OpenVPN Client using PIA - DNS issues when VPN is connected

  • I'm trying to get OpenVPN to connect to PIA via the client. I need it to connect at startup as well. I got this working on my Raspberry Pi OMV install without any problems immediately. After testing there, I decided to move to my production NAS and this is giving me DNS issues.


    Here's the directions that worked immediately on the Pi install. I replicated them on prod.

    I also added these lines to the OVPN/CONF files on prod in an attempt to correct the DNS issue.

    So basically, when I run OpenVPN with the OVPN file, it connects fine but then DNS fails immediately.





    I did copy the OVPN to a CONF and point to it in the /etc/default/openvpn file to autostart by name. That's another issue, but I want to focus on the DNS issue first.
