Choose VPN Interface

I'm running VPN on SLS and it seems that the network you want everyone to connect to through VPN has to be the first interface in Network preferences. My server is connected directly to the Internet through Ethernet and to my network via Wi-fi. When using the server to download things, clearly I'd prefer for Ethernet to be listed first, but this cuts off VPN access since wi-fi is the second interface. Any ideas?

I don't quite get what you're asking then, I guess. If you're connected to the internet through ethernet, it's going to use ethernet to download since the wi-fi doesn't have an internet connection. Or does the wi-fi have an internet connection?
