Can't connect some sites thru VPN

I currently connect to my office thru a vpn. i am traveling thru countries that monitor web traffic and thus need to use the vpn to look at sites that i don't want others to see. On my coworker's PC, I can visit any site while connected to the vpn and there is no problem. on my mac however, i cannot visit some sites. why would that be? would it be a problem on the vpn management side or on my mac? thanks for any help.

Are they sites with ActiveX controls? If so you're never going to view them on a Mac,... or at least not until some miracle happens.

You can drag the VPN connection to the top of the interface list in Network Preferences and OS X should attempt to use the VPN before the ethernet interface for finding web sites.

try another browser if safari can't handle it.
