10.4: Access VPN and Internet at the same time
Authored by: tonyboy on May 16, '05 12:49:35PM
For some, the split-routing option provided in 10.4 (i.e.: unchecking the "Send all network traffic through VPN...") option is good, but not ideal.

What Tiger does when you uncheck this box is that it sends only traffic aimed at the VPN's address through the VPN, and everything else through your ISP's router.

If you need to route more traffic through the VPN, you can do so by using the fix_vpn_script.sh provided in the Panther hint referenced above.

You won't be able to include a call to this script via the /System/Library/SystemConfiguration/Kicker.bundle/Resources/set-hostname file (which is absent in Tiger), but instead, you can create a file named /etc/ppp/ip-up and place the entire script there! Once the script is in place, make sure that you make the file executable by root (chmod a+x /etc/ppp/ip-up).

The next time you connect to the VPN, your routing tables will be expanded by the script you've just installed.

Good luck!

10.4: Access VPN and Internet at the same time

I simply cannot find this option in Tiger! Looked to see if the upgrade I did from Panther was the reason, but no, this option "send all network traffic through VPN" does not exist for me......

Is it hidden? Please could you provide some exact instructions to find it?

The only "options" pane I can find for the VPNs is for "VPN on demand"..

Cheers!!!
