I connect to work's VPN on my laptop. I added a route but the moment my laptop is connected to work's VPN, I can no longer access it from my desktop. Here's the route I added:

route -p add 192.168.1.2 mask 255.255.255.255 192.168.1.7 metric 1

Laptop is 192.168.1.7 and Desktop is 192.168.1.2

Output of Route Print is the following :

split-tunneling is probably disabled on the VPN "server" side. –  TheCleaner Nov 30 '12 at 15:06
    
I'm assuming there isn't a way to bypass that to enable the desired behavior above. Correct? –  Kingamoon Nov 30 '12 at 15:17

split-tunneling is probably disabled on the VPN "server" side. You can't bypass that on the client side, it would need to be changed on the VPN "server" itself, either for you or the whole group/company.

Check with whoever administers the VPN itself.
