    Do not configure OpenDNS on the VPN adapter of the client computers.

    Rotblitz, thank you for answering my question.

    I did not configure OpenDNS on my client. It uses those DNS servers by default. I thought this was pushed by the VPN server

    The principal is that the VPN server forwards DNS traffic to OpenDNS, not the VPN client. Check the VPN server software for DNS forwarder addresses.

    Hi,

    I've setup forwarders on my VPN server to the following DNS servers

    208.67.222.222
    208.67.220.220
    208.67.222.220
    208.67.220.222

    I not setup any DNS settings on my client. The DNS servers visible in my VPN connection have been pushed by the server.

    Kr,

    Daniel

    This indicates a problem with the VPN software I cannot help with.

    Hi,

    Thank you for putting in the effort.

    I've found that some users of the VPN are being routed through the OpenDNS servers. 

    I'll request their settings and compare them with mine. If I find the issues I'll post it here.

     

    Kind ragards,
