1. Click on APPLE > System Preferences
2. Network
3. ADD a new network connection
4. Choose VPN as the type
5. Choose the VPN type (get this from the network administrator)
6. Save the Connection

In the settings:

server address = remote IP address for the VPN entry point (get this from the network administrator)
account name = username (windows will require: username@domain or domain\username) - Confirm the exact format enforced by the network admin)
encryption - (get this from the network administrator)

Save & Connect :)

Resolved by having the home user change his router NAT from 192.168.1.1 to a diff network from office which is 192.168.1.1. Home user's NAT is now 192.168.2.1 and can connect fine now
