stop MJ, close the VPN connection, undo the above change. Go to Command Prompt. Type
Code:
ipconfig
and note the Default Gateway. On your Linksys, it's probably 192.168.1.1 . Bring VPN back up. Verify that VPN is working again. In the command prompt, type
Code:
route ADD 64.0.0.0 MASK 192.0.0.0 192.168.1.1 METRIC 1
Try to bring MJ up. If it all works, you should be able to give a -p switch to make the route persist across reboots. Type
Code:
route /?
for help.

If both of above fail, start over, bring VPN up, at a command prompt type
Code:
route print
post output. (Mask any personal info; I would expect the public IP of the VPN gateway to be the only such item, but look it over carefully before posting.)

WOW! I read about this problem after ordering MJ and thought it would be a big problem, but you have a good, workable answer here and mine is working now when VPN'd. Thanks.

not to be a nudge, but why do you want to use your MJ at work? Don't they give you a landline?

I telecommute. I use a VPN to connect to my employer. The VPN client routes all traffic through it. So, by knowing the IP addresses used by MJ, and using a "route add" to send them through my own local router/gateway, I can use my MJ at home (or the local wi-fi hotspot) while connected to my employer.

If I couldn't do this, I'd have to have a second computer turned on, running MJ. Or, all MJ traffic would try to go through my employer's network which only allows http through a proxy. Or, I'd have to use Skype of vbuzzer.com because they both support using http proxies to do VOIP.

I added this to the wiki FAQ, and created a how-to:

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/MagicJack/Support_Resources/FAQ#Can_MagicJack_be_used_while_connected_to_a_VPN.3F

I actually got the route idea from Steward back when this forum was on the MagicJack web site. Almost a year before I bought my MJ. I've been using static routes with a VPN for six months. No problems.

Hi,
does someone knows if there is a way to create and use a india vpn between IPFIRE and IOS devices (IPSEC, PPTP, L2TP)?
I found some German post, but it's very hard to read all them using google translate...
If it's possible, is there an How To or i used india vpn services ?
Thank you very much in advance
Francesco
