MS Win2k8 - VPN Split Tunnelling question

blakogre asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I RDP to my home server.  On occasion I VPN from there to another location.  If I do NOT split tunnel, I typically lose connection, as one would expect.  So I split tunnel to get around this.

However, if the remote location has multiple subnets, I'm pretty much out of luck.

In the past I've set up a VM on the server, and did the VPN connection from that.  VM performance isn't the best though.

I could also RDP to another box on my network from my server, and VPN from that, however -- also, not as ideal from a performance aspect.

Can I do something with my route table to resolve this issue?  I haven't yet tried that, thought I would run it by you guys.

Local network: 172.16.55.x
Remote: 66.x.y.z
RDP from: 206.x.y.z

I usually RDP from set IPs.  If I add a route to the "RDP from": network, with a lower metric, will that resolve the issue?
