For organizations using VPN tunnels: If your organization does not allow for split-tunneling (i.e. full tunnel with no exceptions), it is highly recommended to allow this exception or have your users disable their VPN client. Full tunneling can cause latency issues with bandwidth-sensitive content & applications, such as streaming video.
