Sometimes, it helps to route just some traffic over a VPN. It doesn’t make sense to add a lot of latency to your vpn if you don’t need it. So here’s the magic. This only works if you have your own OpenVPN server. (See my post on using Amazon’s free tier to make it happen).
Simply comment out the redirect-gateway def1 statement in your openvpn server.conf file.
and on the client, just put in the following line:
route 18.104.22.168 255.255.255.0 vpn_gateway
Obviously this routes only the 22.214.171.124 subnet out the vpn connection and everything out your non vpn connection. It’s really quite handy. This is called Split-Tunneling by the way.
I know this is going to help many people. If you could, stumble up my posts and if someone out there could submit my posts to reddit it would really be great. Apparently, reddit assumes that if you’re posting something daily, they consider you a spammer. Which is kind of ridiculous considering I’ve never spammed, but shared information. I just know the information on this blog would be huge to more people. So if you’re a redditor, I would really appreciate it if you would help to submit my posts to reddit for me.
Thanks in advance.
