I am disabled and work from home part time. One particular assignment requires me to login the customer network in London. The customer only allows access to its network from my company's network in chicago. My home is in Toronto. I have been managing to do my work by doing RDP from toronto to a computer in chicago and then logging in to the customer website. However, it is increasingly becoming difficult due to latency in RDP. I tried to see if I can VPN into my customer network and then again VPN to london. I used windows XP VPN but once I am on a VPN connection to my company's VPN server in chicago, I do not get access to any computer on the LAN in chicago, let alone access internet through the VPN in chicago (i.e. an internet website should see my ip address as a computer in chicago and not in toronto). I finally realized that doing double VPN (toronto to chicago, then chicago to london from the same computer) is not possible.
So are there any other ideas. If I don't get a solution to this, it will jeopardize my assignment and my only way of making a living
Thanks guapo and jefro. Jefro Reducing RDP bandwidth does not alter the performance much(screen refreshes/screen switching improve marginally). Moreover the issue is more due to latency from what I have experienced (e.g.mouse click taking some time to register and by that time I have clicked several times already so something else opens up)
guapo The feature overview is good but will require Cisco appliances to be installed. My employer is not going to pay for it just for me.
I was thinking along the lines of tunneling ALL the internet data from my computer to a dedicated computer in chicago and then programming it (somehow) to send the London bound data on VPN. Wishful thinking though at present. I was hoping raw sockets etc can do this.
