Subnet wierdness

by

Had an issue with a machine not able to connect through to a different subnet even though all other machines could.

I had a look at the Subnet setting on the machine and it was set to 255.0.0.0 – this should be fine I thought as it gives a wider range for the machine to connect to.

What I forogt was the the subnets are connected via an IPSEC tunnel between the two routers. This meant that i had to force the machine to use the router to get through to the other network rather than go directly. 

It was such an interesting issue that I thought I should note it down.
