If the VPN tunnel is established over a "metered connection" it is always set to "ethernet" or it cannot even connect to the gateway. This is a big issue for mobile users in some countries without data flat rates on their cell phones.

I want to request a feature that the VPN client should use the "metered connection" setting. This should prevent the download of Windows Updates for example.


best regards,

Hello Alex,


Good idea in my opinion.
