OpenVPN traffic NOT routed through VPN tunnel still being detected by sites as coming from a proxy or VPN.
First of all let me thank you for taking the time to help.
Here is my basic setup. I am using NordVPN.
As can be seen I have three VPN tunnels configured for load balancing. LET ME BE CLEAR VPN WORKS FINE!
I just don’t understand why traffic routed out through the DHCP Gateway are still being seen as coming from a proxy or VPN.
NAT Outbound Rules.
Proof VPN is working and that there is no DNS leaks.
Ok awesome, VPN is working, no DNS leaks. I can watch Netflix through the VPN tunnel proof the DNS settings are correct.
Now lets add a bypass rule.
Check the firewall logs. Sweet NordVPN is now being routed out through the DHCP Gateway.
However, is it really being routed through the DHCP Gateway, lets do a check.
Never thought I would be so happy to see that I was unprotected. Here was where I started doing a happy dance thinking I would soon be relaxing using my VPN tunnel and bypassing site that restricted VPN clients.
Every site I added to my aliases list to bypass VPN tunnels came up as VPN or proxy detected. WTF!!!
Thinking myself wise, having been bitten in the ass too, too many times I remember to do this.
What the heck, I even throw in a reboot on my computer.
Get back on same stuff VPN or proxy detected. WTF!!!

Most sites cannot be policy routed with a simple DNS Alias because they resolve to many addresses and they load content from many different domain names.
No way adding, say,
netflix.comis going to work for you.
