I've got some trouble witht the route-all settings. Even when I set "All Traffic" to "Automatic (Set by server)" there will be a default route over vpn...

This is not the intended behaviour. My VPN servers do not set this route!

And there is no way to disable it - the other options are fixed VPN route all, or only ipv4 or ipv6 over vpn only.

Diabling pull is not an option - otherwise I'll need to set all routes and settings manually.

I don't have this issue when I use the OpenVPN community client.

Hi Andreas,

Viscosity adds the 0/0 route you are most likely seeing as Windows requires a gateway for Network Location Awareness to work correctly. Please rest assure though that this 0/0 route is disabled and is not being used. You can confirm this by running a couple of trace routes to see where traffic is going.

Open a Command Prompt, then run the following, replacing to a destination that should be routed over your VPN:
Code: Select all
You should see the first hop matches your VPN server. You can press Control+C to cancel the tracert after the first hop is resolved.

Next, run the command again with a location that should not be over your VPN, you should see your ISP as the first hop.

Let us know if you see anything to the contrary.
