How to remotely access using fortinet dialup vpn?

This is using fortinet dialup vpn to connect to my office network from home. However, found that both office network and my home are using exactly same subnet (10.0.0.0/16). What should I do resolve this conflict?

Thanks in advance

Change your home network addresses. E.g. you can allocate an arbitrary subnet like 10.99.98.0/24. Or, better, use a Class C network like 192.168.47.0/24.

Using a 10.0/16 on both sides is ambitious :-). And calls for issues if needing connection between sites, like here ...
The network range you're using belongs to "Private IP address" (10.0.0.0 - 10.255.255.255), meaning to say it's non-routable. If you wish to connect to your office network from home, you'll need a "Public IP address" then perform a NAT to translate your "Public IP address" to your "{Private IP address).

Note: This is usually done via the firewall. (NAT)

Hope this helps.
Roland, this is about a VPN, so public/private addresses are no issue.

Hi Qlemo,

Any alternative other than changing the subnet?
