I have an OpenVPN config that I use on my Windows XP box and on my Ubuntu machine.

When I use it with my Windows machine, I can connect to the VPN and access sites on the VPN, and the internet as normal. When I use it on my Ubuntu box, when connected to the VPN, I can only access internal sites - No internet access at all.

I'm sure there is a way to configure OpenVPN on Ubuntu to allow internet connections, but I can't figure out how.

Found it - The option is under "IPv4 Settings", "Routes", "Use this connection only for resources on its network".

Can't understand what you are suggesting. Where is "IPv4 Settings", "Routes" –  JKAUSHALYA Mar 16 '13 at 20:03
    
@JKAUSHALYA in the Network Manager config, if you're editing the VPN connection, there are tabs for IPv4 and IPv6 settings. In those tabs, there is a button at the bottom labeled "Routes..." which brings up a window with the options referenced in this answer. –  btleffler May 12 at 17:05
