Route Around The Default Gateway On The Remote Network
Most clients we have require that we connect to their network via VPN. Nothing new about that of course. But some clients require that we check the Use default gateway on remote network option when setting up the VPN.
That effectively shuts down my ability to access resources on my local network as all traffic gets routed through the remote network.
This so beats my twine and wire MacGuyver solution of simply setting up Remote Desktop to another machine that is then connected to the VPN.
With persistence and problem solving skills like that, a company would be lucky to hire Steve. So we did this past month!
