Heres my situation, client PC is on the same network as the printer to start with: 192.168.1.X Thats fine and printing is fine, however our clients are required to connect to the VPN using the installed cisco client - this creates a virtual adapter and now the PC is connected to a 10.0.0.X IP range and can no longer see the printer, thus my problem!

If I do an IPCONFIG/ALL the PC still has the 192.168.1.X address but it I can't ping anything on it.

Is it possible to use both IP ranges at the same time?

You pretty much have to change the policy, that's the only way you are going to get this to work. – Scott Lundberg Jul 12 '10 at 14:04

Set the default gateway to a system that is homed on both networks, and it will route packets accordingly.

Can you please explain what you mean by this? Thanks – John Jul 12 '10 at 10:33
Which part? The "default gateway", the "homed", or the "both networks"? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 12 '10 at 10:48
"homed on both networks" in particular... – John Jul 12 '10 at 12:47
To be "homed" on a network means to have an interface that has been assigned an address on that network, and to be connected to other systems that are also homed on that network. – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jul 12 '10 at 12:57

this link show you how to have your machine route through both subnets
