    What you are looking for is somewhat of a Policy-based routing feature?  

    Match traffic pattern and route according to a set of policies ... (to VPN tunnel, or to a segment). If it is,  then we will be building this (including QoS) right after we ship the Gold.

    @Firewalla - You are spot on.
    Policy based routing to multiple VPN gateways

    Hulu >>> US VPN
    BBC iPlayer >> UK VPN

    Needless to say it will require ability to establish multiple vpn tunnels ☺️

    Well, yours is a bit more complex.  It is really two problems

    1. PBR ... 

    2. Multiple VPN clients 

    (1) is on the list for sure.  (2), you are the first person who is asking :)

    You need to set up 3rd party VPN. Read the following

    Regarding (2) Not exactly multiple VPN clients but multiple active VPN connections (Not sure if you meanT the same).

    This has been there in OpenWRT, ASUS routers etc for ages. With Gold replacing the routers now , I am sure there will be many asking for it 😊 (Hopefully)

    Would Policy-based routing enable, for example, a rule that sends an outgoing request to a specific IP address through my Gold box VPN client, and a different IP address request *not* through the VPN client?  I assume that's what Policy-based routing means, but I'm a noob...  As a specific example - right now, everything from my iPhone is routed through the VPN client (iVPN).  But eat.chownow.com is refusing connections from iVPN's IP.  If I could route any request to eat.chownow.com *around* the VPN client, I'd be golden.  If so, is there an update on when this function might be available?  Thank you.

    I'd love to see this, too. Right now I'm using a router configured with Sabai OS from Sabai Technology, and I've been a very happy customer for over 10 years. However, I'd like a more DIY version. They allow VPN to run on the router and have a "gateway" feature whereby I can select with device (based on IP address) routes through local traffic and which routes through VPN. That way I can still have my fast local internet for browsing, and also have my VPN connected such an Apple TV for region-specific routing.
