Traffic not thru VPN

Postby antirisk443 » Sun Jan 29, 2017 8:27 pm

Running Android 6.0.1 (S6 Edge hardware) with OpenVPN Connect 1.1.17 (Build 76).

I'm running an OpenVPN server on Asus Merlin. Profile has been set up and the client connects to the server over Cell network. I can verify the connection on my router as well.

But the traffic from the cell phone still does not go thru the VPN. When I hit the IPLeak.Net, I only see the public IP from the cell network and nothing about my VPN connection. I'm trying to make all traffic go thru VPN when the connection is on. I'm surprised why this fundamental use case needs a topic in the forum.

What am I missing here? Is OpenVPN Connect a misnomer for something else?

Hello, anybody home? I'm just trying to setup a simple VPN connection to my own server and the phone is connecting successfuly. But the traffic from my cell phone is not going thru VPN.

I really appreciate any help on why this is not working with OpenVPN Connect software.
