Use the Full-tunnel Option to Secure your internet access abroad.

As some of you know I spent a week in Crete and going without Internet for a week is just a no go for me.
But then how much do you trust public “free” wifi hot spots like this one?

I for one has in younger days played allot with MITM (Man-in-the-middle) attacks.
So i have no trust for any public wifi hotspots.

There fore I am really happy that with Untangle 9.3 the OpenVPN module supports Full-tunnel.
Meaning that now all traffic will go over the VPN and out via the Untangle unit. (if you configure it will say split tunnel is still a option)

But when dealing with Offsite usage that you wan’t to protect and/or filter there internet usage Untangle with Full -tunnel is really neat!!!

As 9.3 still is in Beta period I will not post a Step by Step but as soon as there is a Stable build of 9.3 I will do a Video guide on it.

OpenVPN full tunnel with Untangle 9.3

Today I  took part in the testing of the nightlybuild that should have fixed the last issues with “full tunnel” implementation. And it did fix the issues!!!

With 9.3 (as it looks right now) you will get a new option on your Adress pool.

If you hit the Edit button on the pool you will see this:

So you can create two address pools and have one for split tunnel and the other for full tunnel.

I think this is one of the last things Untangle has been missing and I am super happy that it is coming i 9.3!
