Forward All Traffic Through Twingate

Saw the one topic around this, however, it didn’t work. When travelling, I am looking for forward all traffic through the connector leveraging my home connection and IP. How can I make it a full tunnel rather than split?


If you define resources for * (as a hostname) and as an IP CIDR Range, it wiill route ALL network traffic via your home connector while you’re connected to Twingate.

Hey Arthur,

What would be the best option to support a hybrid model where:

  1. Normal usage within the states would be to access home lab resources and leverage split tunneling (my primary use case for twingate)

  2. Secondary usage would be for friends/family (especially when traveling internationally) to use my home network as a full traffic forwarder (rather than signup for PIA, ProtonVPN, etc.)

I don’t have any internal resources for friends/family to access, so ideally, they wouldn’t be able to connect to my internal lans.

Could Twingate support that with 1 instance or would I be needing to create two instances?

Ah a fellow Fallout nerd! Always delightful to see.

You could get away with a single instance still. You would just want to define some user groups, and in “Your” group, you would have your homelab stuff/your resources, and in your “F&F” group, you would have * and - and then when you added a friend or family member, you’d put them in the F&F group and when connected to TG they’d essentially full tunnel through your connector, but when you connected, you’d only have access to your homelab stuff.

Make sense?

Yesss, <3 fallout. I’m not much for creativity though in terms of choosing a unique name i’m afraid.

Re: groups, that makes perfect sense. I’m going to spin that up tonight and give it a go.

if I wanted to get slightly fancier and have an external VPS dedicated to the F&F portion of the egress, looks like I could add the cloud side as a new remote network, install a connector into it, define the * and resources, and then add the F&F group to the resources in that new network.

P.S. My apologies to OP for hijacking the thread a bit. I felt that the topics were closely related and will help other folks out with similar wants/needs.
