On the Differentiation between LAN and WAN

Post by puweinan » Tue Jul 23, 2019 2:39 am

Hello:
VPN connects, Cannot correctly distinguish LAN and Internet. Accessing all resources is jumped through VPN. I want it to access the Internet through the local network and the company's LAN through VPN. How to get it. Thank you!

please increase the """metric value""" of the virtual NIC.


Open network adapters choose the " VPN client adapter" Right mouse, choose properties > tcp/ip V4 > properties > advanced > uncheck " automatic metric" > set metric to " 5 " > ok >ok > ok

thank u! but I found that with this setup, all traffic still passes through VPN, without any distinction at all.I found it possible to manually add static routing implementations to local PCs. VPN also has the function of splitting tunnels, but in the open source version, this function can not be used properly.

Go back into network adapters go into the properties of the network adapter you use to connect to your local network. (Ethernet, Wi-Fi).
Look under the advanced and make sure the automatic metric is unchecked and put a "1" for the metric.
Right mouse, choose properties > tcp/ip V4 > properties > advanced > uncheck " automatic metric" > set metric to " 1 " > ok >ok > ok

So the "native network adapter" is "1" and the "VPN virtual adapter" is set to "5".

The metric sets the priority of which network settings to use over the other. The lower the number the higher the priority.

Could you please give us some information in regard to your network setup?
What OS is your "SE-Server" installed on ? Is it physical hardware or Virtual? Are you using "SecureNAT or Local Bridge"? Where is it installed (office, home, Cloud based)?
Are you using the "SE-CLient" or some other client? What OS is it installed on? What is it's location when your trying to connect to the SE-Server?

To verify. You are trying to access your companies network resources at a remote location via the VPN tunnel. However, you would like your standard internet traffic (browsing, searching, youtube, facebook) to use your LOCAL Gateway and NOT go through the VPN tunnel out the REMOTE (company) gateway?

I just want to ask at the moment. That vpn_v4.3 cann't support push routing.

I think if VPN can achieve this function, you can no longer need the client to configure the network adapter. How do u see?

The SE-VPN Server v4.3 DOES support and can achieve push static routing. It will work if set up properly.

Yes, if set up properly you would not need the client to configure the network adapter.
