I use Cisco VPN Client software on Windows XP to access a client's remote network. However, they force me to use their proxy server to access the Internet. I only use one system on the remote network, but I don't want the rest of my traffic going through the VPN, because it's slow.
Is there a way to modify the routing tables after connecting to the VPN so that I can have access to the sole system through the VPN, but have the remainder of my Internet access still use my own local connection?
I've tried adding routes to the routing table, i.e.
> route add [addressOfRemoteSystem] mask 255.255.255.255 [addressOfNextHop] This "works" (more accurately, this route addition doesn't break anything.)
However, the default gateway is still on the VPN. If I change the default gateway to use my local router:
> route change 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 192.168.2.2 then all network access breaks until I disconnect from the VPN, thus resetting the routing table to the way it was before connecting to the VPN.
