Hi,


I am connected to my office VPN (Cisco Client) and I am able to access all brach office servers and network devices using their internal ips.


I can access internet too.


But when I do tracert to office servers it is being routed through the office network. But when I tracrt to the internet it is routing via my home router. ??


Isn't it supposed to go through my office network.


Any help would be great. Thanks

It's called a split-tunnel VPN.  They route the corporate resources through the VPN and let your internet go out through your local internet connection. Some companies do split tunnel and some tunnel all traffic including internet (full tunnel).


It's nothing you can do. It's how your system admins have it configured.
