I have a company laptop which uses a Cisco VPN to log in to the company network in order for me to work.

How do I configure internet I'm using at home in a way where Cisco VPN logs, or another log that can be taken from the company laptop, show a different country that I'm logging into my company network from than the one I'm actually in?

I saw in my router configuration an option to set up a VPN. If I set up a specific VPN on my router and then I connect to this network with my company laptop and connect to the company network via Cisco VPN, will my employer be able to know I'm not logging in from a country I'm connecting to via the VPN configured on the router? Is there a different way how to do this?

I think that you can "mask" your location by using a double VPN connection. In other words, connecting to a personal VPN with your desired location and then connecting to your company VPN. I am not 100% sure about this but maybe you can give it a try.

It is possible for a double VPN service provider, such as NordVPN, to support multiple VPNs from a single device, with appropriate configuring of the NordVPN Double VPN feature.

    That's not the correct use case for the OP. The OP wants to chain the VPN connections.

  • You need two separate VPN providers for chaining and that's what the asker wants.. May 18, 2022 at 17:11
  • I can't use any other VPN on my company laptop, I want to do it on my local network I'm connecting to with company laptop.

  • I guess you could configure a VPN tunnel via your router on your local network and then connect to the company one. May 19, 2022 at 12:12
  • @StevanMilic Thanks, I thought about that. The thing is won't the company know I'm connecting to another VPN ? Not sure about all of the things you can find out from the cisco vpn logs.

Assuming that you don't have local admin on your company's laptop or if you do have, it is not a good idea to make such adjustments on corporate devices.

I'd propose the following solution:

remote host -> VPN tunnel to host located in the preferred country -> use company's VPN as usual.

The local VPN agent should think it is in the preferred country.

Use a site-to-site tunnel and configure the network device to forward all traffic to the desired gateway (look for static routing). As I don't know the details, I'd advise also to disable split tunneling.

Also try to find log structure in Cisco product documentation, but as far I know, by default in logs, there is a remote IP that will be equal to the public IP of your host located in the preferred country.
