Allow VMware Guests Access to your company’s network through VPN

Dear friends,

I have challenge today that I need to install OVO agent on Windows Machine hosted on my VMware Workstation 6.5… which I need access to an OVO Unix server located in my company.

I have access to the VPN from my Windows Vista machine.

I decided to use the VPN connection as bridge to my company’s network

so I tried but I failed to connect. as the VPN connections from vista is configured as client to network VPN not Network to network.

so I found that the only solution is to create VPN connections on the VM Guest (in my case Windows Server 2003) to connect to the company’s network which working totally fine.

this was just for sharing thoughts.

Best regards,

Mahmoud Ibrahim
