The problem isn’t sending specific subnets through the tunnel – the problem is that when the VPN comes up it routes ALL traffic through the VPN.

As I said in my post, previously with my own openvpn setup, only specific subnets were pushed via the openvpn server config file to route through the tunnel. This also seems to be the default way openvpn operates unless a specific configuration option is given in the config file.

This is a problem as if you bring up the VPN, all your existing connections will a) go through a much slower VPN tunnel and b) get disconnected since they’re now taking a completely different return path route.
