Mac OS can connect VPN but couldn’t send all traffic over it

To help some of my foreign friends bypass the GFW to access the facebook, I created some VPN accounts for them.
But most of them told me they can connect VPN but still couldn’t access the facebook.
After I checked their VPN settings, I found the root cause, and fixed it.

The root cause is that Mac OS ignores the “Send all traffic over VPN connection” and follows the order of connections in “Network”.

I fixed it by these steps:

Click on System Preferences
Click on Network
Click on the gear icon below the port listing
Click on Set Service Order
Drag the VPN service to set the order, move it up to the top
Click on OK

Click the VPN service
Click the Advanced Settings
Click the Options
Chose the option “Send all traffic over VPN connection”
Click on OK
