Internet Connectivity during VPN session
Posted on 2003-11-24
I am in progress testing a VPN solution for my clients and have run into a show stopper. I am using two Linksys BEFSX41's on DSL internet connections. I have managed to establish the VPN tunnel and connect to resources on the remote end. The problem arises when I attempt to access the internet (i.e. this website) I receive the "server cannot be found" error. I realize this is because the default route is the tunnel gateway. Is there a work around to this? Would it be possible to have a BEFSR11 as the internet gateway, and then hang the BESFSX41 off the LAN connection? I was thinking that I could use the port forwarding feature on the BEFSR11 to route VPN connections to the VPN endpoint, but was not sure if the routers would be able to secure the connection. Thanks for the help!
