"Because I am using the Host-Only VM adapter with set IP addresses on both the host and guest I created a work around as follows:

Add a persistent route from the host to the VM using the following command:

route -p add <guest-ip-address> 255.255.255.255 <host-vmnet1-ip-address>

Because this is a more specific route than the 255.255.255.0 route that the VPN software creates, this route is used even when connected to the VPN."
