RDP via VPN help

Hello gurus.

I'm trying to connect to my work computer, which i can do successfully via VPN, however using VPN forces all other applications on my local machine to connect through my work's network.

Is it at all possible to specify a gateway for just the RDP session, leaving the rest of my PC to function as usual? it would greatly speed up my productivity.

VPN is probably configured to use as default gateway. So all your traffic will go through it.

What is your VPN client?

You might be able to change the use as default gateway in network settings to uncheck use as default gateway for the VPN connection or in the VPN software.

I think your work computer should still be routable even if you don't have the VPN as default gateway.

This is about as far as my VPN networking abilities go so will need a guru if the above tips arent working.

Do you know if the VPN server (assume a router) you're connecting to supports split tunneling? Most Cisco gear does, that's how I've gotten around this problem in the past.

FYI, i'm using just windows 7 default software.

You might be able to change the use as default gateway in network settings to uncheck use as default gateway for the VPN connection or in the VPN software.
that was it, i was thinking that i'd need to specify the network connection to use for the RDP client, but it looks like having separate network address ranges for the local / vpn network was enough.

If you are just using vanilla windows 7/8 VPN,

Right click on the VPN in your network connections list (you can bring it up in Control Panel) goto ->Properties -> Networking -> TCPIP ipv4 -> Properties -> Advanced

Uncheck "Use default gateway on remote network"

Disconnect your vpn if it is connected and reconnect.

Depending on the VPN client, if they configure it to not allow it (which alot of corporates will) then you can't get around it.

What I do is just spin up a VM and then run the VPN/RDP client in the VM window, that way the VPN settings will only affect your VM instance and you main OS is free to do what it feels like.
