    Can't connect to Remote Desktop over the internet while VPN is active


    Hello.

    I have my personal computer in my home which I have to connect from my laptop at work, I setup it everything to be able to connect over the internet with Dynamic DNS and it works very good, the problem is when I connect to a VPN from my computer at home.
    The current remote desktop session remains connected even if I've changed the IP, but the problem is when I have to reconnect, because it can't connect again. I have to enter that computer via TeamViewer and turn off the VPN.

    What can I do to prevent this and be able to connect always to my computer even if it has running a VPN?

    Thank you very much.

    :)

  2. WM6.5 - Remote desktop over VPN

    So i am trying to access a server on my network using my MW6.5 remote desktop over a VPN-connection

    These are the issues i have:

    • Remote desktop connects locally but not remote
    • VPN is working for Active Sync but not Remote Desktop
    • I have tried to access the remote client using only Remote desktop, and also tried to start the VPN-connection manually but there is no go
    Remote desktop works perfectly locally but as soon as i am outside the network it don't work.
    I use the same VPN-settings as for my Active Sync (pushmail from my exchange) and i am also trying to access the exchange server... that is, the same IP is used for both Active Sync and Remote Desktop.

    I would guess that since Active Sync activelly start the VPN-connection when it tries to sync my email Remote Desktop would do the same when i use it - but no!

    I am using a localized HTC HD Mini (swedish), we have a cisco VPN-concentrator, server is running Windows Server 2008 R2. I would like to know how to make this work.
    (if i missed some info needed i will supply what is asked for)

    Is it possible to share internet connection via remote desktop?

    RDP is not capable of Internet sharing, so you can't share Internet using RDP with standard applications. There are many way to share Internet from a Windows box to another one. I suggest you to use VPN. You should do following steps:

    1. Run VPN Server on your server with unlimited internet access
    2. Connect to VPN server from your limited computer
     
  4. Can't connect to Remote Desktop over the internet while VPN is active

    Need help Windows 10 VPN and Remote Desktop Connection

    I have a Desktop PC in the office that is running Windows 10 Pro. I've setup a native Windows VPN on the desktop, so that I could Remote Desktop Connect to it through the Internet. It works fine in the office (I can connect to the VPN using my laptop and
    then RDC into the PC). However, I have 2 issues:

    • When I connect to the VPN and RDC from home (not connected to the same WiFi network) RDC disconnects after 5 seconds.
    • The VPN ("Incoming Connections" icon in the Network Adapter window) disappears every time I restart my PC. Therefore I have to recreate the VPN every time I restart my PC.

    Please advise, how could I solve this issue? I'll be happy with any support as I've been struggling with this for 2 weeks.

    Thanks,

    Saul
