Re: Avoid creating PPTP default routes
Authored by: halesgarcia on Feb 12, '05 02:37:38PM

Also to the guy wondering why anyone does this, basically if you are connecting to a VPN (Virtual Private Network), internet connect routes all your traffic through the private network by default...

I'm using Panther 10.3.8 and VPN without customizations but I am not getting the default route changed. The default route instead remains the local public network that I was connected to before connecting to my VPN server. Has the behavior of VPN changed since these postings were written?

I'm trying to do what everyone in this thread is trying to avoid, that is, set my default route to my VPN server when I'm on a particular network.

This is still a problem for me with 10.3.8. I used these hints and they worked perfectly for me. You can following these hints and create a file in /etc/ppp/peers with the option defaultroute instead of nodefaultroute. Look at the posts above to see what I mean.
