    Split tunnelling on RT AC86U 386.2.2 Merlin

    Alfsu, excellent. Your config works perfectly. Does exactly what it says on the tin, and it's logical, which is what I wanted. Thanks.

    Split tunnelling on RT AC86U 386.2.2 Merlin

    Not the case at all. I tried ALL ways. Nothing works. I configured as per RMerlin and Xentrk examples, and followed YOUR advice (Although I still don't understand it, if ALL traffic is routed through the WAN by default and WAN rules are actioned first, as per the documentation you say I'm unable...

    Split tunnelling on RT AC86U 386.2.2 Merlin

    Hi Alfsu. Thanks for the reply. The clients I want to add to be routed through the tunnel: I can just use simple ip address ie 192.168.1.10 etc? Or must be in cidr format? I ask because I'm fairly sure I tried the config you're suggesting, but I can't be sure because I've tried so many.

    Split tunnelling on RT AC86U 386.2.2 Merlin

    So, one way or another, I got split tunnelling working, I think. If I set the whole subnet to use the vpn, can I simply point individual ip addresses at the wan (ie: 192.168.1.100). Yes? I've still had to go back to stock Asus firmware, as I found that although split tunnelling was working, ie...

    Split tunnelling on RT AC86U 386.2.2 Merlin

    Well, I gotta be honest, I found pretty much every explanation here confusing in one way or another, very much like the actual Merlin configuration page. You all obviously understand it easily and very well, so it must be me. I can see the logic in pointing a complete subnet at the vpn, and...

    Split tunnelling on RT AC86U 386.2.2 Merlin

    Hi RMerlin. Now we're off on another thread. I recently upgraded from an RT-N66U to an RT AC86U, on advice from Nordvpn support, because it didn't support 2.4 and would not connect to a lot of their UK servers which they were upgrading to 2.4, and when it DID connect, VPN was slow, 4-5mbps...

    Split tunnelling on RT AC86U 386.2.2 Merlin

    So if I simply set policy rules ON, all traffic goes to the WAN, ignoring the VPN completely. Then I just have to explicitly send stuff down the VPN, address by address. Is that correct? No other config required? And Tech 9's configuration? The simplest configuration: Network 192.168.1.1/24...

    Split tunnelling on RT AC86U 386.2.2 Merlin

    Which bit of my understanding is correct? This bit......"So does split tunnel only work if ALL traffic is forced down the vpn, and then statements for exceptions to the WAN?" That would make sense, and explain why I couldn't get it working... I did the other things you suggested....checked...

    Split tunnelling on RT AC86U 386.2.2 Merlin

    Hi Colin. No, I'm not in the UK at the moment. Wish I was. Sorry for the confusion. Currently I'm running Asus stock firmware, Nord and Express work perfectly. I see my address in the UK when they're on. With Merlin when I tried it, my address stayed firmly in my country of origin. It's...

    Split tunnelling on RT AC86U 386.2.2 Merlin

    One more question. I notice Merlin is using OpenVpn 2.5. I spoke to Express, who currently only support 2.4. Is 2.5 backward compatible? I read what I could find, it looks like there may be problems running 2.5 against 2.3, but it IS compatible with 2.4. Is that correct? Anyone have any...

    Split tunnelling on RT AC86U 386.2.2 Merlin

    OK. So I've read all that. I went back to Asus OS 9.0.0.4.386_41994 firmware to confirm what I DID know. Nord and Express work as expected, but obvioulsy no split tunnel. From what I've read from replies here: If I configure Nord or Express, and choose either "Force all traffic down vpn "yes"...

    Split tunnelling on RT AC86U 386.2.2 Merlin

    OK, so now I'm totally confused. I started off trying to use policy rules, with little success, but now I can't even get a vpn to work, express vpn or Nord vpn. I leave all config settings at default, I load my config files, I tell it to force internet traffic down the vpn, it doesn't work. At...

    RT AC86U 2900 firmware update.

    Hi Bbunge. Thanks for that, but I think I'll give Merlin a go. I really want to seperate my traffic between vpn and non vpn.

    RT AC86U 2900 firmware update.

    Thanks Colin. You may be "Part of the Furniture" but you're also a diamond here
