Create Account How it Works

Unable to access Homegroup while Cisco AnyConnect VPN running

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?
