Avoid creating PPTP default routes - Tiger
Authored by: TheOne on May 28, '05 03:11:38AM
Tiger solves this problem I thought this deserved to be at the top level. I found it myself and only then noticed it was listed in a reply to a single posting which shows up as a link on this page.
  1. Internet Connect->Connect menu->Options
  2. uncheck Send all traffic over VPN connection
This stops the default route issue. Go Tigers!

Avoid creating PPTP default routes - Tiger
Authored by: ssexton on Aug 08, '05 06:44:10PM

Silly me, I kept looking under the Internet Connect menu for a "Preferences", and in the Edit Configuration for my connection. At least its there. Now if we can just get Apple to follow their own UI guidelines, we'll be set.

For folks that don't have Tiger, or don't want to do the Perl hack listed above (it's clever, but I wouldn't recommend it), here's the "right" way to get your default route back:

sudo route change default

Change the to your gateway i.p. You'll have to do this manually every time you up the link, but it'll work. If you're not sure what value to put in there, do netstat -r before you up the link and see what is listed for the "default" route (should be the first one listed).
