Windows 7 VPN stops network traffic. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    First off, I love the Windows 7 RC and can't wait for the production version to be released.

    Anyway, when I connect to my workplace using the MS VPN client it closes all internet traffic on my local machine.

    As soon as I connect to my workplace I lose the connection to the internet. When I disconnect form the VPN the internet connection is live again.

    My old XP machine (the one I installed Windows 7 over) never had this problem.

    Any ideas how to change the Windows VPN settings to allow other traffic with the VPN connected?

  •   That is standard behavior for a VPN connection. If your XP machine did not work like that, you must have modified the "Use default gateway..." setting.   See KB254231.
