And your getting at what?  How does this relate to the OPs problem?

You seen to have a little knowledge of ip.  So why not pass the proper
routing info to the vpn client.  If perhaps it was configured right the
first time there would not be no what do I do now.

Windows related servvce problem?  Slap a dhcp helper to pass the
connections to the main dhcp server then to the wins server.  It can be
any Unix variant dhcp helper and server.  There's two words for this:
'Network Aware".  That's all it takes.

Don't make so complicated you can't control.
