Any way to bypass VPN selectively?

    First of all, I want to say that I have found this thread to be very helpful.

    I just set up an ASUS RT-N66U and loaded up Tomato Shibby firmware, partially to run my entire network through a VPN (PIA).

    I'm running into a related issue here. When I tried to log into my Netflix, it is being blocked because of my VPN Access. These bans have started going into effect over the last few months.

    I currently have an exception as described in Post #90 to allow our primary media device to be excluded from the VPN tunneling.

    I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to take it a step further, and exclude VPN traffic based on the destination site; such that all Netflix (Hulu, etc) traffic is excluded from the VPN?

    I see several posts about how to make sure Netflix is always included, but not the reverse.

    Something similar was asked at post #189, but I did not see a reply that answered that particular question.

    Thanks in advance!

    You can use the method undelrined in with the change that you set the mark to 1.

    Here is an up to date version for shibby tomato :

    In the tomato GUI:

    Basic >Network
    Create a second bridge br1. IP Enable DHCP. Save.

    Advanced >VLAN
    VLAN #3 bridge to LAN1 (br1). Put at least one port (Port 4) on VLAN #3. Save.

    Advanced >Virtual Wirless
    Set guest wl0.1 (and wl1.1 for 5GHz) to LAN1(br1). Set security WPA2 and password. Save.

    VPN Tunneling > OpenVPN Client >Client 1 >Basic
    Enable Start with WAN. Enter your VPN details. Enable Create NAT on tunnel. Save.

    VPN Tunneling > OpenVPN Client >Client 1 >Advanced
    (EDIT) Accept DNS configuration :Strict. Save.
    Ignore Redirect Gateway (route-nopull) : Enabled. (That is what I did not do, but I could not find this in forum...)

    VPN Tunneling > OpenVPN Client >Client 1 >Routing Policy
    Redirect through VPN : Enabled
    From Source IP : ENABLED

    Then Restart the VPN at least.
