VPN and internet

Hello,
My networking system at the office is protected by an ISA server 2000. Therefore If I want to use my services from a remote position (i.e. my desktop at home) I need to use a regular VPN dialer.
At home I am using an ADSL modem to access the internet.
Well, whenever I am connected with the VPN I can use those remote services that are behind the firewall but I can't access any web pages, get e-mails or use any on-line services that I normally use when connected with my ADSL modem.
The problem is most inconvenient when I receive an e-mail (from my work account while connected with the VPN) with a web page attachment or a URL because I don't have access to the internet.
Is there a way to resolve this problem on my computer or do I have to ask my network administrator to do something back on our servers (he doesn't know as well and I'm kind of asking on his behalf).
Thanks.

It sounds like the intention is for you to configure your web-browser to go through the ISA server as a web-proxy, just as if your machine were physically on the company network.

This way, your machine can still be protected by whatever anti-virus gateways, etc. the company has.

You should talk to the IT folks at your company. They should be able to help you set this up pretty easily.

The answer:

Internet Explorer -> Properties -> Connection Tab -> <Your VPN Connection> -> Settings -> Check : "Use a proxy server for this connection (......" -> Your Proxy server address -> Port 8080 -> Check : "Bypass proxy server for local addresses" -> OK yourself out
