I tried googling the answers but I am still confused.
So lets say that I am connected to the home router. When I visit a site(say google.com),the traffic first passes through my home router. However,what happens next? Does my home router route the traffic to the vpn first before the vpn server routes this traffic again to my isp? At which stage does the encryption happens?
Furthermore, I get a new IP when I connect to a VPN. Does this new IP correspond to the IP of the vpn server or just a local ip in the VPN network?(like another machine connected to the same vpn)
How does the overall route look like?
