I connect to a Company VPN to get email and to connect to Remedy software. The VPN is terribly slow with download speed of 1 meg or less. If I diconnect from the VPN I get 20+ Meg download speeds. I have 2 ethernet ports on my computer. How do I direct some of the traffic to the VPN and all other traffic  to the open road for the faster speeds?

The VPN will need to be re-configured for split-tunnelling.

I don't have control of the VPN. I'm a user with a desktop machine with 2 lan ports on the back. I need to use the VPN for mail and to access Remedy (software on work lan). I'd like to get to the internet without going thru the VPN. When I go thru the VPN I get  less than 1 Mbps download speeds. When I disconnect I  get 22+ Mbps. Is there a way to do that

A VPN creates a secure tunnel to the other end.
By default all traffic must go through the tunnel (doesn't matter how many ethernet ports you have).

There are only 2 ways to access anything outside the VPN tunnel:
1. disconnect the tunnel
2. configure the VPN for split-tunnelling; this allows traffic not destined for the other end to use your existing internet connection.

You'll have to talk to your network administrator about your VPN.

Note that most network administrators won't allow split-tunnelling because this can create a 'back door' into their network through your internet connection,
