You likely need to have your system use the local gateway rather than the one on the remote system Right click on the connection icon and click Properties. Click the Networking Tab and click on TCP/IP V4 to select and then click Properties. Click Advanced and UNCHECK "Use default gateway on remote system"

You can also have issues if the network on the remote system and on the local system are the same. Very common when admins leave default network on devices like 192.168.0.X or 192.168.1.X
