    Hi,

    I'm sure this has been asked before, but I can't find a solution.

    Cisco 837, with pptp enabled so that I can access my local LAN from
    the internet.

    When i connect to the local LAN, I cannot access local resources AND
    surf the itnernet at the same time.

    The only way I can do this is to untick the "use default gateway"
    option on the Windows PPTP connection, and then manually add a route
    using:

    route add 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 <VPN ip address>

    Is there any way within the IOS config to configure this setup?

    Many thanks,



    Jim

    Hi all,

    Serry, I've rephrased my question.

    Cisco 837, being used as a pptp VPN. The router is 192.168.1.1, the
    LAN is 192.168.1.0/24.

    When I connect to the VPN using a standard Windows VPN connection, I
    cannot access resouces on the VPN subnet AND surf the internet at the
    same time.

    The only way I can do this is to untick the "use default gateway"
    option on the Windows PPTP connection, and then manually add a route
    using:

    route add 192.168.1.0 mask 255.255.255.0 <VPN ip address>

    Is there any way within the IOS config to configure this setup?

    With the box "use default gateway" ticked I can access the VPN subnet
    resources but can't resolve DNS. With the box unticked I can resolve
    DNS but can't access VPN resources (e.g. 192.168.1.150) unless I use
    the ROUTE ADD command.


    Many thanks,



    Jim
