vpn tunnel, gui fails load balancing connection

We recently did 2 things. Upgraded the SAP servers to 2000 AND our corporate network upgraded to 2003 Active Directory. Previously vpn clients could connect across teh web to the corporate network and fire off the 46D gui and connect to any SAP server. Now, only our NON-load balancing servers can be connected to. Anytime attempts are made to use the GUI to connect to the load balancing system the clien times out with load balancing error 88.

Nothing has change in firewall configuration AT ALL. All appropriate ports are open and no dropped / denied packets / connections noted.

Any ideas would be oh so very helpful

Thanks in advance

    More info....

    Can ping the server by name

    Can ping the physical IP

    Server sets on same subnet as Corp location the VPN is connected to.

    Connections direct to IP of one of the APP servers works perfect, but not if you let load balancing work.

    Is your VPN on a seperate network? If so you will need to define the "front-end" VPN network address within your logon group in SMLG (Atributes tab -> IP address).

    Ideally you should create a seperate logon group for your VPN access if this is the issue, as changing the IP address within your logon group would prevent users on your local network from now access SAP via load balancing.
