I have a remote computer behind a VPN (which I have no control of). The IT team of the remote factory wanted me to install Palo Alto Networks' Global Protect program to access the VPN, which is working fine.
This program creates a new network interface with IP 192.168.20.58. Also when I look at the route table of my computer I can see a line with destination 10.0.0.0/8 should use the interface 192.168.20.58. So, as I understand it routes the traffic through this network adapter whenever I want to reach the remote computer, which has an IP of 10.11.88.3.
This remote computer also has access to a local private network (which I have control) through another network interface on the remote computer which has the IP 172.16.224.1 and there are 4 other devices on this network.
I was searching a way to directly access these 4 devices from my computer when I had this idea: What if I add an entry to the route table of my computer as 172.16.0.0/16 as destination and 10.11.88.3 as a gateway. I think I also need to add another rule to the remote computer to route between two network interfaces on it, but I cannot figure out what it is.
So the questions are:
- Is it even possible to access to these remote devices in this setting?
- If so, can my idea work with correct settings and what are these settings?
- Can you suggest another way for accessing these devices?
