We have a problem we run into regularly with VPN users.

For historical reasons our LAN addresse range is - 254.

Unfortunately many hotels, coffee-shop wifi networks, etc also give out addresses in the range - 254.

When a remote user gets an address within this range, VPN access is not possible. Since the same range of addresses exists at both ends of the VPN, the remote computer will default to its local LAN and traffic is not routed to our network.

Other than changing the range of our LAN addresses, is there anything we can do within Kerio Connect to mitigate this?

That is a common problem. A less drastic approach if the remote users need to conect to a couple of servers of your local LAN (rather than changing the whole LAN range=, can be to assign a second IP address to the servers of your lan that the remote users need to connect with other range (for e.g. 10.10.0.x).

Also need to be done in the LAN interface of the Control Box).

Can this be achieved with custom routing? Granted not all public wifi addressing schemes are going to be the same and it would probably depend on some static server addresses. Perhaps someone with a better understanding than I could expand, please?
