I have a similar problem. My small company is 2 home offices connected
across the internet via VPN. Each office has an old 300 mhz standalone Win2k
VPN server (i.e., not part of the domain). The VPN boxes are behind a "cable
modem" and are configured for on-demand dial-up, so they connect to each
other whenever a workstation attempts access to a file or resource on the
LAN in the other office. This seems to work quite well.
I have also created connections in Network Places to connect to each office
when I travel (when staying at a hotel offering broadband). This also works,
but when I connect from the hotel, my AOL IM connection goes dead, and a
number of web sites suddenly become unreachable. It seems like all traffic
is routed to my office once I connect to the VPN.
I tried the solution you suggested (unchecking the option "Use default
gateway on remote network"), but when I do this I cannot access anything on
the VPN at all.
Is there some way I can configure my laptop when working remotely to connect
to the office via VPN and still have access to other internet resources?
