Can VPN Server play also file share host role?

Post by gboymix » Thu May 26, 2022 4:55 pm

From the "Remote Access to LAN" use case diagram it looks like that VPN Server has to be a part of the local network.
In my case I don't have a separate machine or device to do that so I wonder can I host SoftEther VPN server on the same windows machine that I plan to use as a file share host?
So basically let my phone and laptop connect to VPN and access files from the same host that is hosting VPN service?

Yes, this SoftEther usage scenario had been extensively explored in Client PC unable to reach shared directory on Server PC.
