Win xp pro.  I have setup 4 laptops to connect to the server via VPN, by downloading connection manager.  3 of the laptops work fine.  I can connect the VPN and then open outlook and use exchange for my email over the vpn.  However, Laptops 3 + 4 are located in a french office. Laptop 3 connects to the VPN and outlook works ok, whilst also allowing access to the internet.  Laptop 4, looses the internet connenction once the VPN is activated.  When the connection to the internet is lost by connecting laptop 4 to the vpn, the internet connection is also lost to laptop 3?  The french office is accessing the internet via an Orange Livebox.

Sounds like you are using the Windows VPN. If so, there is a security feature in the VPN client that blocks local connections, including local Internet access, to protect the office/remote network. You can disable this if you wish. To do so on the client/connecting PC, go to:
control panel | network connections | right click on the VPN/Virtual adapter and choose properties | Networking | TCP/IP -properties | Advanced | General | un-check  "Use default gateway on remote network"
