I'm connected to a LAN using Ethernet connection. When I open a VPN connection by using Nortel Contivity Client I do establish the VNP but I can keep my LAN connection. It seems like all my network traffic is enrouted through my VPN connection.

Any idea to configure my Nortel Client?

Thank you in advance.

This is one of the 'features' of many VPN Clients - including Nortel Contivity - where that function is controlled by the corporate end. It is a security risk to allow you simultaneous access to your home/other network and the corporate network at the same time.
There is no way for you to get around it by adjusting the client on your end.
