Hi Guys,

I support many clients and 99% of them use VPN connections for my access. I use Cisco, Juniper, Sonicwall, etc. You name it, I have to use it.

I want to be able to log into my main PC from a laptop when I'm not in my home office so that I don't have to install all those VPN's and connection details on my laptop. So naturally I want to use ScreenConnect. I will connect to my PC using SC, then I will want to start whatever VPN connection to the client.

Question: Will ScreenConnect still continue to work? Or, will I just lose it once the VPN connection runs on my office system?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

No replies to this? I would have thought it to be a common question.

I use SC and VPNs all the time and it really depends on the specific VPN and how its configured/if they block anything. For example if the VPN you connect to is a full tunnel and pushes all of your traffic (including internet) through the VPN does that company block the outbound connection of SC? If it doesn't then it will reconnect. Or if the VPN only pushes local traffic and allows you to utilize your current internet connection for internet traffic then you should be fine, there might be a brief disconnect but it should reconnect.

As long as the VPN connection allows Internet access (or access to the screenconnect server at least) it will be fine.

Usually I experience loss of control/viewing for ~5 - 15 seconds when a VPN connection is made that takes over the default IP route.

Personally, I use SC and VPNs all the time. We use sc to help and support our customers. So we use vpn connection through the existing screenconnect session and our work is actually much easier. While browsing fot the best VPN, we stumbled upon this article https://www.firesticktricks.com/best-vpn-kodi.html . Maybe you find it useful too:)

If it's based on timing then you could just go into the ScreenConnect console and command-line initiate the VPN connection when needed. It's a couple of extra clicks but it should work using openvpn. See this guide mentioned some vpns app supported openvpn: https://www.bestvpn.co/
