Asuswrt Merlin with two VPN clients

Rate this question

Question

With being told that I can't use a streaming IP for torrents, I'm trying to set things up so that my torrent box connects to torguards Sweden server, whilst the device I use for US streaming connects to the streaming IP.

 

I have configured two VPN Clients in my RT-AC87U, and they are both connected, client 1 to the streaming IP and client 2 to swe.torguardvpnaccess.com.  I've used policy rules to route the devices to either the streaming IP (one device), the Sweden server (torrent box), or just general WAN (pretty much everything else).

 

The problem is despite using policy rules, my torrent box is still connecting to the streaming IP.  How do I fix this?

Hi, it is certainly possible:

You can activate more than one VPN profile at the time, however, however, if using high encryption on 2 profiles at the same time might be overload for the router. Therefore I would not recommend using a couple of profiles at the same time. 

As for routing - to set up policy-based routing on a Merlin router, do the following:

1. Navigate to VPN -> OpenVPN Client.
2. Under Advanced Settings select "Redirect Internet Traffic: Policy Rules".
3. A new option will appear "Block routed clients if tunnel goes down" which has to be enabled.
4. Then under the "Rules for routing client traffic through the tunnel" add the devices which you want to route through the VPN.
For example, add a new device and select the following settings:
Description: device description
Source IP: device local IP address
Destination IP: blank
Iface: VPN

I would recommend using static LAN IPs when setting up policy based routing because LAN IPs might change after reconnecting.
