    All, sorry if this has been addressed or answered but I just tried Merlin because VPN (vyprVPN) speeds were trash (20Mbps of 130 possible dl). Merlin rocks, speed is average 40Mbps now...sweet. So, problem is the feature of Redirect Internet traffic = Policy Rules of Policy Rules (strict) seems to bypass the vpn by default. Am I missing something? Shouldn't I be able to simply state which device (i.e. roku) I want to bypass?

    Cheers,
    J

    The default policy is to NOT use the VPN. You must define rules as to which devices you want to route through the tunnel.

    ok, thanks. I'll just do a subnet to catch everything and then WAN as needed. I expect then it must process WAN first. ...? Cheers!

    WAN rules have the highest priority, yes. So you can create WAN exceptions inside a VPN-routed subnet, yes.
