Microsoft, Server, 2003--How to surf on local connection rather than vpn

I have a vpn setup for clients on my domain.  The problem is that When connected, the clients surf through the server, rather than their own connections, which due to my small upload pipe, leads to delays and slow internet.

How can i make it so that they are connected to the vpn, but they surf directly through their own connection?

thanks

I am going to make a great leap and assume you are using PPTP VPN?

If so, you just need to set the gateway option.

> Go to properties of the VPN connection;
> Open "Networking" tab;
> Open up properties for TCP/IP;
> Click "Advanced" button'
> Uncheck "Use default gateway on remote network".

Now only stuff actually destined to the VPN connected network will route through the VPN.  Other stuff will go normally out the local network gateway.

i gave that a try, but when i uncheck it, then reconnect to the server, I can no longer access the network recources on the VPN.

Is there anything else i should try?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

Sorry, have been slammed by a project the past few days.

You are probably having a name resolution issue.  Two solutions:

1)  go to the TCP/IP configuration of the VPN connection and set the DNS servers to point to your internal servers (noting that this will cause all DNS resolution to run across the VPN).

2)  Put the appropriate entries into the local hosts file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts) on the PC's.  Include an entry for every internal server resource they will access.
