Please explain why in windows workgroup settings, my windows configured  vpn clients  use the remote broadband connection even when:
i configured the vpn clients to use their own internet connection. this strangles the bandwidth at the tunnel.

my clients different speeds based on their broadband provider speed.
1) first client: 5u 30d   =  7 times faster at the tunnel
2) second client: 1-1.8u 3-12d = 7 times slower

behind  the authenticating vpn router server: my shared folder to be accessed via vpn: windows 7 shared folder:
5u 30d
all the while using the remote vpn connection as shown when speed is checked.

Hey!

Basically, that's the way VPN works. When You connect to the Virtual Private Network it works like as you were physically there.
But there is a way to use your own connection. Right click on your VPN connection and choose properties. Go to the "Networking" tab and select "TCP/IP", click "Properties". Click "Advanced" and uncheck the box "use default gateway on remote host". Then disconnect and reconnect to the VPN again.

Keep in mind that this can cause some other connectivity problems. It depends on what kind of network you're connecting to, and what network resources you're trying to access.

Give it a go. If it does not work as needed, check the box again.

Best regards, Jernej
