So let's say you finally bothered to get your VPN connection to work going after a year or so of not caring. Let's say you finally get it working. Let's say you can't figure out why your remote desktop software won't work. Let's say over the course of a day or so, and very little effort mind you, that still don't get it working. Let's say you realize it's most likely a port issue. Let's say you look up what port your rdesktop client is listening on. Let's say you decide to try and ssh to your home box and then connect work via VPN. Let's say you do this. Let's say that you forget that by doing this none of your proxy's are set at home and more over this now breaks your ssh session. Let's say that your VPN connection will never disconnect b/c it's a LINUX box and does VPN the right way. Let's say all of these things just happened and that you are now unable to connect to your home machine. I'm just sayin that some of that stuff my or may not have just happened.
