    Ok looking for a good answer here. Is it possible to isolate 1 PC that connects to a buisness network via VPN through a router from 3 other lap tops on a LAN by using another router. My idea was this...

    1st Router with 4 ports has DHCP enabled to a hub and 2 of the PC's the other PC to the hub. Then the PC that needs isolating goes to a second router that has the first router as its gateway.

    How does this sound to all? Any good sugestion would be great.

    Thanks all

    My experiance on a home network of VPN is onece my laptop was VPN connected to the coporate netwrok - my home network was blocked and I could not access any components on my network and no other PC could access my laptop - once i dropped the VPN line of course it was all available to the home network.

    That's my experience with VPN's too. I have a couple of clients that I use a VPN to connect to their networks, and the machine I'm using loses any access to my local network or the Internet while they're connected. I have a special machine that I use just for VPN connections.
