    hi guys,

    If I create a VPN connection to an SBS server manually via the New
    Connection Wizard, I can go into the properties of the connector and change
    the advanced TCP/IP properties to untick "Use Default Gateway on Remote
    Network" which stops my client from requesting all data traffic (ie web
    browsing, downloading etc) across the VPN, thus preserving the SBS servers
    internet bandwidth (a real issue with crappy broabband speeds in Australia).

    If I use the SBS VPN connector, there is no access to the TCP/IP networking
    properties for the connector to change the default gateway.

    Anyone know how I can do this? Is it a setting on the SBS server itself
    that needs to be done before creating the VPN connector on the remote machine
    via SBS?

    I think this is hardcoded and cannot be changed. Unticking 'Use default
    gateway' on the VPN connectoid creates a backdoor to your SBS. IMHO, not a
    good idea.

    split tunneling.
