i would think that prohibition against split-tunneling would be a corporate
security decision as such IS behaving as configured.

when you want to access the open internet DONT use the VPN.
dont change any of your other boxes as this makes since.

when you want to access the intranet, DO USE the VPN

your cisco VPN client is configured (at the VPN gateway end) not to
allow "split-tunneling" and is working as designed.

contact the administrator of the VPN gateway and ask to have
split-tunneling enabled so that you may access your LAN simultaneously.
