I'm setting up a home office for telecommuting to my employer. I'm a software engineer. I need access to both our Dev servers (located at the employer) and our Production servers (located at our 3rd-party hosting company).
I'm under the impression that I can VPN into only one network at a time (i.e. only my employer or the hosting company). But that's not acceptable because I need access to both at the same time to do my job. For instance, if I need to move a file from Dev to Production. Or run a SQL query on Dev and compare the results with Production.
How can I access both environments? Or if the answer is highly dependent on some things, what details do I need to get? Does the hosting company need to change some config settings or whitelist my home IP or something?
My machine is Windows 7 with Cisco VPN client. And our servers are Windows 2003. I work in a small company, so there is little bureaucracy and IT staff.
