Unformatted text preview: Split tunneling From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation , search Split tunneling is a computer networking concept which allows a VPN user to access a public network (e.g., the Internet ) and a local LAN or WAN at the same time, using the same physical network connection. This connection service is usually facilitated through a program such as a VPN client software application. For example, suppose a user utilizes a remote access VPN software client connecting to a corporate network using a hotel wireless network. The user with split tunneling enabled is able to connect to file servers, database servers, mail servers and other servers on the corporate network through the VPN connection. In contrast, when the user connects to Internet resources (Web sites, FTP sites, etc), the connection request doesnt go through the VPN link, it goes through the wireless connection and out the gateway provided by the hotel network.
