Help with routing all traffic from my phone, but not any other clients

Post by dimovi » Fri Jul 16, 2021 1:20 pm

I have OpenVPN server on an Asus router and several clients (a few PCs and an Android phone) connected to it without a problem.
All clients connect and work fine, the issue is that I want my Android phone to route ALL traffic through the VPN server, while the PCs only LAN traffic.
From the server option I can easily select all clients to redirect traffic or none, but is there an option on the client side (my Android phone) to route only all of its traffic through the VPN tunnel?

Add this to your client config file:

Code: Select all

redirect-gateway def1

Where is that file? I'm unable to find it using any file browsers. I have a pixel 3A, do I need to do anything special to get to it?

Do you need to root the phone? Where is that file?
