Access my home hard drive through university VPN

Found 29th Mar 2010
I have an airport extreme set up at my home with a 1TB HD connected to it, i can access this remotely when on regular wifi but when i am at university i have to connect to a VPN and then i cannot access the hard drive anymore. Does anyone know how to work around this ? any help would be much appreciated

Blocked by ports - need access to something external that can then access your home...

Well it depends on quite a few factors, the most common is that VPNs are usually sat on the DMZ in the data centre and then access the internet from the DMZ. However this means you won't have a route back unless the VPN subnet is NAT'ed to allow a route back, that's the most common issue with VPN architecture.
