Thank you both. Unfortunately, as I tried to express in my message, sometimes I am in an environment where I don't have control over addresses, and where there are direct conflicts, like the .123 example that I offered. When I am at home ( home office ), I can probably affect the local end of the link, but when I am at Panera, I can not.
I gather from both of you, though, that setting my "local IP" on the machine to something in the 172. network, without changing any of the other environment ( either LAN ), just will not work.
I guess I will need to try and persuade the people who own the remote end of the VPN to change the addresses at their end.
