Thanks for the reply.
The authentication of the modem is/should be done on a different level way before we get access to the att network.
I am by no means a "network guy"
But redirecting my request to connect to a side looks a lot like highjacking ?
Trying to intercept a vpn Connection isn't good thing either.
That is if this is what is going on here.
Usually there is a reason for people to use vpn.
Most of the time it is used for work and to keep others out.
After all it is called virtual private network and it is used to keep traffic privat.
Can you imagine if my company finds out that att is intercepting our traffic??
Or any company for this matter.
Sonic seemed to be big on privacy, so I hope that sonic looks into this and let's us know if there is anything fishy going on with unwanted re-directs and even more with a possible "fake" vpn connection.
It happens sometimes that I get disconnected from the sonic vpn and sometimes have to restart the von service a few times to get a connection again? I starting to wonder if this is related.
On the other hand. Is there any help on setting up the vpn to ensure that there is no "man in the middle attac" possible.
OpenVPN has many possible settings.
All I can find is settings for the app but nott on how to configure the vpn as a service.
Thanks for looking I to his and the help
I'm by no means a connectivity specialist here but I have FTTN service at home that I use once in a while and have noticed occasionally after it's been a long time since I used it or when the connection was dropping it would try to redirect all my web requests to gateway.attlocal.net or some such address to do gateway authentication.
Do you frequently notice issues with your connection or times where you don't have service? I suspect maybe it's the modem trying to redirect you to that page so the modem can authenticate with the network.
This isn't anything malicious but if it's happening a lot it *may* indicate something is up with the connection to ATT's network.
