I am an embedded software developer and like many people currently I work from home. My company resently switched from a VPN based solution to ZScaler Private Access. When Private Access is enabled I am having trouble accessing my development network. Here’s my configuration:
- I have my private network with internet access (192.168.1.0/24)
- I have a local development network (172.16.0.0/24)
- I use a tunnel to my company via Zscaler private access.
I can access my private network without any issues, even when private access is enabled. But I can’t access my local development network. I had similar issues with the previous VPN solution, but I was able to solve the issue with a static route. Unfortunately this solution doesn’t work for ZScaler.
My company’s IT support knows even worse than I do
Do you have an idea how to fix the issue? Currently I have to enable and disable ZScaler Private Access multiple times per hour.
