Hello,

I have set up a PPTP VPN connection with the Routing and Remote Access role under Server 2008. Everything works fine, but the internet connection is also passed through the VPN connection.

Is there a possibility to enable split tunnels, so that VPN user only have local access to the LAN and use their own connection for WAN access?

Thanks for the replies

On the properties of the vpn link - go to networking, select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) - select properties, select advanced and untick "Use default gateway on remote network"

i would normally turn of the "use default gateway on remote network" this can be found on the client machine.

go into the VPn properties, then netwroking, from there selcted tcp/ip and propeties. If you click advanced you should be able to untick the box (this is enabled by default)

thanks

The above requires that RRAS assigns IPs of the LAN IP subnet, because RAS creates a route to the RAS interface only on each client. If you have a pool if different IP range, the route to LAN has to be set manually on each client while connected.
