VPN issue, how to change default gateway ???

Hi Experts,

I have configured a windows 2003 VPN server, client can connect and work smoothly, and everything seems to be ok.

Problem is when VPN user connected to this server, that particular user’s machine default gateway will be the VPN server’s default gateway.  Because of this, clients having problems when accessing the Internet.

Let’s say my VPN server’s Internet speed is 2Mbps. If a client connected to this VPN server who have grater than the VPN server’s Internet speed, that particular clients internet speed also will be 2Mbps too. I need to avoid this situation.

Please advice.

Thanks...

Hi NetMaxtor,

under properties of your vpn connections - networking tab - properties - advanced - untick the use default gateway on remote network

The user will have to modify his routes - for example, he should execute these two commands:

ROUTE CHANGE 0.0.0.0 MASK 0.0.0.0 1.2.3.4
ROUTE ADD 192.168.x.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 192.168.x.y

The above assumes the user's ISP provided gateway is 1.2.3.4
The above assumes your company's network uses a 192.168. address block and x should be filled in with your network's appropriate value.
The above requires you specify x.y as your VPN's gateway.

I do this myself on my laptop - if you need me to and the question is still open tomorrow afternoon (roughly 16 hours) I'll post a copy of the script I wrote to change this semi-automatically for me
