This may be a rather advanced topic for these forums but I'm not sure where else to turn. When I'm working from home, I VPN into my office using the craptacular Cisco VPN software (fronted by Shimo on the Mac, so at least the interface is nicer). However, I lose access to my home network. I can no longer access my file server at home when I'm VPN'ed into the office. On Windows XP, there was an obscure option buried in the network connection properties that would basically tell the machine to also remain on the local network while connected to the VPN. I cannot find a way to do this with Cisco/OS X. I tried creating a second virtual Ethernet connection and manually assigning it a local IP address, thinking that perhaps the Cisco client would only monopolize the first Ethernet connection, but it still does not work. Does a anyone have any ideas?
