Can I use OpenDNS with a VPN vendor with multiple servers?

    Depending on your VPN installation and configuration, you will not be able to use OpenDNS for your DNS lookups when being connected through a VPN, but you will be using the DNS service configured at the remote (server) side of the VPN instead (which theoretically could be OpenDNS).

    If the VPN client uses a virtual ethernet adapter (TAP) (e.g. OpenVPN), you still can configure the OpenDNS resolver addresses on it, so you are using OpenDNS for your DNS lookups, but you should not register the VPN server's IP address with your OpenDNS dashboard network, because you do not own it except you are the owner of the VPN server side too.
