Trying to set up SoftEther VPN by this article: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-setup-a-multi-protocol-vpn-server-using-softether

I've successfully set up CentOS SoftEther server and connected to it by OSX SoftEther client... But what's next? My network traffic is still going in old ways, nothing is going through VPN tunnel. Normally VPN clients updates routing table during connection but not this one.

Any guidance how to reroute all my traffic except local LAN to the VPN? And how to swith it all back when vpnclient is off?

PS: excellent tutorial! I was up and running in an hour! Thanks!

I am not super familiar with the SoftEther client for Mac but was able to locate a thread here which looks like it provides the relevant troubleshooting options for this issue. There are a few suggestions here on configuration changes in your client to ensure all network traffic is routed through the VPN.
