OpenVPN client and adding route

Hello,

I am using the SOHO and have configured a static route to my 4G modem:

I am connecting to an OpenVPN provider using the OpenVPN client on a Windows 7 machine that is connected via ethernet to the SOHO. I would also like to be able to connect to the 4G modem router config when on the VPN.

When I try to add the route, it adds it, but I am not able to connect to the 4G modem’s config page. Here is the output in the OpenVPN log that displays the route being added:
C:\Windows\system32\route.exe ADD 10.0.2.0 MASK 255.255.255.0 10.127.10.43
ROUTE: CreateIpForwardEntry succeeded with dwForwardMetric1=20 and dwForwardType=4

Do I need to modify what I put in the OpenVPN config to get it to work in conjunction with the SOHO?

Thanks!

Hi,

Just need to verify are you able to connect to your 4G modem router config page when you are not connected to VPN ? If yes, then you may need to get advice from OpenVPN support on how to enable “Split Tunneling/Routing” for OpenVPN client.

Hello,

yes, it works correctly when not using the VPN. I will check into that feature and report back.

thanks!
