Easiest way is to remove everything from the Client Ip Address Assignment in the VPN section. Then create a DHCP scope for the VPN subnet, and leave the Default Gateway blank. You will need to add a route in the OpenVPN config file that looks like this.

route 192.168.50.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.250.254 1

so that the OpenVPN client will know how to get to the ZeroShell network…and everything else will go out the default gateway assigned to the workstation (or whatever is using the OpenVPN client).

Hope that helps.

Hi,

This may be a question that belongs on the OpenVPN user groups, but I figure I’ll try it here first.
I’m new to Zeroshell as of about three days ago and just got my first OpenVPN connection working to an zeroshell installation! I’m ecstatic!

This is what I’m trying to accomplish.
Route traffic for the “office” network to the office through the VPN and route all traffic bound for another network through the local gateway. I see no purpose in sending users’ P2P traffic or http traffic through our limited office connection.

I hope this is an easy answser that has been addressed many times. I haven’t been able to find anything on it.

Here’s the routing table I get when I connect to the VPN.
