You need to set up the VPN to handle it if possible. What kind of VPN software are you using ?

What VPN server/ router ?

Need details, since this is configuration dependent.

hardware Site to site VPN may be able to do this, software VPN, depends.


I hope this helps !

Why do you need both on the same subnet ?

Are you using RDP ?

Use the newest 6.1 client.

If you need to transfer files, use the local RDP resources for Local drives.


I hope this helps !
