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?

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
