I have never used VPNs before, so please forgive me if this question is stupid:
I have a free trial for an VPN provider and i want to see if it is possible to ONLY route my bittorrent traffic through the VPN, while surfing etc through my usual ISP connection. I can set my bittorrent client to use the VPN providers proxy server, but this proxy server requires me to be logged in to the vpn, too.
So my idea is to log into the VPN (via OpenVPN GUI on Windows 7) and change my config file to bypass the tunneling part. First from what i understood it wasn't possible at all, without changing the server configuration. But then i found this
https://community.openvpn.net/openvpn/w ... ectGateway
telling me to add those lines to my vpn clients config file:
Code: Select all
route 0.0.0.0 192.0.0.0 net_gateway route 220.127.116.11 192.0.0.0 net_gateway route 18.104.22.168 192.0.0.0 net_gateway route 192.0.0.0 192.0.0.0 net_gateway
Now my config file looks like this
Code: Select all
# AzireVPN.com configuration generator # Location: netherlands # Protocol: udp # Port: random # DNS-leak protection: yes client dev tun proto udp remote nl1.ovpn.azirevpn.net 1194 remote nl1.ovpn.azirevpn.net 443 resolv-retry infinite auth-user-pass nobind persist-key persist-tun remote-cert-tls server reneg-sec 0 keepalive 10 60 block-outside-dns mute-replay-warnings explicit-exit-notify 3 cipher AES-256-CBC auth SHA512 tls-version-min 1.2 route 0.0.0.0 192.0.0.0 net_gateway route 22.214.171.124 192.0.0.0 net_gateway route 126.96.36.199 192.0.0.0 net_gateway route 192.0.0.0 192.0.0.0 net_gateway
Theres no error with this new config file, but it doesn't change anything as far as i can tell. Whatismyip still returns the netherland IP from my VPN provider. I expected to see my real, german IP.
Any help would be greatly appreciated
