OpenVPN and RDP(Win Server 2012R2)

Post by Gena_IT » Wed Jan 22, 2020 11:59 am

Hi guys
There is the following problem:
And so I have an OpenVPN Client purchased from the NordVPN service
I have Windows Server 2012R2 hosted.
I need to configure OpenVPN on a Windows server when I do this and run the OpenVPN client
I am losing access to the server via RDP, how can I get around this problem?
I need to connect to RDP (Win Server) by its static IP address, and already on it go online via OpenVPN

You need Policy Based Routing which Windows does not do.

And how should I be in this situation?
Perhaps there is an alternative?
