DynDNS Updater IP control

I have installed DynDNS Updater in a computer that connects to a remote VPN but instead of taking the VPN remote IP address, is it possible that it takes local ISP ip address?

THanks.

It should by default locate your local public IP (the one assigned by your ISP).
What happens when you click the "detect my IP" button in the client configuration?

When I am connected to the VPN and I click that button, I will grab the VPN IP address, not the local.

Ah! A VPN client?
If it is a VPN client you need to enable Split-tunneling. If it is a Windows VPN client you can do so using the method below. If it is a different client such as a Cisco client it must be done at the VPN server end by the VPN administrator.

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"
