Running VPN on a VM

Just been doing some testing on running VPN on a VM and on the host OS. The host in this case is Server 2008 x64 and the VM software is Hyper-V and the guest VM is Vista x64.

As expected, the OS running VPN takes on the IP address of the VPN while host or guest will continue to use the original IP that you were previously connected to. Obviously the VPN is running over your original IP to get to the VPN but to the outside world this is the IP that you're using.
