Trying to create a "simulated" external client to LAN VPN
Posted on 2004-11-16
Problem is that the "external" client is within our own LAN physically, plugged via a VPN router directly into our ADSL modem. We have allocated the client and the VPN router static IP's from our own external block of IP's we have purchased.
Problem is that the ADSL router also has an IP from the same block. Consequently as soon as packets are received by the aforementioned router from the client machine they are immediately seen as being on the same subnet and kept internal.
Is there anyway I can fool it into sending the packets externally to the internet?
Does the above problem explanation make sense?
