[strongSwan] Strongswan. Address definition/Routing.

Hello again! I need your help.
The problem is that the traffic through VPN is sent only when accessing one
specific IP. I pointed this IP to leftsubnet = IP / 32 and everything works
well for linux, macos, android, ios. But Windows in this case does not see
the Internet and only the address specified in leftsubnet is available to
And is it still possible to specify specific ports? For example, you can
only take http and https through VPN. The protoport option did not help.
Thank you in advance!
