I've configured and can successfully connect via OpenVPN on my Asus router.
When I'm away from home, I'd like to be able to continue using pihole for dns - heres what i've tried
# pihole runs on 192.168.1.150 # added this to openvpn server.conf push "dhcp-option DNS 192.168.1.150"
Here is also a sample from my
client.ovpn, which i added when the server conf DNS config failed
...etc auth SHA1 ns-cert-type server dhcp-option DNS 192.168.1.150 ...etc
Here is log output from my IOS openvpn client
In my case it looks like I've successfully added my pihole DNS to the VPN connection, but the client fails to block ad requests.
I'm testing this using https://blockads.fivefilters.org/?pihole
If I disconnect VPN and switch back to wifi, the pihole test works as expected for DNS 192.168.1.150, so i've triple checked its the correct IP
