Configuring a client PC that is on a VPN

4 posts in this topic

Hello All,

I was wondering if there was a way to utilize this software on the following configuration setup below.

*Household PC as the server ( Win7 x64 connected over both WiFi and Eth)

*Laptop that is on a corporate VPN as a client ( Win7 x64 connected over Eth while on its dock and WiFi when not)

 

Thanks in advance for your input.

That'll depend on how the VPN works or how it is configured. If it allows communication with other machines on your LAN while it is also running, then that would be possible.

How do I determine that the VPN allows that communication? I'm guessing it doesn't allow with the below tests.

I work remotely from home, I have tested disconnecting my Laptop from my corporate network, start up the Synergy service and "automagically" it connects to my Home PC (the server) and the mouse/keyboard link is working. Then while leaving the service running, I reconnected the laptop to the VPN and that connection is severed.

Is that a software VPN or a hardware? Are you connecting to it while wired? or via wireless network?
