I am currently making a vpn where my internet traffic isn't routed through the VPN. This is due to the limited bandwidth on the server side, and only wanting to be access services hosted that end rather than encrypting all of the traffic.

Currently I am trying to set this up on a Linux (OpenVPN Client), Windows (OpenVPN Client), and Mac (Viscosity). The Windows client is obeying the routes as per the server, and in Linux there is a checkout that says "Use this connection only for resources on its network" which makes it work as expected. Is there anything similar in Viscosity?

Viscosity Version is 1.8.4.

Hi paubar,

It should simply be a matter of ensuring the "All Traffic" option is set to "Automatic (Set by Server)", which can be found under the Networking tab when editing your connection in Viscosity. This is also the default value.
