Spoofing an IP address using a VPN

I was looking for a way to appear to have a different IP address from the point of view of a remote website. When I remembered a quirk with VPNs.
 
When you set up a computer to accept incomming VPN connections, and connect to it, all packets will be routed through it by default. This means that if you navigate to a website without a VPN connection you will appear to have a different IP address to when you navigate to a website with a VPN connection open.
 
Usiually, I would disable this feature, since generally, routing all internet traffic via a VPN is much slower than a direct connection. To disable VPN default gateway routing, hit the VPN conection | properties | Networking | TCP/IP | Settings | use default gateway on remote network.
