Tomato OpenVPN client assigned for specific computers

Setting Redirect Internet traffic to “Policy Rules” opens a table where you can specify which computer goes through VPN and which ones uses direct connection. Leave the destination IP unspecified and it’ll pick the 0.0.0.0 as intended

However, there’s a logical trap when you blindly follow instructions setting “Accept DNS configuration” to “Exclusive” as given by most instructions assuming all computers go on the network through VPN. Setting it as “Exclusive” means even the computer not intending to use VPN will still need to go through your VPN provider’s DNS! For slow VPN connection, this will be painfully slow for ALL computers! Set it to “Relaxed” instead.
