Question PPTP connection disables local internet connection

Hi, I'm a sys admin and I'm using a PPTP VPN server at home to be able to connect to my home servers easily from office.

The thing is that I'm being able to connect to it from office, but after it gets connected, I become unable to browse the internet. I can ping local (office) machines but can't any ping remote (home) machine except the VPN server.

What do I have to do in order to be able to browse the internet using the local(office) connection and just have access to my home servers?

(I don't want users from the office to be able to find my home computers)

You should set default route to internet gateway and set separate networks to vpn gateway. Now your default route points to vpn gateway after you gets connected.
