Hi,

I have repeatedly tried to connect two offices with vpn and I manage to do allright. When the clients of the remote office connect through the vpn to the Win2k Server they are not able to browse the web at the same time. If I disconnect from the vpn they work just fine. I use two ADSL lines 384/128 dl/ul and the server is running Win2k Server and all terminals use Windows 98 at both offices. Any ideas anyone?

Thanks in advance,

Christos

Yes you need to tell the client to use the remote gateway when creating the vpn connectiod to access the web. This is a security feature to prohibit people from proxying trhough the vpn tunnel into your network.

My answer is correct, and paq. I have seen an increase in split tunneling questions so think this might have some value.
