Re: VPN Service & ISP IP
eibgrad, thanks for the reply. I've posted on a few other forums with no such luck.
Exactly what I am trying to figure out. When the VPN is connected the routing table shows two default routes. But the default route with my actual router public IP is being ignored.
With the VPN connected I have tried ssh using my ISP IP but I can't even ping it successfully. Which makes me think the packets are getting there but the reply is getting sent out the VPN because of the routing table.
I have a dyndns.org account and I am using it as you stated, it will only update changes on eth1 (WAN).
The VPN server sends a PUSH command that sets up the routing:
PUSH: Received control message: 'PUSH_REPLY,dhcp-option DNS 184.108.40.206,dhcp-option DNS 220.127.116.11,redirect-gateway def1,route 10.99.1.1,topology net30,ping 10,ping-restart 160,ifconfig 10.99.1.62 10.99.1.61'
I believe the
redirect-gateway def1 is what is overriding the my ISP default route.
The only problem is I don't know what to do to it get around this......
