I have been disabling the 'use default gateway for remote networks' option to bypass unnecessary traffic from going through vpn. But after upgrading to Windows 10 I can't change the setting since the IPv4 Properties does not open up when I click it.

enter image description here

Is there any other way to access this setting?

    If the IPv4 properties don't open, then I'd say you probably have a bigger problem that you should be concerned about first. – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Aug 10 '15 at 15:35

    @Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 well, he isn't alone with that problem. I have a fresh Windows 10 Installation here and the Properties button does nothing. There a number of TechNet Topics but so far, silence from Microsoft. – enzi Aug 18 '15 at 15:45
  • This was a bug. It was fixed in TH2. See related answer here. – StackzOfZtuff Mar 14 '16 at 13:00
  • How did you even get to this dialog box in Windows 10? I can't find anything like this in the current version of Windows. – Jonathan Wood May 17 '18 at 22:44
  • @JonathanWood Easiest way is to go to Control Panel-> Network and Internet-> Network and Sharing Center-> Change Adapter Settings (on left)-> Right click any adapter and select properties. You will see a dialog like this open up with Networking Tab on it. – Asif M May 17 '18 at 22:49

You can use this powershell command to enable/disable default gateway on VPN:

Set-VpnConnection -Name "myVPN" -SplitTunneling $True
  • Tried earlier, but my tracert goes always through VPN, even after applying this command. And yes, I know name of "myVPN". :( – Jiří Herník Sep 1 '15 at 10:45

    what if I am using VPN Client called 'FortiClient' ? I can't list or set config using this above command. What is the solution for that. – OverrockSTAR Mar 14 '16 at 21:09

    Something is missing here. What does True mean? Do, or do not, use the remote default gateway? – underscore_d Jan 11 '17 at 10:51

    $True mean this setting will be enabled, default value in windows is $False – Madmucho Apr 7 '17 at 11:47
  • I tried this, and it resulted in no traffic going through the VPN at all, not even the VPN-only sites -.- – Attila Szeremi Oct 10 '17 at 10:53

If you go to here: %appdata%\Microsoft\Network\Connections\Pbk\rasphone.pbk open with text editor and for every Vpn connection listed change IpPrioritizeRemote=1 – change this to 0 to disable

  • Nice, the tool is cool when run from win+r by rasphone. – Qwerty Jun 13 '16 at 14:10
