SAP GUI not responding over a VPN connection


Hello Experts,

I've been trying to access SAP from home via a VPN connection. I've Cisco VPN client running on my Windows XP SP3 system. I'm able to connect to the remote server and am able to ping the host. When I telnet the SAP server port 3200 or 3600, I get response.

I've SAP GUI version 7100.3.11.1042 patch level 11. I've changed the network settings to Low speed connection.

When I set it to high speed connection and try logging to SAP, i get splash screen with message "Trying to connect to server.. Please wait.." and then nothing happens.

When I switch to low speed connection, logon screen appears instantly and when I supply user ID and password, nothing happens and just hour glass appears.

If I make a second attempt to logon and provide same userID and password, then a popup screen appears with option for multiple logon and lists out earlier logon attempt. By choosing option to continue logon without terminating other session, nothing happens. I see hour glass on that session too.

I turned on the GUI trace and didn't find any error. Here is a sample section of trace file -
