    My company uses the default 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 scheme for our internal
    LAN.

    We have a VPN setup that gives VPN users connecting an IP address between
    192.168.1.20 - 192.168.1.25

    Of course, most home users have the 192 network as their default as well, so
    when they connect to our VPN and try to send packets for our server of
    192.169.1.2, their router see's the destination IP and does not forward it
    out to the VPN.

    I know having the user change their network to something else, such as the
    200 network will solve the problem, but I am hesitant on having users jump
    into their routers. Is there anything I can do on my end aside from
    completely changing the companies internal IP's scheme to allow VPN users to
    connect?

    range or subnet for peer to peer VPN. For example, in your case, you can use
    IP 172.16.5.1 for the VPN host and 172.16.5.2 for ...
