How to configure split tunneling for SBS 2003 VPN

I've got a SBS 2003 server and I used the "Configure Remote Access" wizard to enable VPN functionality.  I downloaded the Connection Manager from the Remote Web Workplace.  I can connect to the VPN and everything works great.

I discovered, however, that I am routed through my work's ISP for all Internet requests when connected to the VPN. In the past, when using Cisco PIX VPN's, this was easily resolved by enabling split tunneling - it would use my normal Internet connection except when accessing an address that resides on the work subnet.

Any ideas on how I can go about this using SBS 2003 Routing and Remote Access? Thanks.

Actually, you don't need to use split tunneling because the issue can be resolved at the client side by not using the SBS Connection Manager (VPN client that you downloaded), but instead configuring a VPN connection manually and then changing the Properties > Networking > Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) > Advanced > General, and unticking the "use default gateway on remote network".

You should understand, though, that the reason that this is enabled by default on the SBS VPN is for security purposes.  Generally, VPN connections should ONLY be used on computers that are members of your domain (ie, Laptops).  Otherwise, it's recommended that you use Remote Web Workplace to connect to your office workstation to work from.
