[Bug 1211110] Re: network manager openvpn dns push data not updating system DNS addresses


Tristan, how is that a leak? Connections to will go through the
VPN, not outside of it. By the way, the problem remaining is that
sometimes NM seems to still use the DNS of the router as well. It's as
if without VPN you have say as primary DNS, but with VPN you
get these DNS servers: (for example)

Then sometimes the third DNS receives the query. I will experiment with
setting the static DNS to the Wi-Fi connection as well. Of course it
would be easier if this bug actually gets fixed.

  network manager openvpn dns push data not updating system DNS

Status in network-manager package in Ubuntu:
Status in openvpn package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When IPv4 Method is set to Automatic VPN, DNS address recieved from
  OpenVPN server do not update resolv.conf.

  This can be achieved when using a standard openvpn config file by
  adding the lines:

  script-security 2
  up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf
  down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf

  In Network-manager there seems to be no option to run connection
  specific scripts and the DNS data from the server is ignored.

  Ubuntu 13.04
