Aah, you use a VPN that fubar's your other connections? That's too bad.
If you often connect to this machine, you might want to consider running
a host-guest VM like VMWare Player. You can go to many sites that will
pre-package blank VMs for you (like "gimmie a 10GB MS Windows XP VM" and
it will give you a config file and a blank VM). Fire it up in VMWare
Player with your XP install CD in your drive and then install XP onto
the VM. Or, just download one of the very fine pre-packaged Linux VMs
right from VMWare's site.

Run your VPN from within the VM and your "real" machine's connections
should stay right as rain. It may be a bit of a production just to open
up an SSH connection, but at least you will be able to connect to your
production box AND do other work at the same time.

Just a thought.
