I Can't get to the Internet whilst on a VPN ?

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

Check if you have some proxy or stateful firewall enabled

=========================
It is also possible that split-tunneling is not enabled, or that the routing does not permit you to use the same internet gateway on the VPN network that other local users can use. This is a typical security measure.

Alessandro is right, it depends on the security measures implemented. I can get on the internet while on my company’s VPN, but I am subject to the same site restrictions as I am when I am at work on the intranet there.

What is your VPN make and model. There are a lot of features that will fix this; i.e URL rewriting, split-tunneling, Access Lists, etc. Just depends on how you want it setup.

    hat is happening is your computer is also tunneling internet requests to the remote VPN computer. It essentially becomes your default gateway. Depending on how things are configured, you may not be able to share the remote Internet connection, and thus everything is blocked. There is a setting to fix this. Go to My Network Places --> view Network Connections --> Right click on [Your Virtual Private Network connection] --> Properties --> Networking Tab --> Choose Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) --> Properties Button --> Advanced Button --> General Tab --> UNCHECK "Use Default Gateway on Remote Network". Click OK until you're out of the connection properties. Re-connect to your VPN. You should now be able to access both the Internet and your VPN network at the same time!
