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 an Amahi server. I made sure that current Amahi ip adress is the same as in my control panel, DHCP and DNS are switched off on my modem/router and up and running on Amahi. I know it's working because I can access http://hda (for example) in a browser without any problems from within my home network; I can also ping it.

I am beginning to suspect that this is not an Amahi problem, but I'll need to check it first, for example by checking if I can make a VPN connection with another device than my laptop. If i remember correctly there has been an update of the network-manager-openvpn package in Linux mint (and ubuntu in general) recently. If my layman's eyes are not mistaken, there are more users with the same kind of issues:

Or is this something else?

Anyway, thanks a million for helping me out!

You could be on to something.

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.

Not sure what else it could be.

Maybe if you could test from another client OS and see if the problem persists.
