Strange behavior with PIA VPN

  • Hi guys.

    I have PIA VPN configured, and using various "whats my IP" sites, it appears as though the internet sees my home network as being behind the PIA VPN server that I am using.

    However, I am currently downloading a linux ISO.  On the pfsense dashboard, my PIA VPN interface is showing 8-12Mbps, and my WAN interface is showing 110-130Mbps.  The actual download itself, on a Windows machine, is showing speeds in line with what pfsense is showing on the WAN interface.

    If I am reading this right, only some of the traffic is passing over the PIA VPN interface, while the majority of the traffic is passing (unencrypted?) over the WAN.

    The ISO download is the only traffic on the network at the moment.

    Any idea what is going on?


  • Anyone?  Whole point of the PIA VPN is to keep my traffic encrypted over my ISP's network.  Clearly this is not happening:

  • ?????????????
