One-Click VPN: Custom Routing and Default DNS Suffix

In this tutorial, you are introduced to an important feature of One-Click VPN: Custom Routing and Default DNS Suffix for One-Click VPN. Here’s a quick overview of these two functions:

Custom Routing

This function allows you to define whether an IP address or subnet will be routed through the One-Click VPN tunnel when Proxy Mode is set to the Intranet mode. Custom routing allows the configured IP addresses or subnets to still go through the One-Click VPN tunnel when the client is set to the Intranet mode. Without the need to route all traffic through the One-Click VPN tunnel, employees working remotely can use One-Click VPN to simply access the resources that are accessible only from the company network. Intranet mode can significantly reduce the bandwidth usage coming from the One-Click VPN-connected clients, and in turn, increase the internet speed of One-Click VPN.

Note: This function only applies to clients using the Intranet VPN Proxy mode, while the Global mode still routes all traffic through the VPN tunnel.

Default DNS Suffix

The Default DNS Suffix allows administrators to set a DNS suffix that is automatically filled following the hostname element. This means that Windows clients only need to enter the hostname element to access resources through their FQDNs. This is especially helpful if clients need to access resources that come with a long domain name.
