VPN & downloads over it

If I use VPN to access my office network from home and download some stuff (videos, photos, etc.) from internet on my office PC, do I have to worry that I will be consuming the download limit (1 GB) specified by my ISP at home?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It sounds like you remote into your office PC, so if this is the case, your office PC is using your company’s connection and the only traffic going through your Home ISP is the VPN and RDP traffic. So no you don’t have to worry about it consuming your download limit.

==================
I disagree. If the VPN connection is made across your home link, the traffic to/from the VPN network will be part of the total traffic on your home link. It will count toward your usage volume.

    I'm on Labnuke99's side. The bandwidth for the file transfers is between your office and your office ISP and wouldn't affect your home ISP traffic limit unless, for some reason, you're downloading them locally there as well.
