    block-outside-dns but for ASUS Merlin?

    Thanks for the suggestion, I've gone ahead and tried that but no luck so far. There are still Hosts outside of the VPN's location showing up. I've tried several setups now and it seems as though this one is doing the trick, at least for Firefox. I don't quite understand what the difference...

    block-outside-dns but for ASUS Merlin?

    I see. Tried a different browser but getting the same results. But what's still very confusing to me is that I don't have this issue whenever using the openVPN desktop client instead on a windows PC, regardless of which browser I use. So I assume it has to be an issue with the different...

    block-outside-dns but for ASUS Merlin?

    You mean here, correct? I have set it like this currently and while my IP is from the same country the VPN is, a DNS leak test still reveals my actual location (at least I think that's what's happening?). E.g. I live in Germany and the VPN is in Turkey, so ideally, the DNS Leak test...

    block-outside-dns but for ASUS Merlin?

    Hey guys, I'm accessing a VPN using the OpenVPN desktop client and everything works fine / is not reporting any DNS leaks. However, I would like the entire traffic of my device to go through the tunnel without always starting the software. Since I have an ASUS router, I installed Merlin...

    OpenVPN Client in ASUS causes IP/routing conflict

    So I've managed to find a solution for my router to enable the VPN by adding pull-filter ignore "route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0" into the .ovpn config. This did solve the issue in that sense that the router interface is now displaying the VPN as "connected", BUT now it doesn't seem to pass through the...

    OpenVPN Client in ASUS causes IP/routing conflict

    Ok, I'll ask him to do that. Meanwhile: Do you have any clue why everything works fine from my PC but the router refuses to act the same way? Does it have to do it with my router being assigned a WAN IP by the cable modem and my PC being assigned a LAN IP via the router or is that nonsense?

    OpenVPN Client in ASUS causes IP/routing conflict

    So any idea what it could be instead and if there's a way to run some tests via client side trying to fix these issues? Can I force my router to take a certain IP instead of what's being assigned?

    OpenVPN Client in ASUS causes IP/routing conflict

    I'm not sure but I don't think so. Can't ask him right now as he's at work. Any way I can check this from my side? Here's what "ipconfig" gives out as a result when connected via the openVPN client from my PC vs when not connected. Does this shed some light on the IP mess? As you can see...

    OpenVPN Client in ASUS causes IP/routing conflict

    Hey guys, I've been working on this problem for ages and can't seem to find a solution: My dad has set up a VPN and has provided me with an openVPN cfg file. Loading it into the OpenVPN client from my PC works absolutely fine - no issues whatsoever. However, I would like my entire...
