Make sure you check the option "Use this connection only for the resources of this net" on the IPv4 network option.

What does not work, connect to Internet, but you can connect to the vpn Network? or the VPN it self. When you use VPN and this option is not set all network traffic is passed to the VPN so your Internet will come from the private network you access with the VPN. if you VPN network do not work you may need to add a manual route to the vpn network.

Thanks, aeperezt for your help and response, I mean when checked this option I can browse websites from the internet but I can not access VPN network. I thought it is a bug in kernel some modules not loaded or something similar or as your suggestion, it's routing related problem see this screenshot: and see this bug report I was created in bugzilla service to see logs and more details about this issue:

I note from comparing my Fedora 25 ip routing command output and Fedora 27 with the same configuration there is missing ip address here:

I had a similar problem on another distro. After researching, I had to install another package that changes resolv.conf when the VPN is started. Maybe something like that is what you need.

Thanks tim, Can you tell me what is the kernel version you use and the name of this package ?
