I have recently noticed a strange behavior with OpenVPN client.
Say I do a mtr vpn_server_ip BEFORE connecting the VPN client. Everything is fine, the route is displayed as expected.
Once connected I have the VPN client connected with the proper routes and gateway set up for everything to go by the VPN, save of course vpn_server_ip. but then I get nothing from the mtr, first hop responds (my home router) but all subsequent hops fail.
I dont see any difference in route -n that would explain this change...
It is a minor problem really, doesn't affect (afaik) the working of the vpn but it is puzzling.
