Question VPN only. If vpn-off, then block all traffic connecton.

Hi folks / Hello Forum,

can find an answer for my question since weeks. Maybe you ppl can help me out?:

I want that my traffic goes over VPN only.
I mean, if the VPN is OFF, then internet traffic connections should be blocked.
So it does not connect anywhere without the VPN.

(I use vista to connect to the VPN (pptp)).
(So no client application like cisco-vpn etc.)

Any idea how to configure vista for that?
I use the "outpost pro 2009" firewall but there seems not to be such a configuration-rule :\

Any idea which Firewall can do or better: how to configure it in vista? Or is there any application for that?

Try to help me ppl

I don't think you are understanding the priciple of VPN's in the first place, usually they are used to keep corporate data safe via tunneling, all other data not identified as VPN traffic must use the default gateway for access, you can configure that to not accept any protocols, but 'normal' traffic wont be handled by the tunneling protocols for VPN's, so really your just limiting your connections severely.

Is there a specific goal or reason for wanting to do this most unusual arrangement, what do you hope, or think, you might gain from it (if and it's a big if, you can get it to work in the way you describe).
