Connect to Home & Office Network from Laptop

Good Morning

I have a laptop running XP Pro SP2 which I use to connect to networks at work and at home.  The problem is my home network has to use a different IP range than at work so that I can connect to the work VPN, which means that I need to keep changing the IP address depending on my location.  Is there a better way to do this?


RE: Connect to Home & Office Network from Laptop


Are you using static IPs at both places, work and at home?

if so the you can use the alternate configuration tab on the tcp/ip properties,in the Lan connetion properties page.

It's always a PEBKAC problem.

wrong forum. Nothing to do with Network General Sniffer
