Currently, I have an Ubuntu server and desktop attached to my home network.
However, I'm trying to get my server to have two network interfaces. One "internal", and one "external" that routes traffic through a VPN service. I'd like to be able to connect to the server locally on the internal network, but would want to have VPN traffic to/from the server coming in externally.
I've never set up a VPN connection before, so I'm unsure if the configuration calls for making a distinction between local/external traffic. I installed OpenVPN and started poking around with the configuration but haven't gotten very far.
Is there a certain way I should set up my client config in order to retain local non-vpn access to the server from my desktop?
