I have a DD-WRT attached to an ISP cable router. I have a server connected to the DD-WRT router that I would like to access from the internet. I have a DMZ set up on both routers and I am able to access the server fine un til I activate the VPN. AT that point the VPN stops woking and the access to the server no longer works. See attached diagram for network config.
I am not sure this is suppose to work. Maybe e someone could tell me if it should work and if not suggest a way to get access to the server with the VPN running.
Most of the other options eliminate the need to take the router itself off the VPN. And it's not just the possibility of DNS leaks that's the issue. Suppose you're running transmission on the router and expect it to use the VPN? Now it doesn't because you used PBR.
So yes, PBR solves the problem, but unfortunately it's the equivalent of using a sledgehammer to fix a hangnail.
