I have a VPN provider that I would like to use for specific sites, as well as specific applications (port ranges), but I would like to have all the remaining traffic bypass the VPN and route normally.
The VPN provider uses OpenVPN. which is installed, along with the relevant luci interface and the required openvpn-openssl package. I have followed their guide as closely as I can, but some modification to the setup was needed due to depreciated options (guide was made for chaos calmer). Nevertheless, I have now made it to the point where (as far as I can tell) the connection is established, and the system.log is reporting no errors.
the guide says that all my internet traffic "should" be running through the VPN at this point, but it just simply isn't.
Q1: how can I verify that the VPN connection is actually working?
Q2: I would like to be able to specify a list of internet domains, as well as a range of ports, that will get routed through the VPN connection. Where do I start?
I would be happy to provide any info you need to help further.
