Has anyone resolved this issue yet?

When i connect to my HDA using openvpn using ubuntu 9.04 or Fedora Core 10/ 11 the dns does not work,
When i connect using Windows XP everything works just fine.

I tried adding "nameserver 123.456.789.012" in the /etc/resolv.conf but that does not seem to work.

a nslookup hda.my.domain resolves into a message:
;; Got recursion not available from 123.456.789.012, trying next server

[edit]

Ok, i think i might found a solution, i found this on the openvpn forums:
"I found and fixed the problem. Turns out I had DNS recursion disabled
except for localhost. I added the 10.8.0.0/24 subnet and restarted named
and now everything works great."
I only do not know how or where to add 10.8.0.0/24.
I guess it has something to do with the nameserver, since he restarts that :)

I changed the named.conf to listen on all interfaces but the problem remains.
I added myself to the watchlist btw.

About my linux knowledge, im not an expert but i can find my way on a number off distributions.
I just am very new to OpenVPN, but google helps alot :mrgreen:

for now i edited my hosts file on my laptop, thats also works quite nicely 8-)
