Allocating A VPN Client to use a specific network adaptor

We access a remote application via a Nortel VPN client on a users desktop. The client requires IPSec  for security, problem is that once the VPN is up and active, no other applications that use the Internet or that may require access to various remote hosts can gain Internet access. It appears that the VPN takes over all of the pc's network resources.

Instead of dedicating a single machine for this VPN, I was wondering if there is any way to use a second nic card and try and attach the VPN services to 1 nic card while assigning a second address to a second nic card and use that for all other access to the various external host applications. It seems to me that it should be doable but I am not sure how you would make the assignment of the vpn to use 1 nic while all other network related services would use the other.

Am I doomed to get a second machine?

This is actually a security "feature" of the VPN client. It involves the concept of "split-tunneling" and is controlled 100% by the VPN server end, not the client. If you don't control the Contivity box, you have few options.
