    Go to VPN Client, then select the VPN profile, turn on Internet Kill Switch.

    Ok so first I cant believe I missed that option right there.. :(  Having said that, it was turned on already.  When I go to the machine, it still somehow is getting internet.   So my setup is simple.  I have a Windows Virtual Machine running in a Synology NAS.   It is setup to get a IP Address from the DHCP Device (Firewalla).   I have setup a static IP address to it in Firewalla which it is getting correctly.  I setup a Nord VPN profile.  Internet Kill Switch is enabled and Force DNS over VPN is enabled. When I connect Nord, I can see my internet is routed as I get yahoo in the local server language.  

    But when I disconnect the VPN, I go back to normal internet.  Somehow it is slower for some reason but it routes...  Any ideas?

    Issue is that you are manually turning off the VPN, so the traffic will route out the normal internet. The kill switch is if the VPN should drop connection for some other reason, besides you turning it off.
