VPN problems

Hi there

We have a client who has an old SBS server, the DHCP scope on the site is 192.168.0.1/24

The problem is when a home user with the same scope at their home VPNs in.

The VPN connection is stable, but when they try to go to a network share they encounter issue where they cant ping or open the share. To me its because their machine cant see beyond their own network. Without changing their own home IP range/scope, is there a way to get round this?

Thanks

There isn't I'm afraid.  As you say,  the same network exists on both sides of the connection.  How is the router to work out where to route packets?

If possible, I would consider changing your main sites IP range.
