Use split tunneling in the server. That way, even if the users use p2p or anything, it will go locally and will not come through vpn. In any case, when you configure vpn you define explicitly what traffic is permitted. Rest is denied.

you do not need to worry about client/server. Split tunnelling will take care. Just follow the link and enable the options.
