We have a VPN that we connect to via Remote Desktop (address format xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxx).  When connected to the remote server we uses ms sql 2008 r2.  We wanted to know if we can use our local ms sql 2014 to connect to another sql instance via that same vpn.  What we have doen the following in our ms sql 2014:

Just the address,           xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
Address\InstanceName,       xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxx\InstanceName
Address\(local),            xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxx\(local)
Address-port,               xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxx   - (THIS IS HOW WE CONNECT TO VPN)
Address-port\InstanceName,  xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxx\InstanceName
Address-port\(local),       xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxx\(local)
