Hi Guys. I knw what I want to achieve but not how to achieve it! Any hints would be gratefuly received, or, if it's not possible, tell me so I can stop trying.
I have an internet connection -> router with NAT, DHCP etc -> LAN with all kinds of switches and WiFi access points all on the same subnet.
I have a couple of TV devices that need to access the LAN and also access the internet via a VPN for access to the right countries.
So I connected a VPN router to the LAN and the TV devices to that router. Now all the TV traffic goes via the VPN - so far so good. But the VPN router also VPN's access to the local LAN addresses, so they are inaccessible.
I've fudged it for the moment with a physical 2-1 ethernet switch so I can switch the TVs direct to LAN or via the VPN router, which works, but obviously isn't a good solution.
What I think I need is a router to hang off my my LAN that will simple pass all local traffic but route all other addresses via the VPN.
Is there such a thing? Or is the another way to do it?
