If you need to get files or something off of your other machine while on vpn I can only think of 2 possibilities.
1) Setup ftp server on your other machine so you can get to it through the vpn, it would be ultra slow though due to having to go to your work and back.
2) Get a router that can do an IPSec LAN-LAN vpn so your whole lan connects to the vpn instead of only the one machine.
I can't think of any other way to do it at the moment. I'll definatly let you know if I come up with something though because I too would like to do that. I have to use the cisco vpn client to connect to work as well and would like access to my storage server so I can listen to music or something
Well here's the specific app I have in mind: I run a proxy server on computer #1, and on computer #2 I set my proxy to be 192.168.2.3 which is computer #1. I can set the proxy settings of either IE or firefox to accomplish this.
When I VPN computer #2 into work, I still would like to utilize the proxy server on computer #1. Is that possible?
