I have two X220's with identical problems. Normal procedure for connecting to our terminal server (Windows 7 - server = v2008) is:
- connect to the internet
- connect to VPN (using Cisco VPN Client Version 5.0.07.0290)
- connect to terminal server
Everything works fine when connecting through WIFI - and everything works fine when connecting via the integrated broadband modem in the X220 until trying to connect to the terminal server. Then it says the Remote Desktop cannot find the computer XX.
I.e. everything works great until that step. This includes full working internet over 3G and succesfull connection to VPN.
Since I have two identical machines - this should rule out hardware errors. It must be software.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I could imagine some firewall settings related to the WAN.
But i am not the expert - i will ask my son tomorrow, he is a systemadministrator and knows these things!
Så hører du fra mig igen!

Just to be 100% sure.
Do we agree, that everything works correctly if you are using either ethernet or WiFi - also the RDP connection?
And ONLY with WAN the connection and VPN is working, but NOT RDP?

Henrik - you're perfectly correct.
I have found a fellow who had the same problem; however, none of the replies were helpful: LINK.
But it tells me that the problem may not have anything to do with the X220 machine...

2 questions from the expert:
1) Do you have rights to the VPN settings in the consentrator/ASA?
2) Are there any difference in the settings depending on the subnet you 'dail-in' from?

1. Yes. We have the server set up locally. But I'm not that skilled in setting such things up.
2. I have no idea. I see myself as quite skilled within IT, but as amateur not pro.

I had this problem too. In my case I was able to connect to cisco vpn but I was not able to ping any of the routers on the other side of the vpn, and hence not able to make a remote desktop connection. This was only for mobile broadband, wifi and LAN were unaffected.
Although I don't have the link to hand, there is something in the release notes for the cisco vpn client that refers to the issue with mobile broadband.
Can you create a standard dial up connection using the broadband modem, to create a data connection to your WWAN network? You normally have to dial a number like *99# with username and password blank. Then try and connect the cisco vpn. For me this works for a couple of minutes. I think that after this time the mobile broadband chip turns itself off because it doesn't realise that it's needed (some sort of aggressive power management feature). I'm still looking for a work around for that.
