The concept of a VPN is as if you took your machine there and plugged in at work. What you described is proper. To fix this, VPN would be declared broken and we'd call VPN insecure which we don't want to do.
I've just started using an IP VPN and need help with configuring it with ZoneAlarm. I'm a bit of newbie when it comes to networking so please bear with me...
I want all internet activity going through the VPN and if the VPN disconnects then nothing will have internet access, not even through my standard internet connection.
Currently, connecting to the VPN doesn't prompt ZoneAlarm's "I've found a new network" message, so I'm a little lost with setting all those fiddly TCP IP, blah de blah...
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
