What kind of Cisco device, and how is it configured? – Shane Madden Jun 22 '12 at 2:25
I found the answer, there is an option named split tunnel that permit to connect to internet when connected to VPN… – mezgani Jun 22 '12 at 14:53
Right, but that's causing the client to access the internet directly instead of through the VPN - which may not be how you desire to have it function. Both methods are possible. – Shane Madden Jun 22 '12 at 15:48
Correct Shane, i was confused well i still looking for second method to have internet through the VPN – mezgani Jun 24 '12 at 8:08
Sure - in which case, can you provide the information I asked for in my first comment? – Shane Madden Jun 24 '12 at 17:31

Be sure that your Cisco device is setup to have a default route to the other side of the tunnel as well. I'll provide more info when I'm not on my mobile.
