I'm not sure exactly what networking scheme you're describing, but I
explained why there's no easy, good solution in the original thread.
Basically, the home network uses, as do other LANS I
connect to. My VPN uses When the laptop is connected
locally at home, it's 192.168.0.x, but when it's connected remotely,
it's 10.0.0.x.

Just to be clear, the issue is not reaching the hosts on the local
network from the laptop: that's simple. The issue is having the hosts on
the local network be able to initiate connections to the laptop without
knowinng or caring whether it's connected locally or over the VPN.
