Preprogram Your Internet Routing
with Internet Gateway Selection
Configure how internet traffic is routed from your networks, servers, and devices.
A Sophisticated, Modern Approach to Secure Internet Access
When direct access to the internet is not secure enough, you need a more sophisticated approach. With Internet Gateway Selection, you can control which private network is used as an internet gateway for your diverse networks, servers, and devices.
Move away from a one-size-fits-all secure network connectivity approach and manage the load on your network — while reducing cost and complexity.
An internet gateway is an exit point within a private network that operates as an egress to the public internet. For OpenVPN Cloud, a Network can be configured to function as an internet gateway to route public internet traffic for Networks, Hosts, or User Groups.
Smart routing determines the best internet gateway based on:
- The geographic proximity of the WPC Region that is the source of the traffic to the WPC Region of the Network’s Connector,
- The network characteristics of the connectivity between source and destination WPC Regions
You can also specifically select one or multiple Internet Gateways per User Group, Network, and Host
One or more Networks can be set to act as an exit point for public internet traffic that enters your WPC. To learn how read Adding VPN Egress.
Split Tunnel is a configuration setting of the tunnel that connects the device to OpenVPN Cloud. It can be set to select what kind of traffic is sent through the tunnel.

When set to ON, only specific traffic configured to be routed to OpenVPN Cloud enters the tunnel, and general internet traffic does not.
