New Around Here

I'm trying to set up Mulvad VPN and when I attempt to launch it I receive an error status of 2

I followed

however some settings I did not change

In Lan -> DHCP Server DNS 1 and 2 are blank

Accept DNS configuration is set to Relaxed

I do not use IPv6

Below is the log

Googleing the error it was suggested on linux forums to restart the VPN servive.

Would this help in this case or is it something unique to the mullvad ovpn config?
