If it is a windows based vpn (PPTP) you may fix your problem if you
disable "Use default gateway on remote network" setting. Although you
need to modify routing tables to route packets correctly when connected
to the vpn. I have a shell script that I run every time after connecting
to the vpn. It has a bunch or "route xxx" commands in it.
If you are using cisco vpn or simular, this option is vpn specific and
can be configured in the client. Cisco vpn has a firewall in it which
engages every time connection is established. For my setup sysadmins
turned it on and I do not have an option to turn it off. VNC will not be
accessable in this case. I suspect this may be your problem.
