I am currently running on an Ubuntu 13.04 environment.

I am able to connect just fine to my Office VPN, the only problem I am having now is I don't have internet access once I am connected. There is a little lock symbol next to the internet connection symbol in the top right hand corner by my clock.

I know when I was on a windows machine I was able to VPN and piggie back off the office IP address just fine. Is there a setting I need to change on my Ubuntu machine to do the same?

Thanks, these are the exact settings I am using to successfully VPN into my office network. However, I cannot access internet once I do. – bbullis Jul 9 '13 at 6:52

The option you're looking for is "Use remote gateway for all traffic", although I'm not sure which VPN solution you're using, so I can't give you any more detail.

It's just a configuration options not a software/OS problem. Strike that...

You appear to be referring to this bug.

I setup my VPN using this method. – bbullis Jul 9 '13 at 6:54
