Interesting scenario developed today...should be simple enough, but.....
At home I connect to a Linksys router, that connects to my cox cable modem, to internet.
I was going to try to upload a config remotely for an extreme switch, which its asking for a IP of my TFTP server (normaly my work notebook which at work is a 10.x.x.x address), well my tftp server (pc at home), has a 192 address (handed out via linksys router, static IP is assigned to cox cable modem).....how is this issue dealt with? Obviously I do not put 192.x.x.x. in for the address. I do connect at home via my VPN. Just curious.....
From your question, I'm unclear on where the VPN is being initiated from and where it is terminating... the corporate network or your home router?
If it is the corporate network, then you will have an IP address assigned that is internal to the corporate network that the switch can connect to. This is not your 192 address, this is a different one. When connected to the corporate VPN, look at all of the IP addresses on the system (possibly ipconfig /all if you are using Windows).
If the VPN is terminating at your home router, then you need to connect to the router's outside (public IP) address and then you should have the ability to access your LAN (or both the corporate net and your home net if you use split tunneling). I obtained my outside IP from whatismyip.com, but you can also look on the router's web interface in most cases.
In a pinch, you could port forward on your home router, but I wouldn't do it with TFTP. I would use a more secure protocol like SCP or SFTP.

interface we use the VLAN tag to demultiplex the VLANs. The switch needs
to determine which MAC Address table to look in for a forwarding
decision. To do this we require the switch to do...
