I have been accessing my work VPN over my home firewalled wireless connection (WindowsXP) for over a year now on my Dell laptop. Suddenly, I am able to log on to the VPN, and it shows me connected, but I cannot connect to my mail or the databases. I have not intentionally changed any settings. Could this be a result of a security or windows update? Thanks for your help!

If you can connect to the VPN, it's probably an issue on the other end at your work. Can you access anything when you log in?

Windows SP3 had issues with VPN connectivity. There is info on the Microsoft knowledge base on this.
