I am using Shrew Client 2.2.2 to use a VPN connection with split tunneling. How can I check or where can I see, that the split tunnel is working properly?
Thanks in advance, Dirk

Traceroute will show you the path your traffic is following. With split tunneling, a traceroute to an internet IP should not pass your VPN gateway.
Another way to make sure traffic to the internet is not going through the tunnel is by visiting a website which shows your IP address (eg. whatismyip.com or ifconfig.me). If your IP address is from your local provider and not from the network your tunnel is connected to, the packets were routed to the website directly, not through the tunnel.
Generally split tunnel enable us to access internet host application or resources from Laptops connected with split tunnel configured vpn at the same time even we can access organization intranet application as well ..
To verify this connectivity whether split tunnel is working or not
Tracert any internet hosted application from laptop it should use your internet service provide(ISP) gateway to reach destination
Tracert any intranet hosted application that is organisation local hosted website it should take gateway ip of your organization public ip which is used to connect vpn .
