OS: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1



OS Version :
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 - 32 bit Build 7600

Dual Network ( VPN & Internet ) terminated over common unmanagd network switch & from switch connected to Windows 7 Ultimate machines.

IP Configuration :
1) Primary Gateway for internet is 192.168.1.1 along with manual metric 5
2) Secondary Gateway for vpn is 10.175.170.1 along with manual metric 10
3) Primary IP for internet
4) Secondary IP for VPN

Route Additions :
Added persistent routes for server access over vpn gateway on windows 7 machine.

Problem : Whenever we configure 2 gateways, both internet & vpn work well till we restart the machine. But after restarting windows 7 machine, internet gateway IP gets removed automatically from machine, so internet fails to connect but only vpn works. When we disconnects the vpn cable from switch, internet starts working but VPN won't. Again if we connect the VPN cable to switch, it disconnects the internet & starts working VPN.

In short, above dual configuration works only till we reboot the windows 7 machine. I need the access of both i.e. VPN & Internet at same time.

Please help.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate SP1



Hello,

I am facing major problem while simaltaneous working over Internet & VPN network.

OS Version :
Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 - 32 bit Build 7600

Dual Network ( Internet modem & VPN router ) cables connected to common unmanagd network switch & from switch cable is connected to Windows 7 Ultimate machines.

IP Configuration on Windows 7 machines :
1) First Gateway IP address 192.168.1.1 along with manual metric 5
2) Second Gateway IP address for vpn is 10.175.170.1 along with manual metric 10
3) First IP address for internet 192.168.1.2 subnet 255.255.255.0
4) Second IP for VPN 10.175.170.2 subnet 255.255.255.0

Static Route Added on local machines :
Added persistent routes for below servers over vpn gateway on windows 7 machine.
10.185.1.13
10.185.1.14

Problem : Whenever we configure 2 gateways, both internet & vpn work well till we restart the machine. But after restarting windows 7 machine, internet gateway IP gets removed automatically from machine, so internet fails to connect but only vpn works. When we disconnects the vpn cable from switch, internet starts working but VPN won't. Again if we connect the VPN cable to switch, it disconnects the internet & starts working VPN.

In short, above dual configuration works only till we reboot the windows 7 machine. I want to access of both i.e. VPN & Internet at same time but able to access only single network.

The above configuration is smoothly working on Windows XP SP3 but on windows 7 wont.

Kindly help me whether there is any solution so that I will get the access of both i.e. Internet & VPN at the same time in Windows 7.

Uncheck the "use default gateway on remote network" option in the VPN connection properties.

Hi,

I have checked the option "Unchecking of use default gateway on remote network" in Network Connections>Internet Options>Connections> but it is only showing broadband connection. VPN connection is not added in that because VPN can work just by configuring the default gateway & ip in IP settings.

In windows xp if we reboot the machine, both gateway ips ( internet & vpn ) remains but in windows 7, it removes the internet default gateway after reboot.

I am not getting any workaround on this issue.
