you may need to configure a static route to your computers at the office if the following are both true:

a. your office computers use a internal network addressing scheme (192.168.x.x, 10.x.x.x, or 172.16-32.x.x)
b. your VPN does not issue this static route by default to VPN clients


after connecting to the VPN type the following at a command prompt:
ROUTE ADD w.w.w.w MASK x.x.x.x y.y.y.y

where
w.w.w.w = the IP address of the network portion of your office Segment (should end in at least one '0')
x.x.x.x =  the subnet mask of your office
y.y.y.y = the public IP address of the VPN you are connecting to

here's how it would look if your computer at work ranged from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254
route add 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.25.0 y.y.y.y
(don't your your VPN device's IP address)
