I have seen working solutions around the issue of forcing Internet traffic to go through the OpenVPN server but they are all done in Linux, all I want to know is how to add an entry to the route table in windows to make this happen. connectivity between the client and server is fine, my Windows 7 client can establish a connection to the Windows 2008 Server, but when established Internet traffic is still going from the local Windows 7 machine. Here are the details:

Server:

Windows 2008 Server with one NIC
OpenVPN IP Address: 192.168.0.1
Local NIC IP Address (connects the server to the Internet): 10.242.69.107

Can someone please let me know how to add this entry in my server/client route table?
