I was moved to encrypt.me after buffered was acquired. This VPN automatically encrypts network connections _it_ feels are unsafe. If you encrypt all traffic, your local routed networks may become unavailable. Here is an example network:
If you enable “Secure my connection” from the encrypt.me application, you will loose connection to both the Corporate and DMZ networks.
To fix this problem, create static routes on the workstation to point to the firewall/router for specific networks. It seems that encrypt.me only redirects the default gateway, so by adding static routes, you can bypass encrypt.me.
