You can enable this, but it is turned off by default as It's a potential
security risk for a possibly unprotected remote client to be connected
to the internet directly while having a pipe open to the domain, and
thus providing a potential channel for malware/hackers.
The User -should- access the internet via the VPN Connection.

To enable the User to have concurrent VPN and Local Internet:

    - Right/Alternate Mouse-Click on Network Places
        - Properties
            - Right/Alternate Mouse-Click on VPN connection
                - Properties
                    - Networking
                        - Protocol (TCP/IP)
                            - Advanced
                                - De-select
                            "Use default gateway on remote host"
