Please note that PDQ Link is a free tool that is provided as-is. We do not offer any additional product support for PDQ Link beyond the information found in this knowledge base.
You have set up PDQ Link and want to disable Split-Tunneling on the clients.
You can use PDQ Deploy to deploy a Powershell one-liner that will disable Split-Tunneling on the client computers.
First, you will want to verify the VPN connection name on the client computers. This will be the name that you configured during the PDQ Link installation process, but if you need to confirm it, you can from the client via Powershell:
Once you've verified your VPN connection name, you can write a quick Powershell one-liner that will disable Split-Tunneling on the client:
Set-VpnConnection -AllUserConnection -Name "PDQ Link Connection" -SplitTunneling $False
You can verify your Split-Tunneling status again by using the same cmdlet you used to get the name of the VPN connection:
Now that we know how to disable Split-Tunneling, it's time to deploy. From your PDQ Deploy Server, create a new package, and start with a Powershell step.
Paste the one-liner mentioned earlier into the Powershell step in your new package. You can leave all of the other options as their defaults.
Once you've created your package, simply deploy to the targets you wish to disable Split-Tunneling for and you're done! If you ever wish to re-enable Split-Tunneling on these targets, simple replace the $False with $True in your Powershell one-liner.
Disclaimer: This will disconnect your remote clients and possibly show an error in PDQ Deploy if you make this change while the user is connected to PDQ Link. If you choose to do this deployment while your users are connected remotely, make sure that you warn them to re-connect to PDQ Link afterwards, or do this deployment after you have performed any other important deployments that you need to perform that day. If you are deploying the PDQ Link client to your users with PDQ Deploy, you can also add the Powershell step above after the install step in your package to go ahead and disable Split-Tunneling during the initial client installation.
