 Subject:  PPTP VPN and internet
 Date:  Fri, 30 Dec 2005 12:19:38 -0500
i have successfully setup a PPTP vpn, i can connect get an ip address,
can see network shares, can open the network shares, everything
locally works great.  ive read through the archives, and googled and
re-read the documentation, but i cant seem to find a solution to my
problem.
whenever i am connected to the vpn, its like my internet gets cut off.
i can no longer access websites, or ping anything.  i have created the
rule as per the setup guide for a PPTP vpn in the documentation that
enables LAN and WAN access to the vpn, so there must be something im
missing or doing wrong. is there another rule i need to create or
something?
the two networks are on different ip schema's, the vpn does have a
subnet of 255.255.255.255, which only allows for 1 usable ip address,
could this be the problem?  all the documentation says is "thats the
way it is, live with it" or something similar regarding the subnet
mask.

any help would be appreciated.
