I have a cisco VPN client and I connect through that to a company VPN which works fine. The issue is that once connected I cannot access my mail or access the internet. This is on XP Professional.
Now I tried:
1) open up "Network Connections"
2) right click on the VPN connection (it is connected at this point) and select Properties
3) select "Internet Protocol (TCP / IP)" then properties
4) click "Advanced
I cannot see the "default gateway..." checkbox. I do however have a default gateway text box as per the attached screenshot.
