Subject: VPN Client and Local Service

Dear all,
We have a LAN and use VPN to connect to remote Exchange server in back
office (we are the client side).  As soon as the connection setup, the local
computer will get one IP address assigned by the remote server. Afterwards
all the local computers could not print because the IP address of the local
printer is in different range.
Both our IT admins in two offices said this problem is not possible to
solve, which means if we need to send and receive email, we need to build up
the VPN connection and if we need to print we have to disconnect. As for our
normal users the situation is really ridiculous. Is it really so difficult
to solve the problem?
