A VPN is simply a network.  TestComplete uses whatever network layer is there to do it's thing.  There's not really anything that using a VPN will prevent in TestComplete.

Why automate?  I do automated testing because there's only so much a human being can do and remain healthy.  Sleep is a requirement.  So, while people sleep, automation that I create does what I've described above in order to make sure that nothing gets past the final defense of the testing group.

Re: Execute tests through vpn

Hi,

 

TestComplete must be installed on the same machine where the tested application is installed.

Does this answer your question?

Re: Execute tests through vpn

TestComplete and the application that we test, are on the same VM.

The vpn connection will actually be used to access a database on clients environment.

I guess it will be solved if we install vpn on the vm,

but are there some other limitations with TC that will cause breaking the vpn connection?
