I setup my OpenVPN server a few months back using the redirect-gateway def1 option to configure all traffic from a client to traverse the OpenVPN server. Since the server was originally set up we no longer want this behavior and want to only have traffic destined for a specific subnet traverse the OpenVPN connection.
To accomplish I thought all i would need to do is:
1) added the push route statements for the appropriate subnets
2) commented out the push redirect-gateway lines
After changing our configuration and restarting the openvpn daemon I am still getting my default route on clients changed to flow through OpenVPN. I looked around and from what I've read/gathered from other forum posts removing the redirect-gateway line should stop the default route(s) from going out. Am I missing something? How can I stop these routes from going out?
Routes I don't want added:
0.0.0.0 188.8.131.52 192.168.206.5 192.168.206.6 30
184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 192.168.206.5 192.168.206.6 30
Client Received control message (I believe "route 192.168.206.1 is" in the server's PUSH line is the culprit):
