Windows 7 environment. I am new to VPN; just signed up a service (Private Internet Access). Installed, all looks OK, WHOAMI returns an IP address I know is not that of my cable modem. However Network and Sharing Center shows both connections to be in service; VPN and my regular connection. I can right click and disable the VPN connection; cannot do that with the regular connection. Is this OK? How can I be certain that the VPN connection is handling browsing, email, etc?
