Loosing access to Windows VM through RDP/Bastion soon after connecting to a Client VPN using Cisco-VPN-Client

Hello Team,

I'm trying to use a Windows VM deployed through AVD to connect to a client VPN. And client's VPN is restricted in a way that it only allows users to access few of their internal servers but nothing else. So, I'm loosing access to VM soon after connecting to the Client VPN using Cisco-Mobile-VPN client. And it looks like VPN is restricting external connectivity to the VM. As a new user to Azure, I'm trying know if there is a possible work around to access the VM even after connecting to client restricted VPN. Any help is much appreciated.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your question.

    If you are not able access only after connecting to VPN. then they need to whitelist your VM ip or DNS name.
