Description

The current OpenVPN client has no GUI option corresponding to the "route-nopull" argument. This is definitely an option users might want to configure, since without that option being enabled an active OpenVPN connection will attempt to grab any and all traffic it thinks can/should be routed through it. More maddening, this change doesn't seem to be noted in the locations one would expect to find it (routing table/etc.), which will cause significant confusion, especially if the OpenVPN connection was only being created to redirect specific traffic.

I suggest a simple checkbox option be added to the client configuration page with an explanation of what the option would enable or prevent, particularly emphasizing that without the "route-nopull" option enabled all internet traffic may be routed through the connection.
