    Hi Everyone,

    I configured my PPTP VPN server on my router. I was able to connect to my home vpn network successfully on my laptop from remote network. After connected to the vpn, I realized that all my traffics pass through my vpn tunnel, which is expected. However, I would like to use local gateway for regular browsing for get a faster speed by unchecking "Use default gateway on remote network" on the VPN adapter settings.

    However, here is the issue. If "Use default gateway on remote network" is unchecked, I can't access my files via vpn. When I tried to access my remote private network, it was passed to my local default gateway which DOES NOT know the destination. Is there some kind of routing I can manually add to the adapter or computer to accomplish my need?

    I would like to uncheck "Use default gateway on remote network" and still be able to access my remote network over VPN. I use both win 7 and win 8 for vpn clients.

    All suggestions are highly appreciated!!!
