I would think that you should be able to set up the VPN on just the laptop to connect both units, or the desktop if you only want the desktop on the VPN. I could be mistaken though. Can you provide some more details on how you are sharing internet between the two and what VPN software you are connecting to?
Yeah, sure. I'm using Private Internet Access because I heard from several reviews that it's really good. I use the client version they provide. My desktop doesn't have a built in wireless card, so I have an ethernet cable running from my desktop to my laptop. I configured the laptop to be able to share it's internet access through windows. So essentially, when I connect to the vpn, the traffic goes through my laptop, then my router. I'm just wondering if it's unsafe to only be connected on my desktop.
