I'm trying to establish a VPN from my Windows 8 machine to a server running OpenVPN. I have all certificates, key and configuration file set up. OpenVPN GUI works fine and says "client is now connected".
But all traffic from my machine continues as normal, ignoring the VPN. Sites report seeing my ip instead of the server's. I've read a dozen of guides and tutorials and they all stop at this part, so I guess this is a bug. OpenVPN GUI is running as administrator.
How do I effectively enable the VPN and route my traffic through it?
