I have configured a VPN service using only the built-in options from OS X. I have configured it as follows:
- Interface: VPN
- VPN Type: Cisco IPSec
- Service name: ...
I don't have any settings under Advanced, so I have entered no DNS Servers, no Search Domains, and no Proxie Servers or Proxy Configuration file for any of the protocols.
When am I connected to this VPN, does all my traffic go through the VPN connection? In other words, if I am using a messenger, searching on Google, sending email or browse the web, can the provider of the VPN service see all my traffic?
Here are the default entries in my routing table (output from
netstat -r -n):
Routing tables Internet: Destination Gateway Flags Refs Use Netif Expire default 192.168.1.1 UGSc 10 0 en1 default gway#5 UCSI 0 0 utun0
There are a whole bunch of IP-addresses that list specific gateways. I checked some of those IP-addresses, and they are related to the network that I use the VPN for.
Does the fact that the first
default is my own modem/router mean that in fact not all internet traffic passes through the VPN?
