    snapgear 565 as pptp client exposes device to internet

      Currently running a snapgear 565 version 4.0.10 and when I configure a pptp vpn client connection and set it as the default route, my snapgear device is fully exposed to the internet via the VPN assigned IP address.  Is there anyway to prevent my device from being exposed to the internet?  As soon as I set my default route back to my primary internet connection, the device is no longer accessible from the internet.

       

      Thank you,

          I figured it out.  I had to add a packet filter rule to drop any inbound request on the VPN assigned IP address on the VPN interface.  Here are the parameters I used:

           

          action: drop

          type: inbound

          incoming interface: vpn client

          outgoing interface: none

          source address: any

          destination address: the vpn assigned ip address

          services: any
