Can't access VPN machine

Rate this question



Hi all,

I've installed Viscosity on a spare laptop hoping to redirect anything i want to do through VPN to that machine.  The problem is once the laptop is connected to the VPN I can no longer access that machine anymore from within my local network.  Is it possible to make it so I can remote desktop to that computer still or access one of its web services running on a certain port once it's connected to a VPN server?

I wanted to leave this machine running 24/7 as just assign things to it or remote in from other machines

Any help would be appreciated thanks

Connect to the VPN, look for the Network and Sharing Centre in your system's Control Panel, then look for the *View You Active Networks* title and under that should be your internet connection with either a Public, Home or Work link. Click on that link and ensure you're using a Home network, and then all you should have to do is take into account that the VPN will be providing your connected device a local 10. address, and you should be able to interact with the rest of the local network. I hope this helps!
