How to use same VPN connection for Win7in XP Mode

Answers

  • Actually I wanna connect to VPN on Virtual PC in XP mode not on Win 7 Host PC

    Hi,

     

    If you want to connect VPN via XP mode, we need to change the networking from NAT to the name of your Ethernet card.

     

    Please open XP mode,  click Tools on the menu bar -> Settings -> Networking, in the right pane, choose the correct Adapter.

     

    After that, restart the XP Mode and configure the VPN settings.

     

    Regards,

  • You can't.  If you set up the VPN connection in XP Mode, it will only work through XP Mode.

    If you want your VPN connection on Windows 7, you would need to install the VPN client there.  You can't "share" the VPN connection from XP Mode.

  • You can't really do that, VPN's were designed to be secure and thus
    sharing a connection would be impossible for any normal VPN client.
