I have a VPN connection set up on my OS X machine, and when I run
ifconfig in the terminal I get the following response:
utun0: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500 inet 10.8.0.6 --> 10.8.0.5 netmask 0xffffffff

You can verify that running
route -n and seeing that the default gateway for your tun interface is indeed
