Unable to connect to Work VPN

Post by Benben05 » Tue May 04, 2021 5:11 am

Hi!

Hoping someone can help me, I'm really not that knowledgeable when it comes to these kinds of stuff so please bear with me. Basically the jist of it is, just yesterday my wife just suddenly wasn't able to connect to her work vpn. It has been working for more than a year until now. Here's the log.

Tue May 04 13:07:30 2021 OpenVPN 2.1.4 i686-pc-mingw32 [SSL] [LZO2] [PKCS11] built on Nov 8 2010

Tue May 04 13:07:45 2021 RESOLVE: Cannot resolve host address: kbayan.dyndns.org: [HOST_NOT_FOUND] The specified host is unknown.

I'll try to provide anything that you guys ask (config files and all). Fingers crossed that this will be solved since my wife working from home depends on this issue getting fixed.

Cheers and thanks in advance!

The error is very specific.

You need to contact your network/server administrator.

So just to be clear, this issue is not on my end? Because I did not make any recent changes to my config or whatever it is that may cause this problem. Sorry for the noob questions.
