Openvpn and the route table it creates

Post by azerty1983 » Tue Sep 12, 2017 1:52 am

Hi everyone, I have a question concerning the route table created by openvpn.

I understand the routes pointed by the yellow fingers.

The first route has a 35 metric but it will be discarded because it's not specific enough compared to the yellow ones. So it will never be used.

But I don't understand the route pointed by the white one.

My question is : Why does it point to my local gateway ? What is that route for ?

I don't want anyone to know what I am doing on the local network.
The dns has been replaced by the google's one. I want everything through the vpn : no one on the local network must know which URL or ip I visit.

I have a machine on the local network which I connect to using rdp. Adding a permanent route to that computer and removing any route to the local gateway is tempting.

172.20.0.1 is my oval gateway.
10.9.0.1 is the remote gateway.
68.x.x.x is the public ip of the vpn server.

Everything with the 281 metric is related to a local loop back on the machine.
