Global VPN over a slow link affecting internet access
We have a remote working using Global VPN client, and when the VPN is connected internet access is dead slow. The user is very remote so the tunnel itself is quite slow and i accept there is bandwidth limitations. That said, Ive made sure ive set the Set Default Route as this Gateway unchecked so that the remote user is using their local gateway route which i can confirm is working. But i think the issue is more related to DNS queries which is happening over the link as the DNS server assigned by the VPN DHCP pool is at the VPN end.
I will need to send some DNS queries over the link (ones intended for the local domain) but ideally other DNS queries would use the locally assigned DNS server for the remote user. Im thinking a dirty hack for this one person would be to throw some hosts entries into the local PC but i cant workout how to set static IP address for this specific client the global VPN client so that i can use a different DNS server.
There might be a better way to do it, any ideas
