VPN Connection from within the Network to another Network

I have now and then to run windows VPN (the VPN that comes with windows 7) from within our network to a different Network, but when I get connected to the other Network, I will not be able to use any Application within our network, such as Outlook, or RDP to any of our computers in the Network.

Any work around this issue, in order to be able to connect to both networks without interruption?

Thank you

Sounds like you want to enable split-tunneling, so that you can still use your default gateway for any traffic that is not destined for the VPN.  However, this wouldn't be necessary if the resources you're trying to reach are on the same subnet as your machine (because in that case the default gateway is not needed).   I don't know your network setup, but this is definitely worth a try.  To adjust, go to the VPN properties > IPv4 properties > Advanced > IP Settings tab > uncheck "Use default gateway on remote network".

Step 2: Configure the VPN Client TCP/IP Properties
To disable the Use Default Gateway on Remote Network setting in the VPN dial-up connection item on the client computer: 1.Double-click My Computer, and then click the Network and Dial-up Connections link.
2.Right-click the VPN connection that you want to change, and then click Properties.
3.Click the Networking tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the Components checked are used by this connection list, and then click Properties.
4.Click Advanced, and then click to clear the Use default gateway on remote network check box.
5.Click OK, click OK, and then click OK.
