VPN to use IP of office computer

I am working form home but need to access a website using the IP of my computer from work.  Is there a way to do this via a VPN?

I know remote access is an option and have logged in this way, but the site I need to access has video and it plays very choppy - the rest of the content is fine - but I need to review some of the videos.

Stereo mix should be set to resolve your audio issue. I am quoting the resolution for this issue proposed in another thread:

If you want to stick to TeamViewer, Stereo Mix should do the trick.
Right click the volume icon, Recording Devices, and then right click the list of devices. Make sure that disabled and disconnected devices are both ticked.
Then set Stereo Mix as your default device.

What that will do is send everything your speakers output directly back into your microphone input without having to use real speakers or microphones. So in theory, the audio should be perfect.

There is a way as long as the other side where the website resides accepts VPN connections or has VPN gateway setup.

Do you know, if you have a VPN Gateway/Server?

Thank you,

You will need to download the videos first then play them locally on your home computer. The problem you have is the internet bandwidth limitation in your home internet connection. That is why you get the choppy video.

Well if you have one of the recent broadband routers at home then chances that it can have VPN feature built in. You will be required to get a public IP from your ISP (you can also get  a free one from DynDNS) . Once you set up your router with the IP you can VPN to your home from anywhere.

I also heard of softwares like TeamView to connect to home but I am not sure whether it uses RDS or VPN.

I have VPN right now, but that does not seem to let me browse  as if I am at the office.

I heard that remote access is the issue as it has a delay built into how long it takes for the graphics to update - thus the choppy video.  My home speed should be more than adequate for the data so that does not appear to be the issue.

Your best and quickest option would be to use team viewer  go to www.teamviewer.com download the full version it is free (on boh machines the office and home)

Write down your partner ID and make password permenate when you get home launch teamviewer and plug in your partner iD and password and you should be good to go you can view video transfer data and more

 Hope this helps
Thank you

I tried teamviewer, however there does not appear to be support for the audio to play though? Am I missing a setting that would allow me to play the audio of the video that is playing on the work computer?
