I am on Rasbian Stretch. I installed OpenVPN (via PiVPN) and Pi-Hole (4.2).
I setup my Pi-Hole (that runs on 192.168.1.6 on the LAN) to use Cloudflare DNS over TLS (using the
cloudflared service on port
Pi-Hole works great locally (other clients on the LAN pointing their DNS to
192.168.1.6 can navigate properly and I see their stats in the admin panel).
The problem is when I try to setup OpenVPN to use
5054) as DNS server. I see no specific error in the logs but clients connected through the VPN just don't navigate. Everything starts working again if I change the setting in
server.conf to use other DNS (like
This is my

I tried changing
push "dhcp-option DNS 192.168.1.6" to
push "dhcp-option DNS 10.8.0.0" or
10.8.0.1 but nothing changes.
Any ideas why clients connected through OpenVPN can't navigate? What's wrong in my config? I want them to process DNS queries using
cloudflared on port 5054 of the Pi.
