7800VDOX VPN for specific devices

Post by mattspace » Tue Jul 12, 2016 8:21 am

Hi,

I was wondering if it's possible to configure the VPN on the VDOX such that certain devices on my network will be routed to my VPN provider (rather than having the VPN software running on the devices themselves), whereas others, XBOX for example, just go straight out.

Is there a way to assign it via MAC or giving devices fixed IP addresses?

Secondly, how does the VDOX handle interruptions to an IP-SEC/L2TP connection? Can it be configured to reconnect automatically, and block traffic when it's down?

My goal is to not have to have my workstation involved in the VPN process.

Any pointers would be appreciated. Thanks.

You won't be able to route one device through the tunnel and others through your normal WAN, it is either all traffic through the tunnel or all traffic through the normal WAN.

If the VPN drops is will re-connect automatically, when it is down (disabled manually for example or trying to connect) traffic will be routed through the normal WAN
