OpenVPN Connect ignores pull-filter ignore "dhcp-option DNS"

Post by toggenation » Sun Jun 20, 2021 9:03 am

Just trying to stop my Windows 10 Enterprise v 3.3.0 client from configuring the remote DNS server.


Code: Select all

pull-filter ignore "dhcp-option DNS"
and my connection still has the remote DNS server pushed by the QNAP OpenVPN server

Do you have the same issue on v3.2.3?
Or only on v3.3.0?

Hello toggenation,

As far as I know that option has not been implemented yet on the currently released OpenVPN Connect software. That is because it is based on OpenVPN3 core and that does not have all the options as OpenVPN2. If you must use this function, you can use the open source OpenVPN2 program instead.

We do already have support for pull-filter options in OpenVPN3 core codebase by the way. But it has not yet made it to a release of OpenVPN Connect v3 yet. A future release however will get it, once a newer core version is used that contains this code.

Kind regards,
