Limit Routing over VPN

VPN routing
When I connect to my client using the built IPSec VPN in Vista, all my traffic is routed through their Internet connection. If I bring up a Google on Firefox, I am using their Internet connection. When I connect to another client using Hamachi, only access to the other Hamachi computers uses Hamachi, Google searches uses my Internet connection.(Vista describes Hamachi as local only). How can I change my routing tables so that when I connect using the IPSec VPN I can use my Internet connection for everything other than my clients IPs like when I use Hamachi?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You likely cannot unless your VPN client software & rules permit “split tunneling”. This is a security measure when you connect to a VPN that the client host cannot be used as an intermediary to pass traffic between an “untrusted” and “trusted” networks.

Another thing to note is that Hamachi is more like a remote control software like remote desktop. You are actually operating a remote computer and also have access to programs on your local computer. The VPN connection is different than remote control.
