Hello,

I have a desktop and laptop configured on my network, both running Windows 7. My network router is a Belkin N+. I created a Homegroup on my desktop and joined the laptop to it. I granted all of the folder permisions to Everyone (after trying to just the Homegroup). Everything works great until I start Cisco's AnyConnect VPN program so I can connect to work. I work from home 4 out of five days, so, VPN is essential.

I've found a lot of chatter on the internet that Homegroups will not work when VPN is running. So, I thought that if anyone knew how to make this work, it would be you guys.

Is this possible?

Thanks,
Greg

I ran into a similar problem as yours, but thanks to technical support, I was able to fix it quickly. They recommended using the Cisco modular EAP-Fast feature. At first I didn't understand it myself, but then, after reading additional information at https://cciedump.spoto.net/, I figured out that this is a secure protocol with extensibility for authentication using secure tunneling. And I could easily set up my networks. The main thing is not to make a mistake when setting up, otherwise you will have to reset everything and start over, I spent about 2 days on this whole process.
