I have a VPN set up using Win2K server running as a Terminal Server at the head office and a WinXP PC at the remote end.

When connected to the VPN from the WinXP remote end, I cannot browse the internet or send and receive emails using my local IE and OUTLook.

I have another site that is similar where I am able to do this.

On the VPN I am having a problem with the only device I can get a response from when I issue a ping is the Terminal server itself.

On the good VPN I get response from any PC's, Printsharers etc... on the network.

Must be something simple but I just can't see what the difference between the 2 networks is.

Unticking the 'Use default Gateway on remote network' doe's not resolve this issue and in fact when I turn it off I cannot even connect to the Terminal Server.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
