VPN DNS Leaks in TahrPup Subject description: VPN DNS Leaks in TahrPup
New to PuppyLinux in general, so forgive me if this is a simple issue or if this post is in the wrong category. I searched the forum a few times and didn't see this question asked anywhere else.
Using Tahrpup and OpenVPN 2.3.2 installed from the Ubuntu repos, I'm seeing DNS leaks while connected. I have my ovpn connection files setup to use the update-resolv-conf script to prevent this as follows:
This configuration works without leaks in Ubuntu, but not in Puppy. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas what the issue might be?
I posed the same question in the puppy hex chat and was asked to try running OpenVPN as Spot. Doing so allows me to log in, but crashes once a connection is attempted (with a permissions error). This was semi-expected behavior bc even in Ubuntu I have to run OpenVPN with sudo.
If you edit resolve.conf the dhcp daemon will rewrite it periodicaly. You can try using a static IP or alternatively edit "resolve.conf.head
Here are some more tips from archwiki
To do this, add the following to the last section of /etc/dhcpcd.conf:
Alternatively, you can create a file called /etc/resolv.conf.head containing your DNS servers. dhcpcd will prepend this file to the beginning of /etc/resolv.conf.
Or you can configure dhcpcd to use the same DNS servers every time. To do this, add the following line at the end of your /etc/dhcpcd.conf, where dns-server-ip-addressses is a space separated list of DNS IP addresses.
