I have setup an experimental site to site IPSEC router based VPN between my work and home networks by following the guides that I had at the time. As instructed the VPN operates over two different subnets 192.168.0.X and 192.168.1.X with it I can authenticate (Logon) to the work network and if I point by DNS to the work servers I can retrieve my email via Outlook. So it seems like I have extended the work domain to my home, which is not bad.
However as the two are on different subnets I cannot browse the other network directory's, map directory's and as a result I would have problems running many applications? Is this correct or is there a simple fix to this short cumming? Simply changing a single home IP on one computer to a static address on the other work network did not work, 50% packet loss?
