Hello

I'm quite new with RD.

I'm connecting with RD via VPN to a host outside my office, using
Windows XP Pro. The host is Windows 2003 Server. I do not control
that host.

In the host network there is a machine with private IP 192.168.1.1.
My office has also a machine with the _same_ private IP, 192.168.1.1.

Once connected to the host, when I ping 192.168.1.1 I get response
from my local computer; and I want to reach the remote computer with
that address.

Is this possible without reassignig IP addresses and the such?


Thanks,

Toni

VPN won't work if you're using the same subnet in both places. Can you
change the IP network on your home office?

Well, it definately won't work with the same IP address... :) 

I have been "instructed" that it is possible to be in the same subnet,
though.. :(

I've never seen it work....the tunnel will appear to be established, but
won't actually work. Same with any routed connection, no?

I've never been able to make this work either. But then again, I don't
think I've ever succeeded in making routing work where a "route add" command
was needed!

I actually haven't seen it work, but others reported that they can get
it to work.. I guess it fails over to the other gateway for the
private network after getting no response with the first gateway,
perhaps?
