VPN and Default Gateway problems

Hello, I have a computer which is connected to the internet via LAN cable. I have set up VPN server on it. When I connect to it, I receive an IP in the range of 192.168.40.x but I cannot access internet anymore. If I disable my VPN connection's gateway I can access internet, but I want to be able to access internet through that computer's internet. So that for example if that computer is in USA, and I am in Sweden, I want to receive an IP from USA range. But internet stops when I connect.

I binded the IP 192.168.40.1 to the VPN server's LAN, but when I connect my default gateway shows my own IP, ie: 192.168.40.15

How can I fix this ?
I have done this successfully with a router. My router would have a valid IP and 192.168.40.1 assigned to it. It also NATs between the two IPs, and it works properly. But I would like to connect WITHOUT a router.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sometimes split tunneling is disabled in the VPN. For example, my girl friend can't use her printer when connected to her work VPN.

You are missing the point of a VPN. It is supposed to be private.

There are ways to connect past it with a proxy or actually break the private part of the vpn.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

Private or not. I want to enable the person connecting to MY vpn server to be able to use MY internet.

Here's an example: a person is in a country where a certain website is banned. If he/she connects to my VPN, all traffic will be routed through my internet and will be granted full access.

Tell me how to change the default gateway. Or how to do it properly
