    Set up connection to your workplace using VPN.

    By using the Virtual Private Network, you can switch from your public network to the Work network. But for doing this you should be knowing the VPN server name. Go to the Start Menu and open Control Panel. Type Network in the search bar and click on the Network and Sharing Center and select for Set up a connection and then click on the "Connect to a workplace".

    Is your work network safe?

    Make sure that following things are there in your work network when you connect to your home network. This will ensure that your home network is safe to connect. If you are using the wireless network then your wireless connection should be encrypted with Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) or Wi‑Fi Protected Access (WPA). For all types of networks, firewall or any other Network Address Translation (NAT) is needed.

    Status of your Network.

    You can see that your computer is connected to the home network or work network any other network. And what type of connection you are using and what level of access you have on a particular network can also be confirmed by going to "Network and Sharing Center" which you can find in Network and Internet presented in control panel. Even you can view more information about your network in the network map.
