Hi Guys,

I'm new... Really new. As in, my day job is at 20th Century Fox and this is becoming my night job. I'm testing out Meraki gear for a hotel I'm building (yes, by night). My test site is in Sherman Oaks and I'm located in Beverly Hills. If I tunnel in using VPN, can I run wireshark on my machine in Beverly Hills to assess the 'test network' in Sherman Oaks? Or, should I screenshaire with a machine on the local network in Sherman Oaks and run WireShark from there?

Thanks,

Alex Kirkwood

No.

Reason: How are the packets form Sherman Oaks supposed to get into the VPN tunnel to your Wireshark system in Beverly Hills?

Or, should I screenshare with a machine on the local network in Sherman Oaks

Yes.

Regards
Kurt
