I recently bought a new laptop with Windows 7 Professional (32-bit). I installed the Cisco VPN client 5.0 to connect to my employers network. I noticed after I establish the VPN connection I can only access resources within my work subnet. For instance, I cannot open Firefox or IE and hit yahoo.com and my email client cannot connect to my ISP's mail servers. When working remotely, I typically use remote desktop to get to my workstation at the office.
The same client on another computer at home allows me to connect to the VPN and I can get to my personal sites just fine. The difference, as I see it, is one computer is running Windows 7 and the other is running Windows XP. Is there anything I can do do establish a VPN connection and still access my personal websites and mail server on the Windows 7 machine?
