    Looking for some advice on the following setup:
    OS: Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit
    VPN: (currently) Juniper Junos Pulse 4.0

    My goal is to have a local CentOS VM running on the machine. I cannot change the OS or the VPN client due to corporate standards. There is no issue with using a virtualization platform so long as it is licensed.

    --- Options ---
    VirtualPC works fine but only for Windows XP. It is less useful to me as I do want to virtualize CentOS
    I tried VirtualBox but that makes it so the Junos Pulese client will not connect. As soon as I uninstall, the VPN client works again.

    Any other idea? Maybe VMware? I do not mind paying for the license but I don't want to buy it then not be able to use it.

    TIA if anyone has input.

    How about running a Juniper client from the Linux vm.

    Buy VMware workstation and call it a day. I have used workstation to run centos 6.5 on top of win 7 before. You will cant to try the different network mode, I think that nat mode would more best with the vpn.

    Are you trying to connect to your VPN over wifi? Try a wired connection. If that works then your IT department has wireless network suppression enabled on your VPN profile and you'll have the same problem with VMware Workstation.

    It happens both using Wifi and wired. I may just try the VMware route.
