Post by freed1b » Tue Dec 29, 2015 7:21 am

Hi all, newbie here

How do i use block-outside-dns in a windows config file (using latest openvpn 2.3.9). If I just include as is - i get a connection failure.

Thanks in advance for your help

That is your config file ... not your log.

However, --block-outside-dns can be used by simply adding it to that config file,
provided you use Windows Vista or newer (this does not work on Windows XP)

Ensure you have a server push a suitable DNS server.

For further help please post your log file at verb 4

See --log, --verb and --block-outside-dns in The Manual v23x
