They aren’t the same time periods. The 1.9 GB usage I first spoke of started on 12/13 when I reset the iPhone logging and ran to 12/16. My iPhone showed 2.0GB usage on 12/17, a .1GB difference for 1 day. The 2GB (Dial #3283) Verizon has recorded started several days before 12/13. Since my corporate managed account shows the current period ends on 1/11/20, I’m assuming it began on 12/11/19.
I am on a corporate plan and they give out very little in the way of detail on usage. My interface into the billing is mostly concerned around chargeback and what the total data is, all after the fact. Anything up to date is from using Verizon’s dialing codes, which their internal technicians say are about 12-24 hours out of date.
So if we assume that Apple isn’t recording the outgoing data usage correctly and counting it on top of what 184.108.40.206 records, that sounds like things are being transferred through the VPN like they’re supposed to be. Maybe.
Until my billing cycle rolls over, I am not using 220.127.116.11 on cellular. I’ll be at home for most of the holidays and have set the preferences to only use WiFi, which due to shortsightedness on Apple’s part, application network usage on WiFi is not logged (at least not where I can easily get at it.) I am working on a way to monitor my home WiFi usage by device, but haven’t finalized exactly how to do it. My companies VPN doesn’t like Verizon, NetGear, or Linksys routers, so I’m using an EERO mesh system which doesn’t do that (yet.) Once it has recycled, I will do a little testing on my own to see what I can learn.
If anyone (Hello Cloudflare!) knows where the 18.104.22.168 data log is, I would appreciate it.
And to forestall the inevitable advice on what VPN my company should use, there are currently just under 500,000 people employed by us globally. My recommendations would fall on deaf ears and I suspect that we don’t procure VPN products, we write our own.
