I’m a technology and software guy in Atlanta. I’m actually a native Atlantan, having grown up in Gwinnett County and then going to Georgia Tech. I got out of Tech in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, and since that time I’ve been living and working in the area. I’m the CEO and co-founder of Bravadosoft, a software company creating the first Social Analytics Extranet.

Did not work. Hmm. Using curl --interface tun0 works just fine, but adding this routing rule did not.

Yeah, I just did this from a "regular" (non-AWS EC2) VPS and it worked fine. So...it's an EC2 thing with their IP addresses or routing. Hmm.

Ok, that's close! Now I just need to get default traffic to use this VPN connection. It looks like the OpenVPN provider is using the TUN device and giving me a new 10.8.0.1 IP address. Do I just change my default gateway to something else now?

I'm forming a bridge from computers to the Internet, to provide access to items they wouldn't ordinarily have.
