I have a Mac with OS X (10.10.3) from which I need to connect to a remote Windows PC via VPN+RDP. The problem here is that once VPN is up, my internet connection is no longer available. I can only reach a number of machines via VPN but not WAN, which is really annoying. As a workaround I use a VBox machine with Win7 where I set up VPN and RDP. This allows me to access WAN from the host at the same time, but obviously is an overkill.
Is there a more lightweight solution to that?
The VPN connection is set up via native Mac client which is available in Network settings.
It is a PPTP connection.
On the other side there is some kind of Windows Server. Don't know which version or anything else about it. Altering server side configuration is unavailable.
I also tried to disable the
Send all trafic over VPN connection checkbox in VPN settings and to lower its position in
Set service order dialog, but this seems to have no effect.
