CryptoFree DNS problem

Post by mando » Fri Dec 06, 2019 3:18 am

I have been using the descriptions at https://cryptostorm.is/#section6
in conjunction with the config files at https://cryptostorm.is/configs/cryptofree/ for OpenVPN implementations on various platforms, using arbitrary usernames and passwords.

The VPN connection is establishing fine (works for all of the config files provided), BUT the DNS resolution does NOT work. This is not a problem I have with other VPN services, hence I am very sure it is related to the VPN config files or the CryptoFree server(s) - and not related to the platforms or OpenVPN implementations I am using.

If someone has an idea what might be wrong and how to solve this, please step forwards.

Thanks and greetings
