Network Functionality Not Restored After Power Outage

Post by thomas-amain » Fri May 10, 2019 7:01 pm

I am using OpenVPN AS 2.6.1 on a perimeter CentOS 7 box at home. My wife and I use OpenVPN client 2.5.0.100 on Windows 10 Pro boxes to access our home network. Yesterday I kicked my power strip and powered off my workstation at work while connected to my home network via the client. When my workstation came back online, I was able to ping and resolve addresses via command line, but the shell was unaware that it was connected to the Internet. There was a yellow ! on my network connection and none of the shell apps (browsers, etc.) were able to access the Internet. I rebooted twice then it occurred to me what may be happening so I reconnected to my home network via the client and shell apps could again communicate. Functionality was retained after I correctly disconnected from my home network as well.

Would this be considered a bug? It would seem that while connected, the client is making a change that the shell apps see but command line utilities do not. Is this a known issue?
