I'm running Windows 7 (7100) 64bit.
I have an ADSL2+ internet connection with Orcon.
I can successfully VPN to my work's Cisco PIX using the NCP Secure Entry client (http://www.ncp-e.com/en/solutions/vpn-products/secure-entry-client.html).

In my network connections I now have two connections.  My LAN connection which is connected to my router which is connected to Orcon.  And my virtual connection which is my VPN connection to work over the Orcon connection.

My problem is that even though the VPN connection assigns a default gateway, Windows refuses to use this gateway.  ie while I'm connected to the VPN, any internet traffic still goes out through Orcon.  I would like it to go out through Orcon then through the VPN out through my work's internet.

What am I missing?  Do I need a third party app (like Proxifier) to route data like this?  Is there a way to select which gateway shoul be utilised?

You need to go into your advanced TCP/IP settings and check the box to use the remote gateway for all traffic.

There is a setting in most VPN clients to "use default router on remote gateway" on Windows VPN connection it's under TCP/IP Advanced settings and is on by default.

On Apple OS X it's off by default, and the Cisco client you can't turn it off.

I use NCP at work but can't remember what the default is.

Can you recall where the option is? Can't find it.

Its *on* by default on WinXP / Vista / 7
Click the Connect To (PC icon) down in your systray
Right-click on your VPN --> Properties
Networking Tab --> TCP / IP v4 --> Properties
Advanced
Tick / untick "Use default gateway on remote network".

Now the only question: Is the server setup to do forwarding / sharing?
