This would be assigned by the VPN server. If you don't want to use that gateway and can't change the server settings, just manually enter it in for that connection.

When you set up your RAS server, you have an option to configure it with the DHCP settings it receives, or to use a pre-defined set of settings. As I don't have a RAS server in front of me, please look at this link: http://www.microsoft.com/serviceproviders/support/isp_ras_configuration.asp, I think the settings you want are on the IP tab. Or try this link here: http://search.microsoft.com/search/results.aspx?st=b&View=en-us&s=6&c=0&qu=RAS

You can also just change the settings on the client by going in to the TCP/IP properties and manually entering in a gateway.

hi gator420
thank you for the RAS server answers
to refine my main problem: ich have a client (win2000) in a LAN, lets say 192.168.1.100. gateway is 192.168.1.1. without vpn the pc uses internet via the standard gateway route. as soon as you enable the vpn connection, standard gateway becomes the RAS server and no internet access via 192.168.1.1. (because no internet access over the RAS server allowed)
How to use the vpn connection AND keeping standard gateway 192.168.1.1 on the CLIENT.

This seems to be a common problem in windows 2000. As in XP you have a setting under TCP/IP for using normal standard gateway, which is exactly what i'm looking for.

Just modify the VPN connection in your client network connections to use the gateway of 192.168.1.1. It will override the settings given to it by the RAS server. Or should anyway. Let me know..
