Hello Experts,

I am connected to my work's network via VPN. Simultaneously, we are trying to connect to our lab via another VPN using VMware Server Ubuntu guest (not server). However, I can only have one VPN connection at one time.

The VMware Server2 machine is connected to VPN and guest machine can not connect to our lab VPN.

Is there way to have both connections up?

thx,

Is the host VPN Microsoft PPTP VPN? That may be why. I can connect up to multiple sites with IPSec VPN but not with Microsoft PPTP.  ... Thinkpads_User

You need to look at the remote end (probably a router) that you are connecting to. Open up the setup page for VPN and that should tell you. ... Thinkpads_User
