Default Computing question: VPNs

Hi

I hope it's OK to post this here, but I've received good advice in the past, and I think a lot of members are interested in IT.

I use a VPN to authenticate with my university to send outgoing email. Unfortunatelty, the VPN connection (understandably) interferes with any instant messaging programs I have running, and when I disconnect from the VPN after a brief session the IM disconnects.

I run Windows 2000, and my IM client is Gaim. Can anyone think of a way of preventing the VPN connection from interfering with Gaim? This one has me stumped so far!

Thanks in advance,
Tim.

Hi,

Your VPN client needs to support what is know as "split tunneling". Even if it does.. then the network guys that control the VPN sw/gear need to allow the client to do ST..

Regards...
