My ClearOS community version filters the web access using Gateway Management.
However, when my clients access the VPN through OpenVPN, they don't surf on the Internet on the websites blocked on GM rules.
Is it possible to allow the VPN clients to surf on the Internet without GM restrictions?
In OpenVPN

    Then why is internet-destined traffic traffic going through OpenVPN at all? Please check if the DNS lookups from the clients are working for the sites being blocked? if they are not, they may have bad default upstream DNS Servers.

    The options "Enable NAT (Gateway mode only)", "Force All traffic through VPN", "Allow Client to Client traffic", and "Force DNS through VPN" are disabled.

    The easiest way is to not enable "Force All traffic through VPN". Then traffic not destined for your server and its LAN(s) can get to the internet without even going through the VPN.

    [edit]
    You may also want to disable "Force DNS through VPN"
