I'm very new to networking and had a question that hopefully has a very simple answer.
I use a VPN which means all my internet traffic should hop to the VPN server meaning I'll only see one operating IP in all my network monitoring software.
However, when I run netstat -ano I see Google Chrome has opened many connections to 172.20.0.1 which is not associated with my VPN.
What is causing Chrome to bypass the VPN? Is it intentional or the cause of some malware/trojan software specifically defined to thwart the VPNs anonymity?
I have tried multiple different VPN protocols and ports always with the same result of certain system processes and Google Chrome accessing the internet via ports other than the VPN's encrypted tunnel.
