I work for a small start-up and I need to set up a VPN connection to our data center. The way that I want it to work is that my coworkers need to connect to our office via VPN first and remote desktop to their PC. After they authenticate to their machine they launch a new VPN session that connects to our data center. The problem is that when the new VPN session is launched from their office PC to connect to the data center it kills the remote desktop session from the original VPN.

The office network, bandwidth and VPN are hosted by a 3rd party ISP. They issue VPN client IPs that are in a different subnet than our private office network. The data center hosts a Windows Server 2003-based PPTP VPN and allows remote access to servers on our data center network.

Is there a way that I can configure the Data Center VPN so it does not kill the office VPN after the connection is established?
Thanks in advance for your help.
