IP routing over VPN
Posted on 2006-05-26
A small problem that hopefully you can help with.
I work from a home network with an IP address range of 192.168.1.200-250 but a server on 192.168.1.1
I connect to a number of remote offices via a software VPN link to a hardware VPN router in the offices and am given an IP address of 192.168.1.199 for the VPN link.
All the offices have a server with an IP address of 192.168.1.1 the problem is when I try to remote desktop to the servers in the remote offices by IP address (192.168.1.1) I obviously can only connect to the server 192.168.1.1 on my local network. So my question is how can I connect to any of the remote servers. Unfortunately changing any of the IP addresses isn't an option.
I'm thinking along the lines of forcing my laptop to route any requests to the 192.168.1.1 address through the vpn connection when it is available?
Any ideas greatly received.
