There is a security feature in most VPN clients that blocks local connections, including local Internet access, to protect the office/remote network. If this is a Windows VPN client 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"

If this is using a VPN program from the office, you will need to talk to the net admin about split DNS or similar solutions.


I hope this helps !

that's a feature not a bug!.. most companies do this to prevent dual tunneling, where you could say connect your work to some of your friends in the Russian business network.

I find that if i open my IE session first, so that it grabs the Proxy from the Lan, then open the VPN, i can still use the cached credentils of the first IE window until its shut down, Then it reverts to the VPN over-ride.

If your company utilise a proxy on site try adding those details to your VPN connection through IE:

Tools  >  Internet Options  >  Connections

Select the VPN in question from the:  Dial-up and VPN Settings list and choose 'Settings'

Tick 'Use a Proxy Server'  >  Input the proxy server name/IP (IP maybe best to avoid any DNS issues) and port  >  Tick Bypass for local addresses.
