Jonathan, Thanks for the quick reply. I'm not trying to access the internet through this VPN, I want to access the internet through my own internet connection, and have only the VPN traffic try to use the VPN tunnel. The SmartPass VPN connection resides just fine without interfering with my connection. This is what I'm hoping for. Does this make sense?
