Access a remote computer and take on an IP from that remote LAN on the originating computer
I would like connect to my work computer, and I would like my home computer to take on an IP on the destination network when I connect.
Since I cannot be at work on that network - but I am working remotely - I need to test and connect a network device as if I was in front of my computer at work.
It's a Zebra scanner which needs to take on an IP on the work network.
I need to install software and also connect to network drives as if I was on my computer at work, or on 'a' computer at work on the same internal network.
I currently have remote access to several workstations since I am an administrator, however is there a way using software, that I can connect my home computer to
the remote network, take on a local IP of the destination LAN, and then I can connect to the drives and shares on that network as if I am on a computer at work?
I am not concerned about passing on viruses to the network or other issues since the likely hood of that happening is very low.
Any suggestions for this scenario?
I cannot go to work and install a physical VPN at this point so any other solution is very much appreciated.
