  1. Thanks so much for your work on this- it has been a mind bender to try and get what seems like a siplme routing issue figured out.I have a little different scenario that I am trying to do this with- User is connecting from home network using Win 7 and PPTP VPN to Server 2008 RRAS/PDC (joyously located on 192.168.1.x/24)this system worked for users without split tunnel until we added a phone system on the 172.16.1.x/24 network. Here’s the pickle- If the user is VPN connected normally(DG on remote network) then softphone connects fine, as ping can reach 172.16.1.x subnet. However, when split tunneling is configured(which speeds up youtube for said user) then the user machine CAN reach 192.168.1.x(remote) network, but is NOT able to see 172.16.1.x subnet and therefore softphone no workie.I have tried to add a static route on the user machine to no avail(bad arguement), tried setting a static route via AD for the user under the Dial-in tab, and generally hated myself.My question is this- how do I get the user to be able to hop subnets on the VPN while also split tunneling, ideally pushed from server side? It seems like there ought to be some kind of Dynamic routing solution, but static routing would be fine as well. Thanks!
