Internet and VPN settings (IE 6.0)
This might be really obvious, or just impossible. We have a user who works from home. She has a broadband connection, and she has a VPN session that she uses to connect to us, after which she can open Outlook to retrieve her work email, etc. But, when she is VPN'd in, and reading her work email, if she receives any sort of web hyperlink, when she clicks it she gets "Page can not be found" because the settings in IE on her home PC do not point to our company proxy server (as they should if you were trying to reach the Internet internally from our company. Instead, they point to her broadband provider. We can not change the settings in IE because she wouldn't be able to access her broadband network, and thus wouldn't be able to even work from home. Is there any way for her to access the web when VPN'd in?
