I am running (on Windows 2008) the Remote Access server. I am able to connect to the server from Win7/WinXP clients and access resources on the server. I'm not positive, but I think this sort of server is less than secure, so to provide some extra security I'm using long login names and passwords. And I'm only port-forwarding 1723 for addresses I'd like to be able to access the VPN.
I've played with the PPTP Client (that is CLIENT, not SERVER) to connect to the same server, and have had some success. But, it seems like when I bring-up the PPTP client, that all my Internet traffic on the remote machines now travels through the VPN.
On my Windows 7 and XP VPN clients, I was able to bypass the VPN for Internet traffic by clicking the “Advanced” button for the connection (under IPV4), and un-checking “Use default gateway on remote network.” Is there a way to do something similar in Tomato?
Also, is there anything that tells me how to configure the PPTP Client in Tomato? I kinda winged it and one thing that didn't work was resolving network names. The server name, for instance, is MAIN. When I use the Win7/XP client, I'm able to drop to a command prompt and ping MAIN and the IP address resolves properly. When I use the client built into Tomato, the network name does not resolve.
Any tips/input would be appreciated.
If I should just continue to use the clients built into Windows (for security reasons or something), just let me know.
