Hi all, thank you so much for the information on this (now a bit old) thread.

So, as many of you are, I'm trying to selectively go into the VPN when visiting certain IP ranges, in my case Pandora is what I'm after.

I have tried to play with the DD_WRT config, but can't make the
Code:
route 208.85.40.0 255.255.248.0 vpn_gateway

command work; i have tried bothe using and removing the

Code:
route-nopull
route XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX 255.255.255.255 net_gateway

commands, to no avail. (yes, replacing the XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX with the VPN's server address I'm using in the Server IP / Name field.

Also, as to VPN provider's (StrongVPN) instructions, this are the other commands that live in the "Additional Config" window:

Code:
hand-window 30
reneg-sec 0
persist-key
explicit-exit-notify 2
;


Can someone give me some thoughts on what i might be doing wrong? VPN **IS** working, as I have some Devices configured in Policy Based Routing and those work perfectly.

Thank you!!

Many thanks to the OP for this thread which worked perfectly for me after hours trying and failing miserably to get policy based routing to work.

FWIW I had no idea what the "IP address of the configured VPN server you're establishing the tunnel to" was as IME most VPN only supply a web address. For my fellow networking noobs go into cmd and ping the provided server name which will look something like 'ping usa-miami-1.vpnprovider.com' and it will return the IP you need.

In using OPs code (with my VPN server IP not the XXX etc) it seems to expose me entirely.

When I visit IP lookups or https://www.ipvanish.com/check-my-privacy.php it shows my exact location, obviously not what I want.

Removing the code and rebooting gives me back the IP results I expect... but that means Netflix and Hulu don't work.

The four US NordVPN servers that have worked for me with Netflix for months all stopped working with Netflix this week. At present I know of no US NordVPN servers that work with Netflix.

Since PBR is getting more popular these days due to streaming services issues, beware that there is a huge security hole in case Privoxy is used along with PBR.

route-nopull is obsolete and will be deprecated, however it should still work and should prevent your clients from using the VPN.

Reboot the router and check if you are still using the VPN (ipleak.net and dnsleaktest.com).

If so see the troubleshooting section in the guide.
