I have a user I'd like to test their VPN connection as if they were off-site to see some of their connection settings and drive mappings. When that user is on-site they are behind our firewall and unable to VPN in. Is there a way I can set something up so they can bypass our firewall and VPN in as if they were off-site?

I usually have to use  a cellular mobile card or find an unsecured wireless network in the area and use that.

dmwynne's solution of finding a physically different network is the most fool-proof way.  (Though cellular cards can sometimes have issues of their own connecting to VPNs--usually a settings problem.)

Depending on the kind of router/networking equipment you have you could setup a DMZ and/or a separate vLAN and assign separate firewall rules to it and allow VPN traffic from that "zone" through your firewall. -- Usually this involves connecting to computer to a physically different port in your network.  Which port would depend on your hardware/configuration.

We maintain a seperate DSL connection for this type of testing.
