This may be the weirdest thing I have ever seen...

I am testing a VPN software client to connect to our VPN gateway device. This device does a form of NATing on the traffic coming in.

Last Night, I logged into the network where this NATing was turned on for the first time. I got logged into the network fine until the ZENWorks Application Explorer loaded and started running, then the mapped drives and the several of the servers local to the device mecame inaccessible.

Then I unloaded the NAL Explorer, a few minutes later, the drives and some of the servers were accessible. When I loaded it again, the drives and servers became inaccessible again.

Weird, huh?

Any ideas?
