    Router: Asus AC68U
    FW: 384.11.2
    VPN Server: OpenVPN, Server 1

    Settings, under Basic configuration
    Client will use VPN to access: LAN only is selected

    Checking this configuration with wireshark on the client side shows that ALL internet traffic is routed through the VPN server, not only local access.

    Is this a known bug?
    Did someone manage to make it work?

    Thank you,

    What do you get if you select Internet Only? Do you fail to connect to the Internet?

    I’ve forgotten how to use Wireshark so I can’t replicate. I use Diversion and Skynet, and, if I have LAN Only set, Whatsmyip.org gives me the expected result: NOT my home IP address; however, I can see that there are no ads, so somehow Diversion is processing the data.

    Nevertheless, on Internet Only, I cannot access the Internet. I have to se it to Both to get the Internet.

    And welcome to the forum
