block-outside-dns blocks internet

Post by Frankyy » Sun Mar 24, 2019 4:23 pm

I hope this is posted in the correct section of this forum.
To prevent a DNS Leak, I added "block-outside-dns" on my WIN 10 client side to prevent a DNS leak. However, when I connect to my home VPN (Hosted on a linux router) with a WIN 10 Client, I lose all connection to the internet. It used to work, but I think since I updated to latest client OPENVPN, it no longer works. It connects fine and issues me an IP address, but no internet. Any ideas on how to fix?

Did you push DNS to your WIN10...
Is pinging an IP working from WIN10...
