If you are at a remote location, you would receive their TCP/IP
settings either through DHCP or manually based on their network
configuration. Given that, now you should be able to access the
Internet, and then your corporate VPN (which has different network

My VPN client creates a virtual adapter, which, once authenticated to
the VPN server, receives the appropriate TCP/IP information to then
communicate with the corporate network through the VPN.

However, if you were a Windows application, which TCP/IP information
would you rely on, the real network adapter in or some third party
virtual adapter.

For these reasons, this is why our internal DNS server has to be
manually specified in the TCP/IP settings of the real (non-virtual)
network adapter.
