I have upgraded from global vpn to ssl vpn due to hippa changes. I can create a connection on the remote site computers, however when I do so I loose internet connection at the remote computer.

I believe this is a gateway or dns issue, but cant figure out how to fix it. Any help would really be great.

Using latest version on netextender, login via port 4433 to our static ip. connection works great, able to run software and print. But can not browse internet, so in this age not usable.

it took reconfiguring the windows 8 computer and installing the net client manually. was complicated and found the answer elsewhere. Tunnel mode, was part of it but no the complete answer, took about 5 steps and 2 more hours of troubleshooting,

thanks anyways

Carlmd's comment (http:#a39659112) was part of your why not share your solution as well as award partial credit to carlmd so that others can benefit from your knowledge?

What needed to be reconfigured in Windows 8 exactly?

When you say "installed...the net client manually" do you mean NetExtender and if so there is no other way to install it other than manually unless you have created an MSI and deployed via GPO, which wouldn't make sense in this scenario.
