    Hi all.

    I have to use Cisco Anyconnect (on my 2011 iMac 27 / 10.8) to connect to my company's network. The only apps I use for this are X11 and Internet Explorer (through Parallels/XP). It's set up for a split tunnel, so I can connect to my other Macs and printer. However, when I turn on Cisco Anyconnect, my download speed drops from 1.2MByte/sec to 300kByte/sec. :(

    I was thinking of configuring traffic going to my work network to go through the VPN and the WiFi while other local and Internet traffic goes through the wired Ethernet.

    Alternatively, it would work if I could get X11 and Parallels to go through Anyconnect/WiFi while all other apps go straight to the Ethernet port.

    I've seen articles talking about setting up proxy servers and similar. While I know some networking and a good amount of Unix/Linux/OSX, I don't know how I'd set that up.
