Microsoft Server 2008 VPN advertise multiple networks?

Decatur5717 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-08
I have about a dozen different sites with over a dozen different subnets, all routing fine. To make it simple Ill just refer to areas A, B, and C. A being a branch office, B being our headquarters and C being another branch office. When I have a client connect to the VPN server in area B they cannot ping area A or C. How can I get the client to ping all locations without using the Use remote networks gateway? Can I force the VPN server to advertise networks in other areas?
Our site B includes a Primary domain controller (server 2008), a Cisco ASA 5510 and a VPN server (server 2008. The network is running a\19 subnet.
Site A has a Secondary Domain controller (server 2008), a Cisco ASA 5510 (soon to be replaced with sonicwall). The network is running a\22 subnet.
Site C has a Secondary Domain Controller and a simple router. The network runs a\24 subnet.

The client runs (for testing) Windows 7 and gets a address. The DHCP server at site B assigns this address. When I try to connect to the internet or any other address not on site B I am not able to connect. However when I disable the use remote network default gateway I connect fine until needing to get to site A or B. when I try to ping (a printer on site A) I get nothing, when I tracert it I see the traffic going to the internet instead on the site B router.
