Both sites use the same IP range on a VPN connection

Situation: A small business owner wants to use the VPN to access the office server. The LAN administrator setup VPN on the Windows 2003 server It works fine when he tests. However, it doesn't work at the owner's home computer because the computer us the same IP range as the Office IP addresses.

Problem: The owner doesn't want to change the IP addresses.

Solution: Since this is Windows 2003, we assign static IP for the VPN client. Also because the server uses the static IP, we can use route command to modify the routing table on the VPN client so that the VPN client can access the remote server without changing the local IP address.

Note: you can create a batch file including auto VPN and routing so that the user can access the server automatically.
