VPN Problem with 2 network?
Posted on 2004-08-19
I have a network at home with its home PDS and one at the office with its own PDS. I have a adsl wireless router at home and all is working fine.
But when I connect via a vpn setup to connect to the office, I cannot have access to anything. The connection is established successfully, but it cannot access any of the pc's remotely or even our intranet.
Prior to having a ADSL Wireless router, I use to just have a Wireless Access Point, and the only way I could get my vpn to work to connect from home to the office was to disconnect my local connection to my LAN, then dial-up, and connect through the VPN.
I assume this is down to IP conflict or something similar i.e. 2 PDS? I'm not sure. I'm no networking expert, thus me being here in the first place.
Now that I'm using the Wireless ADSL Router, I cannot disconnect my local area network connection as it is needed to access the router in the first place, so what can I do. I'm sure there has to be a way to connect without having to disconnect, or all this messing about.
Any ideas or solutions would be greatly appreciated.
