BEFVP41 - Client software question

    Our company, somewhat lacking in networking expertise, recently purchased a BEFVP41 so that our employees can access the LAN from outside the office. We have set Remote Secure Group and Remote Security Gateway both to "Any."

    Question--supposing an employee gains access to the internet from a public network (hotel, convention, etc), with its own LAN. Once this employee uses some client software to connect to our company's VPN, can the other computers on that public LAN also access the VPN?

    I am confused because if two Linksys VPN routers connect, other computers sharing the LAN with them can access the tunnel. It seems to me that likewise, if a client connects to a VPN, other computers on the LAN with him should also be able to connect to the VPN?

    Hopefully I am wrong, because ideally this is not the behavior we would like. Please give any input you can to clarify my thoughts.

    Thanks in advance,

    No just the PC running the VPN client will have access to the network :)
