Guest LilMissy Posted January 22, 2010 Report Share Posted January 22, 2010 I have a server set up off site, I followed the host set-up on the computer and ports are forwarded and the firewall is configured, I have set up a specific username and password to connect into it aswell. I set up the Client and the connection goes through fine. here comes the problems; The client loses internet browsing capability (internet still works for other purposes), this is fixed by disconecting the vpn and reconnecting. When trying to access the server by name accross the network the BT router tries to resolve the IP and we can't access it. so my questions are a) is there a way to stop Windows 7 on the client from trying to use the vpn for internet browsing (is this as simple as setting the routers ip as the Proxyserver in IE and Firefox?) b) how can i get the computers to communicate via name rather than IP OR can I set the server to have a fixed IP within the VPN?
