How Workaround for Juniper VPN Split Tunneling Restriction?

Tue May 09, 2017 2:28 am

Split Tunneling is a networking concept which allows the user to access the corporate private network via the VPN link, and connect to the local LAN via the same or different interface. This service is usually facilitated through a program such as VPN client software application. One such application is the Juniper Network Connect.

Juniper VPN solution is also used at my workplace for secure remote access. The bad thing is that the Split Tunneling option is turned off by the administrator. With Split Tunneling turned off, the local LAN cannot be accessed during an active VPN session.

In the course of my work, I am often required to work on equipment located at our customer premises. As such, whenever I am on site, I always find it easier to connect to my company’s corporate network via VPN and at the same time, work on our customer equipment by connecting to their LAN switches. In this way, I am able to work on the equipment, check on my company’s knowledge base site for solutions, and respond to important emails, all at the same time. This however requires that Split Tunneling feature to be enabled.

Fortunately though, there is a workaround for Split Tunneling for Juniper VPN solutions.
