I have Windows XP VPN set up to access my network at work [gateway 192.168.23.1] from my network at home [gateway 192.168.0.1]. I have a DLink DSL524T router at work, which allows VPN and the relevant forwarding is set up OK to the required PC, which is on 192.168.23.10. I have set up this PC to accept incoming calls and the VPN opens and authenticates OK. Both machines are running Windows XP SP3.
When the VPN is connected, I cannot access my local network or internet. I am aware that is is a common problem and I have unticked the "use default gateway" box in the advanced TCP/IP settings, but it still have no access to either local network or internet. The strange thing about all this is that I did not have this problem until I replaced the PCs, which were running Windows XP Pro SP2, because I needed faster machines.
Can anyone advise how I can retain local network access?
