VPN connection doesnt allow for internet connectivity

Hello,

I connect into our company's vpn (Cisco VPN Concentrator 3000).  I login fine, and i can access the various file server and even the mail server.

Problem is that the VPN connection doesnt allow for internet browsing connectivity (web surfing).

Please help.

I am assuming that you can browse the internet from within your office.  Can you ping a web site when you are connected to your VPN from home?  Keep in mind that when you connect thru VPN, you are now using your companies internet pipe as your portal.  You need to make sure that all IP settings are set to your COMPANY'S settings including DNS.

Good Luck

It is by design

but you can reconfig router to make split tunnel

As stated by xrok, this is a function that is by design controlled by the company's network admin

No can do. Only your company net admin can help you.
Trust me on this, there is nothing you can do on your end to get around it. If you want to surf to Yahoo, disconnect from the VPN, go do your thing, and reconnect when you want to do something else on the company network.

If you *are* the net admin and control the VPN3000 device, and can't figure out how to allow split-tunneling, then we can help you, but I would caution you to really think through the ramifications of allowing end users simultaneous access to the wild,wild Internet and your secure corporate network..

Yes, you may want to think about what lrmoore said...
If you are still willing to take a chance.
