Routing specific IP's over VPN

Post by yasar11732 » Tue Feb 09, 2021 8:13 pm


I have setup OpenVPN on my workplace server. I can successfully access webservices and shared folders (windows) over VPN.

One of the programs I use for work need to access a specific server that can only be accessed from my office's IP address. I have determined destination IP address using WireShark program.

Can I setup OpenVPN in a way that, requests going for aforementioned server routed over openVPN?

I don't want to route all my internet traffic over vpn if possible,

Thanks in advance

Yes you can route only network you like and the rest go to your local network.on you client open it and add this one.

route net_gateway
route net_gateway
route net_gateway
route net_gateway

This part is use your local network .if you need route some network over vpn you can do this .

route vpn _gateway

vpn_gateway must be lease it like that so openvpn can add gareway on fly. Just correct ip and subnet you want to route only.
