VPN forces client to use server IP/internet. Causing disconnects.

I have a server with sbs2003, a Dlink router and one nic.
I set up the vpn and when access it from site, connects fine.  I start transferring data and it fails as soon as anything is done.  When I connect the VPN from site and check my WAN IP I get the servers WAN.
How do I connect to my VPN (pptp) just to access one folder and NOT use it for internet access?
1 Solution
by default the client machine uses the VPN's Gateway
to change that edit the properties of the VPN connection
under networking open TCP/IP properties and click advanced
un-check "use default gateway on remote network"
click ok a few times and try to connect again

let us know if htat works
