I try to connect to the network from outside the office to a Sonicwall NSA 3500 using the Sonicwall Global VPN Client (v4.2.0305). I get a connection waring saying "Traffic is only allowed to secured peers". If I hit yes it connects me to the network and I am able to get to my network drives and devices. The problem is that internet stops working such as webpages, emails, etc. If I hit "no" I am disconnected.

Yep. It's requiring all traffic to go through the sonicwall so you can't get to local resources. Sometimes called default/forced remote gateway.

So there are two ways to go about this. One: allow traffic from the VPN zone to the wan so you can talk to the Internet through the VPN. Two: don't force remote gateway so you can access local resources and direct access to the Internet. Only vpn traffic goes through the VPN.

This comes for normal sonicwall vpn client when the VPN connection policy allows
only traffic to the gateway. The problem is the network administrator who configured the Sonicwall NSA 3500, he did it in a not so correct way.  You cannot do anything here.

Ask your network admin to enable/configure split tunneling in the gateway. It will be solved.
Should be a less than 5 min job. : )

FYI, the settings is in WAN GroupVPN Policy-->advance-->set default gateway to 0.0.0.0--> Client tab---> Set Allow Connections to - Split Tunnels--->Set Default Route as this Gateway--->click ok.

If you are running sonicOS enhanced, the settings are different.

That's it.

Best,
