    I followed the guide to install Perfect Privacy on my Asus RT-AC86U.

    Then I would like to know how I could put in place port forwarding rules to one of my devices while making sure everything is still going through the VPN tunnel.
    I’ve read many things here and there but I’m a bit confused now...
    My Router has IP address and the device I would like to forward to has
    Any idea how I could do that?

    tried to set up asus ax88u with pp. works ok, on wired static ip or dhcp clients. on wlan clients i have ipv6 leak,
    according to which show me the real ipv6 (my city). i followed your tutorial (which is obsolete, now we have 384.13), adapted and worked, only change is in pbr, like in attachment. but problem remain is in all wireless clients i have ipv6 leak. please give me an advise.
    le: of course, to is reserved for static ip, to for dhcp. wifi client like phones, tablets, have ipv6 leak, on laptops it just disabled ipv6, on desktop, never had ipv6.

    Hello. I would just use Cloudflare DNS Servers. Use them directly in the routers configuration for ipv6 and you can also use them for ipv4.
