Route selective traffic through OpenVPN but not firewall generated traffic

  • Hello,

    I'm created an OpenVPN client that I will use to direct selective traffic through.  I have been able to create firewall rules and am able to select this interfaces gateway and that traffic is indeed sent through the OpenVPN tunnel - so this works great.

    My problem is that OpenVPN now directs all traffic from the firewall itself through this tunnel also.  So if I run a process on the firewall like ping it goes through the tunnel.  How do I stop this? I don't see any obvious way to make the "default" route the highest priority again

    default          y.y.y.y (Local Cable) UGS        em1

    On your vpn client connection check/uncheck pull routes.. So it does not set it as the default route.

  • Oh that did it..thanks.  I thought that would have broken my policy based routing as well but it seems to still work.
