I'm having trouble combining the use of a pptp VPN connection to a remote host while keeping connectivety to our local network. I have found the tcp/ip option to not use a remote gateway and this solves the problem for about 50%. I do have access to anything within the 192.168.x.x range while connected to the remote network. (shares, mail, sql, etc) However we have an ip telephony solution sitting on a different subnet (10.200.x.x) and this is unaccessible while connected with the remote host. I have been Googling for results for well over 2 hours now but unfortanely have found no awnser to my dilemma yet. This will party be due to the fact i don't quite know what to google for. I have read things about changing the routing table with wich im slightly familliar but i have no idea what would need to be routed where and the context i should view this in. I am quite new to the VPN connectivity world so please excuse any stupidities in my questioning.

Software/Hardware used:
Windows XP SP3 client in Windows 2003 domain.

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

Sounds like split-tunneling is not enabled. This is a setting where you can be connected to VPN and access services on the local LAN simultaneously. Many VPN solutions are configured to deny split-tunneling.

Since your system has an IP address on the VPN network and the local network, the default routing is also confused. You could set a route to the 10.200.x.x network using the default router for the 192.168.x.x network (if that is where the routing to the 10.200.x.x network happens).
