windows 7 dns issues

Post by remy.angel » Fri Nov 17, 2017 2:03 pm

Hi,
i'm a little bit lost, so i try to have some help here,
i have a dns issue with all my computers with windows 7, they have got dns pushed but they don't use it .
after a research, i have find the solution to change the order of the network cards... no change. they are allready in the good order .
after,i have find a creepy workaround but it's not a solution for me.
when i'm connected to my personal network (wire or wifi) i launch openVPN , so i have no dns resolution, i have to disconnect/reconnect quickly my personnal network and after that all works fine ......

please help me :)

Better to use --block-outside-dns

See --block-outside-dns in The Manual v24x

don't use it
ipconfig /all show DNS on the right network card
ping doesn't works
nslookup works
:/
