When you have devices with the same static IP addresses on two networks how does a VPN keep them straight?
Example: I have a small network in my home office with 3 computers. I routinely connect to a remote office that has a Sonicwall router w/VPN using the Sinicwall VPN client on my main machine. Once connected, I am still able to access devices on both networks which use static IPs (they are servers.)
Both LANs use 192.168.0.x addressing. When I specify using a device like a server or printer at say 192.168.0.10 how does it determine whether to use the address on my physical local LAN or the one on the remote LAN?
Is it doing NAT translation similar to what the router does when it connects to the Internet?
Am I just "lucky" it's working?
