Hello we are a little development startup. We deal with a lot of VPNs to our clients.

What we do:

  1. Connect VPN
  2. Use remote desktop to connect to a client's server
  3. Update/configure our program
  4. Connect to their SQL Server instance on their network (to do configuration for our proprietary program)
  5. Disconnect

There is a minor problem though in that when we connect a VPN, all of the internet traffic from that computer is routed though the VPN. We want to just route through to the local network. It's not a big issue, but it's a bit of a privacy concern and is annoying.

How can we do this in Windows 7 Professional?

On the Networking Tab of the VPN Properties, highlight Internet Protocol TCP/IP properties, click advanced, and uncheck "Use default gateway on remote network".

This also has to be configured and supported by the VPN server itself or it won't work.

The whole process depends on the fact if your VPN server allows split tunnelling or not – pun Jul 17 '15 at 11:31
