Yeah read it. Connecting to a VPN doesn’t mean that the gateway should reside in VPN.

Well, it depends.


As KiltedTim said, it is quite possible that the security settings of the VPN are preventing the access.


You may want to click the "Advanced..." button and see if the box for "Send all traffic over VPN connection" is checked or not. I believe the default is for it to be checked, and maybe you want to uncheck it.
