Turn off "Use Default Gateway on Remote Network".  It is under TCP/IP
Properties in the advanced section for your VPN setup.

Otherwise, what is the IP that you are assigned on the LAN and what is the
IP assigned on the VPN connection?  Are they on the same subnet?

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?
