    VPN - how do you connect to local network HDD's on own LAN


    Hi folks

    Those of you who use VPN's - is there any easy way of accessing networked hard drives on your LAN while connected to the VPN -- I can do it treating the lan as connected over the Interenet but that's a hassle - I want to use standard lan connections via simple networking -- possible or not. Windows 10 Machines.

    Cheers

  4. VPN - how do you connect to local network HDD's on own LAN

    [SOLVED] Open VPN connection dropping outside network activity on only one of three devices

    Hey Aquinus,

    I am one step ahead of you. After reinstalling the client, I have enabled 'route all traffic' and the connection has held for over two hours.
    In most cases VPN should automatically route all traffic. it’s possible that with wireless connections this is not happening by default and thus requires you to force it to route all traffic.


    What you said about the change of DNS though might also be of interest to me. I have noticed that when the VPN is connected I cannot browse network shares however I can still connect if I create a manual path/shortcut. I thought this might have something to do with DNS and the VPN not making an exception for local traffic (like you see in IE proxy settings).
