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.
