I connect to a VPN from home to work. I use Mac OSX 10.6.x's built-in Cisco support to connect. There are no non-default settings after authentication (eg to do with routing).

How does network traffic get routed? As in, if I browse to a site, does the browser try to reach the site via the VPN connection?

How can I configure things such that only some traffic uses the VPN - as in, there are only a few addresses and IPs that I would want to go to the VPN for; the rest I'd want to use my own internet connection for.

You should config you vpn server's split net. So only the IPs in your split nets would route through vpn gateway.

Is that something that I can do as a client, with no admin-rights to the server-end? – Peter Mounce Mar 29 '12 at 15:05
