Route host traffic through guest VPN

    Hi there

    Changes have been made to my company's VPN configuration which has disabled VPN access for MacOS clients (there are very few of these). I have a VM of our standard Windows system image running in Parallels which can still connect to the VPN, and so in order to work on any private data, I have to use the Windows VM to copy files locally so the Mac (host) can see them.

    Is there any way I can set up a virtual adapter on the MacOS side which will forward the traffic over the Windows VPN running in a VM?

    Thanks in advance!

    PS: I know the obvious solution is "get your IT dept to deploy the new VPN config to your Mac", and I'm working on that, but that's going to take some time. I'm looking for an interim solution which is better than lots of copying, and saving anything which requires me to direct access an internal server for when I'm physically in the office.

    I have the exact same issue. Did you ever get a solution for this? If so, I'd love to know what it is!
