|everythig is ok, i can connect fine, i see the local connection. the problem is that i cannot figure out how to route my home pc connection to go out to the internet on the same adapter as the one it comes in. is this even possible? i get assigned a local ip (192.xxx), but i cant seem to figure out this routing |
When connected to your VPN, if it's configured correctly, you get an internal IP from the VPN server. When attempting to surf the web, you should be going out the same way as any internal client does.
The fact that it's not happening, both when you connect remotely via the VPN and locally on the LAN to the VPN server makes me think you have the TCP/IP settings in the DHCP service associated with the VPN configured incorrectly.
That's where I'd start looking.
Without knowing more about your setup, that's all I can tell you. It would be nice to know what you're using for your VPN endpoint. I know it's not a Windows 7 box. I must be a Windows 2000/2003/2008 server or a VPN device.
Some detail might help pinpoint the problem.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
