How to print locally when connected to a VPN using VPN-1 Secureclient

How can I set the Checkpoint VPN-1 Secureclient to allow me to print to a printer on the loal LAN when I am connected to another network via the VPN client?

I am not sure if split tunnelling is enabled?

You should be able to have access to both networks, the Local and the VPN too.  if you go to the command prompt, and type ipconfig /all , u will see two ip addresses, one for Lan and another rfor VPN.

Yes I can see both networks, but doesn't the VPN client alter the routing table or something so that traffic only goes via the VPN, how can I set it up so traffic can be sent to both, ie I need to print on the local network, while running an application from the VPN.

A bit more on this, I think I read somewhere that you connect ot the VPN, when you want to print you run a batch file that changes the routing metric, once you have finished you run a batch file that changes the routing metric back to what it was.

Any idea how to write a batch file for an XP machine to do this?

I figured this out, if you diable the security profile it allows you to print locally as well.
