    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.

    Closer than you think.

    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.
