explanation and how
to enable the split tunnel on your PPTP VPN connection. By the way with
split tunnel disabled (ie. the default) all of your internet traffic

through your home Vista PPTP VPN server. You may need to enable TCP/IP
forwarding however. See the second article for help with that.

PS: for those who are wondering what is the solution, here it is, from
microsoft support site.
To prevent the new default route from being created, select Internet
Protocol (TCP/IP) on the Networking tab for the properties of the VPN
connection. Click Properties, and then click Advanced. In Advanced
TCP/IP Settings, on the General tab, clear the Use default gateway on
remote network check box. This is shown in the following figure.
