I can connect to VPN using openvpn but I can't get internet

Post by desbest » Fri May 18, 2018 8:14 am

I cannot ping google.com or bing.com while connected to my VPN or access any website. I can connect to my VPN, but I do not have internet access while connected.

Below is what I have tried
  • Disabling windows firewall and comodo firewall
  • Setup my DNS routing to Cloudflare 1.1.1.1 and Google Public DNS 8.8.8.8
  • Uninstalled my wireless driver then installed it again as administrator then uninstall openvpn client and install it again as administrator
  • Make the openvpn client run as administrator
  • Change the interface metric for my wifi adapter to 15 or 350

Code: Select all

netsh winsock reset
netsh winsock reset catalog
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
netsh int ip reset 
netsh int ip reset.log
netsh winsock reset catalog
How can I make my vpn connection have internet. I am using Windows 8.1 64 bit. The VPN connection works on my android phone. I am using OpenVPN for Windows version 2.4.6 l602

Okay that is the open source version of OpenVPN. This board on this forum is for the commercial OpenVPN Access Server program instead.

Try on one of the open source boards on this forum website to get help with this issue.
