Could someone help me with the following?
I have set up a VPN using RRAS on Window 2000 Server.
So far I am successful in connecting and accessing my WorkNetwork ressources
without too much problem.
My question is regarding Internet access when connected via the VPN.
I tested different settings from different machines (Dial-Up, ADSL, same
WorkGroup, different workgroup…)
It doesn’t matter which settings I am using I can not access the internet
(WebBrowser, Messenger). I can access our Intranet.
I understand I need to either move to an ISA server as it includes Proxy
facilities or set up a Proxy Server at work. (I have found the necessary
documentation for that)
A colleague has tried the VPN from home, he has got broadband internet
access and was using the same Workgroup than at work.
He said he could still access internet sites outside our domain.
And I do not understand how it can be.
Am I missing something somewhere. We do not have a Proxy server set up as
Can anyone explain that to me and additionally is it safe to keep it like
Any suggestions/comments are welcome

Can’t access the Internet while using VPN
Symptom: after establishing a VPN connection, you may not be able to access
the Internet because the VPN takes over your existing connection and all
traffic to use the VPN default gateway on the remote network. The remote
network may not allow VPN clients to access the Internet via their gateway.
1) If you don’t need to access the entire VPN resources, disable the “use
default gateway on remote network” option in the properties of the VPN
connection. To do that, go to VPN
“Use default gateway on Remote Network”.
2) Edit route table manually if you know how to or check routing page on
this web site.
