Using VPN on a Network to connect to a different Secured Network on Same Domain

We have two networks on the same domain. One being a secured Network for our Police officers.

I have a user that needs to use VPN Client to connect to the secured Network, but when she does, she looses access to applications and folders/files on the current network.

Anyone have any solutions to this and how we can remedy her issue?

Our normal procedures are to tell the user that they have to close outlook and any other applications prior to connecting to the other network via VPN. Once they are done with what they need to do on the VPN, they disconnect and can then reopen their other applications given ample time for their computers to reconnect to the current network.

However, this one person must be connected to both networks at all times as her duties requires pulling data from the secured network for our attorney's who are in court or with defendants. This is her primary job functions and she has 100s of records to pull daily.

What vpn concentrator are you using. W
e need split tunneling enabled for the specific user or disable option for routing all traffic over vpn for the specific user account. These settings are present on the vpn concentrator/router.

Cisco anyconnect ssl or the cisco ipsec vpn.

You need to check the remote access vpn config on the router/asa.

I believe its the ipsec vpn. And unfortunately i don't have access to the router.

Another option I thought of was VPC. Do you think that would work?

We have resolved this issue. We had to hard wire the person to both networks.

No one came up with an answer, and we had to come to a conclusion ourselves
