TomatoVPN and ethernet-bridging: route- and redirect-gateway neccessary?

    I'm using TomatoVPN in TAP-Mode and remote clients can communicate with clients in the servers' ip net and vice versa, so far so good.

    But it seems that even though "Direct clients to redirect Internet traffic" is disabled under "VPN Tunneling --> Server --> Server 1 --> Advanced" route-gateway and route-redirect are pushed by the server, because all internet-traffic from the remote clients is routed through the servers' gateway. It eats up a lot of bandwidth.

    Is this behaviour (pushing route-gateway and route-redirect to the clients) correct and neccessary? And if not, how can I disable it?

    Thank you very much in advance :)

    the clients routing table must have a lower metric for the VPN subnet than for their own gateway.

    can you do a
     route print 
    on the windows client and post it ?

    I see you have DHCP checked - I don't use that, I assign a small block of numbers for the VPN clients
    maybe you might like to try that and see waht the results are.

    ... that's it! Now everyhting works as aspected. So does using the routers DHCP require the server to push redirect-gateway? Strange.

    Anyways, thanks a lot!
