Description

Hello,

I successful setup a vpn connection from Win7 to strongSwan 5.2.1 with machine certificates (based on Win7SingleConfig). After reading ForwardingAndSplitTunneling I'm wondering if the advice "But to
make this actually work on the client the Use default gateway on remote network option in the Advanced TCP/IP settings of
the VPN connection has to be enabled"
is correct? I narrowed down the subnet with leftsubnet=172.31.0.0/16 but had to disable the aforementioned option in order to route 172.31.0.0/16 traffic through the tunnel and everything else directly to the net.
Am I missing something or should the wiki entry read "disabled" here?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Marcel,

Yes, seems that the description is not correct. To support split-tunneling, the option has to be unchecked, that is, the default gateway option must be set only in non-splitting setups. I've fixed the description in the ForwardingAndSplitTunneling.

Martin
