I am connected to a VPN (Cisco AnyConnect VPN Client) which gives me access to some hosts that I need, but also blocks others that I also need access to (e.g. my mail server). So basically I have two gateways:
192.168.6.1 - VPN gateway
192.168.1.1 - normal home connection gateway
I have a specific host that I need normal (non-VPN) access to, which resolves to 184.108.40.206.
I tried adding a persistent route to that host, but it doesn't seem to be taking effect - that host is still blocked when connected to the VPN, which means the VPN connection is still being used to contact that host.
I attached my shortened ROUTE PRINT as a code snippet. I don't have an IPv6 persistent route set up, but I don't think that should be being used for this connection.
