    Default Connect VPN while traveling going around Geo restrictions

    Hi,
    I struggle to find out how I would config my OpenVPN server and client to allow ALL traffic from my computer and android device to "bounce" on my Untangle server in my home country.

    I want Netflix, Amazon and other streaming services to believe I am actually at home even though I am in another country. Basically presenting my home IP-address and route the traffic back and forth.

    How do I achieve that?

    I guess OpenVPN is the right path?

    P-M

    OpenVPN can do that yes, assuming you can connect, and you've enabled the full tunnel feature for the OpenVPN group your client is attached to.

    I created two profiles, one is a full-tunnel and the other is a split-tunnel.

    I use the full-tunnel when I need to bypass censorship and web filters and such applied on the local network I am currently connected to. This also allows me to manage my home network.

    The split-tunnel is for when I just need to access my home network with internet traffic routed through the local ISP.

    Though, I haven't used it as a way to bypass geo-locked content. I have applied a similar concept the other way around.... I have a DD-WRT router at home that is behind the secondary LAN port of Untangle which is permanently connected via OpenVPN to a US VPN provider. This router's LAN side is assigned to a specific VLAN/SSID and anything connected to that VLAN/SSID will be able to present itself as being located in the US. Works with Netflix and live TV.

    Why would you do that? You have the TunnelVPN app on Untangle that's designed for that, and it's nice rules structure for matching what goes through it...

    Also, if your purpose is to get around GEO filtration, direct use of that 3rd party VPN on your device is probably going to serve you better then bouncing to it via your house. Yes, you can do this... but I'm confused as to why, unless you need access to stuff at home while also using the VPN?
