Thats my config,

I want to disable redirect-gateway because im trying to setup the server so I have remote access to my computers not so that I can forward my connection

i have tried commenting out the push redirect-gateway line (with a #) and restarting my server then reconnecting my client but then nothing works on the client and chrome tells me that a dns server could not be found

ps i used this tutorial to install my server:
