Our network that was setup prior to me, when a user logs into the win2k vpn servers that user can only get the local subnets.  If we change it in the default vpn properties to use the vpn server as the default gateway, then the user can not get internet access at the same time.  Is there a way i can do an add route command to the computers logging in after they login.  So that they will be able to route and still use the internet?

also, what would the add route command be.  they need access to our subnet.

In your statement "when a user logs into the win2k vpn servers that user can only get the local subnets." I am assuming that VPN users can access what ever networks that your VPN server internal IP address is on. And if all your other servers from other networks are not using VPN server as default gateway, then you need to add a route at your default gateway to point VPN traffic to your VPN server.
for example, all your servers are using as their default gatway, your VPN server is and your VPN users are at You need to add a static route at
something lise "route add mask -p"
