I realize this is a very basic and newbie question. I am familiar with cmd line ipconfig/all but I’m not sure what physical address I am looking for.
Here’s what I am trying to do. I want to create a VPN killswitch, one that stops all incoming and outgoing traffic if my VPN client drops. I am using an actual software client from my provider which has a built-in kill switch, but it happens that the client crashes and the traffic remains open, thus defeating the purpose.
I am following this tutorial - How to Create a Custom VPN Kill Switch in Windows my tech oriented brother suggested after confirming it seemed to be a good solution… but I haven’t been able to get past creating a Network Zone, because I can’t identify my physical address properly. It says to look for Tap-Win32 info but I don’t have that.
I have 3 different adapters that show under ipconfig/all:
Ethernet adapter 2 - Description: Tap-Windows Adapter v9 - Media Disconnected
Ethernet adapter - Description: Intel Ethernet Connection - This one looks connected and has an address
Tunnel adapter isatap - Description: Microsoft ISATAP Adapter 2 - Media Disconnected
I am running Windows 10
I do NOT have the VPN client currently connected
I am connected through ethernet, not wifi
Do I need to connect to a VPN server first? Is one of those 3 adapters the one I am looking for to add to my Network Zone?
Sorry again for the beginner questions, thanks in advance!
