Confilcte ip after connecting VPN

Hello,

I have problem after connecting to VPN I don't have ping to server, the problem is that I the IP I get from the router is: 192.168.1.x and the scope in the remote lan is the same 192.168.1.x ,when connecting to VPN there is no ping to the remote server, I think the ping is only internal.
If I take from ip that is not 192.168.1.x lets say 10.0.0.x, there is no problem to connect any server from VPN.

Any suggest how to fix it?

You will need to alter the range of one of your networks.

Since the VPN may not be under your control, it is easier to change your own router...

The are a whole host of private IP addresses you can use.

10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255
172.16.0.0 - 172.31.255.255
192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255

The only other alternative you could risk if the specific IP addresses of the office machines you are trying to reach are not going to conflict with your local net would be to have more specific routes applied over the VPN - e.g. 192.168.1.241 netmask 255.255.255.255. This would work until your local router handed that IP out to your machine or you needed to talk to a machine on your local network with that address.
