OpenVpn Connected, But Not Directing/Routing Traffic (Windows 7 and Riseup VPN)


I recently encountered a problem with OpenVpn and the riseup VPN on a friend's notebook. Although it connected and seemed to work none of the traffic was going over the RiseupVPN.


This is the configuration of the .ovpn file that did the trick for me. Save it under C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\config\RiseupVpn.ovpn.
client
dev tun
remote vpn.riseup.net
auth-user-pass
ca RiseupCA.pem
redirect-gateway def1
verb 4

Or alternatively download the file here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B06EJahqJCOCOVV2NERwNEtVRlE/edit?usp=sharing

Also, make sure to run  OpenVpn as administrator. Right click on the OpenVPN application >> choose “Run as Administrator"
