Egress Interface pinning

Post by smackie » Tue Apr 13, 2021 10:03 am


Is there a way to have the OpenVPN Connect client use a particular interface to connect to a server (in this case, OpenVPN Cloud)? I'm experimenting with using OpenVPN Cloud as a backup admin VPN for a few remote sites. For this to work, I need to have the OpenVPN traffic exit the Mac using the directly attached LTE interface, not the default Ethernet.

Any thoughts about how to do this? I could add a static route for the OpenVPN Cloud server prefix but that seems potentially fragile given that it's removing the indirection from the DNS lookup.
