I have to access two remote systems via Cisco VPN. It's really painful, as I have to keep switching between two remote machines on two different VPNs.

I know Cisco VPN only runs one instance per PC, but is there a way to run two VPNs and remote simultaneously to two PCs? I have two internet connections (one wired, one wireless).

Maybe through a virtual machine for one VPN+RemoteDesktop, and natively connect to the other from Windows?

Sure its possible, but you won't like how you have to do it: virtual machines. Put each cisco client in it's own virtual machine, and your main machine will act like a dumb network switch from the perspective the vpn client.

Maybe it would be worth it if I had two monitors. Sigh. – ashes999 Mar 18 '11 at 16:41
@ashes999: Why do you need two monitors for that? – grawity Mar 18 '11 at 19:34
@grawity because I need to see the two systems side-by-side :O – ashes999 Mar 18 '11 at 19:43
@ashes999: To use two VPNs? You don't, if you can get one of the machines to act as a router... somehow. – grawity Mar 18 '11 at 19:50
+1 for possible, but you're not gonna like it. It's the true answer. – Ian Boyd Jul 20 '11 at 19:30
