Re: Cannot claim Plex server, 'there was a problem signing in to Plex'

Solved it myself. The problem was that Plex could not reach the custom DNS I was using. I solved that by temporarily switching to the google DNS, which was instantly recognized by Plex. After I claimed my server, I switched back again to my custom DNS.

SOLVED: Cannot claim Plex server, 'there was a problem signing in to Plex'

I have been running Plex for quite a while now, but because of a recent restart I was forced to completely reinstall Plex. Everything went fine until the moment that I had to claim my server. When I try to log in it gives me the (totally useless) message that 'there was a problem logging in to Plex'...

Re: No (local?) DNS when connected to OpenVPN

Have you tried uninstalling the openvpn App and then reinstalling? Are you using the new client certificates?
Yes, I did both; I have re-installed and restarted Amahi several times, and renewed my certificates accordingly.

Re: No (local?) DNS when connected to OpenVPN

If the result does not show your IP address of the HDA, then there is something not right. It shows my ip-adress. BTW, when installing did you follow the guidance precisely and not deviate? I did follow the guidance precisely, for as far as I can tell; it's not the first time that I have installed ...

Re: No (local?) DNS when connected to OpenVPN

something else to add:
I just did - connected to VPN - an nslookup on my local amahi domain and got the following reply:

Code: Select all

Server: 127.0.1.1 Address: 127.0.1.1#53
and

Code: Select all

server can't find [mydomain]: REFUSED
Shouldn't the server-ip be my local static amahi ip-adress?

Re: No (local?) DNS when connected to OpenVPN

Is the wifi hotspot you are using assigning the same subnet as your home network? i.e. 192.168.1.x No, for as far as I can tell. My home network is 192.168.178.x (not very common), which is not used at the places I connect to (public) wifi. Meanwhile I've been fiddling around and trying to see if s...

Re: No (local?) DNS when connected to OpenVPN

Yes I did, and helas, id does not solve my problem. I do have some questions though. In the server side config file i noticed a couple of lines, for example this one: server 10.8.0.0 255.255.255.0 This is not my server adress, however. Another one: push "route 192.168.178.0 255.255.255.0" This is ou...

Re: No (local?) DNS when connected to OpenVPN

It seems I have celebrated a little too early. Yesterday, I tested the VPN connection on my cell phone with mobile internet; that worked, and still is working.

Connecting, however, to the internet via another wifi spot, sadly, is not working. Any (new) ideas?

Re: No (local?) DNS when connected to OpenVPN

Et voila!

After also setting the secondary DNS to my local Amahi Static IP everything worked immediately, and without any hickups. Consider this one solved!

No (local?) DNS when connected to OpenVPN

It seems my DNS server is not working when I make a connection via OpenVPN. Or at least, when connected to OpenVPN I cannot reach my Samba-shares, nor my router (http://router) or my hda (http://hda). I can, however, reach the rest of the internet, but this, I believe is due to the fact that I have ...
