VPN Select routing
somebody please offer some help here !
if i followed the setup from ericab http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,29944.0.html
and it works, meaning all traffic is going through the vpn, then how is ericab's solution (reply 21) supposed to work?
yu13096 wanted "only 1 specific internal IP with all the other IPs going through the default gateway."
yet ericab's solution is that all traffic goes through the vpn and then you force one address i.e. netflix to go through the same vpn???
shouldn't it be that all traffic goes through the default gateway and only the netflix address goes through the vpn?
clearly i'm missing something here and i would appreciate some help in setting it so that all traffic goes through the default gateway and individual addresses use the vpn . . . or all traffic goes through the vpn and individual addresses use the default. doesn't matter which one.
Remove "redirect-gateway def1;" from the advanced options on the vpn client config and add "route-nopull;". All your traffic will go to the default gateway and for those ip's you want to go through the vpn, follow the instructions in reply 21.
ok, seems kind of simple, but i'll give it a shot.
thank you thermo !
worked perfectly . . . all i had to do was move the firewall rule to the top and everything just fell into place.
thanks again for taking the time.
