I am trying to access my local printer and network while connected to my company VPN. Right now, I'm unable to when connected to VPN. What is the best way to go so I can have local network access when connected to my VPN.

Ive read about split DNS and about a batch file to delete routes and insert the original pre-VPN. I am at a loss as to what is the best way to go or how to do either of the 2.

That is how a normal VPN works, So you either need split DNS or fix the DNS for local access and see if it works.

ELse use a locally attached printer.

I hope this helps !
