Iain Posted May 9, 2008 Share Posted May 9, 2008 I've been experimenting with VPN between 2 XP Pro PCs connected via a cross-over cable. I created and shared a folder on one PC which I was able to access from the other via Start>Run>IP AddressShareName. I created a VPN connection (with the PC having the shared folder being able to receive incoming connections) and managed to connect the two PCs satisfactorily. The question that I have is regarding accessing the shared folder from the remote PC. If I connect the PCs via the VPN and then access the shared folder (via Start>Run, as before), how can I be sure that any communication between the PCs (i.e. retrieving files from or placing files into the shared folder) occurs throught the VPN connection rather than simply via the same route that was used prior to using the VPN connection? I just want to get this straight in my head before I start to look at what happens if I try to VPN within a domain and look into IPSec etc. Thanks for your time (and patience!).
