Share guest VPN connection with host

Hi,

Mac OS does not support my VPN client. So I'm running Windows XP SP3 as guest to connect. Is there a way to share my guest VPN connection with Mac OS? This way I won't have to use any other Windows software.

Btw I have searched the forums and found some ppl with the same question but no clear solution was given.

I have Snow Leopard 10.6.1 and VMware 2.0.

Thanks!

It depends on what VPN product and how the VPN administrator has configured it. Many VPNs do not allow the interaction with the "local LAN", which means once you establish the VPN tunnel, you cannot access things like network printers or network shares at your remote location. In that case you would not be able to do what you want.

If your VPN does allow for local LAN access and the VPN admin has not resticted Windows Internet Connection Sharing, then you might be able to connect the Mac onto the VPN tunnel. Take a look at
