Voxel [R7800] Voxel OpenVPN connection and msftncsi issues

Hi everybody, first of all big up for the community and all the hard work that's being done here. Really cool to see.

I decided to switch from DD-WRT to Voxel after reading many good things. However, after a day of tinkering and reading, I'm a bit stuck. My main use case is OpenVPN running directly from the R7800, so this has been my focus when starting.

For some context: I run a pihole on a dedicated Pi, have an Ubuntu server, some audio, a macbook and some streaming devices.

Two issues:

1. After starting OpenVPN, I can't connect to the web anymore. Seems like a DNS issue (it's always DNS), but I'm not knowledgeable enough yet to debug it.

Code:

2. After trying to get OpenVPN working I got flood with log entries on my pihole. I read this is a Microsoft service, but I have no Microsoft gear in my setup. I think either OpenVPN, DNScrypt or the adguard-dns addition in /etc/dnscrypt.con/. somehow caused this. However, reverting these options, or even installing from scratch hasn't solved it. It's poluting the logs, so it would be nice to get rid of it. :)

Curious for your advice!

For others facing the same issue.

Resetting the device and NVRAM as instructed by @kamoj in this post seems to have solved the msftncsi flood.

Code:
mtd erase netgear
nvram default
nvram commit
reboot

Now all there is left is the OpenVPN part.


EDIT: This seems not the case.

For the OpenVPN issue, have you tried to connect directly to an IP adresse instead of a domain name? Just to confirm it is DNS related.
If it is not DNS related, you might want to check the route on the router ip route

As it turns out it's something else: the moment I remove the Entware USB from the R7800, it stops contacting msftncsi.

@HELLO_wORLD good suggestion and will get back to you after reformatting the USB with a fresh install of Entware.

Are you using expressvpn?
If so, it could be the problem: look at the comments https://www.reddit.com/r/pihole/comments/e2x046
So I tried to netstat, as described in your link
Code:
sudo netstat -ptc | grep ip.addr
but functions seem to be limited in netstat on the router:

Code:
Options:
        -l      Display listening server sockets
        -a      Display all sockets (default: connected)
        -e      Display other/more information
        -n      Don't resolve names
        -r      Display routing table
        -t      Tcp sockets
        -u      Udp sockets
        -w      Raw sockets
        -x      Unix sockets

Do you have suggestions? If I understand correctly I'm looking to identify the processes which try to connect to www.msftncsi.com.

You should install netstat from Entware (opkg update && opkg install net-tools):

Thanks for your help, Netstat works now! However, I don't get desired results when using the commands used in the reddit post. All of this is new to me, but I'm learning as we go. Any thoughts?

1.
Code:
nslookup www.msftncsi.com

Non-authoritative answer:
www.msftncsi.com    canonical name = www.msftncsi.com.edgesuite.net.
www.msftncsi.com.edgesuite.net    canonical name = a1961.g2.akamai.net.
Name:    a1961.g2.akamai.net
Address: 104.110.240.233
Name:    a1961.g2.akamai.net
Address: 104.110.240.218

2.
Code:
netstat -ptc | grep 104.110.240
This returns nothing, the CLI simply keeps hanging.

However, whenever running the command it see the following entries in my PiHole log:

Running netstat -ptc withouth grep returns:

What you see in the pihole is IPv6 related…

Maybe try this : netstat -4ptcl or netstat -4ptca
-4
to filter ony IPv4 and -l to see the server connections (or -a to see all the connections) on the router?

That worked, I found at least one microsoft proces, but killing them didn't stop the msftncsi calls. Do you see anything out of the ordinary here?

What you see in the pihole is IPv6 related…

Maybe try this : netstat -4ptcl or netstat -4ptca
-4
to filter ony IPv4 and -l to see the server connections (or -a to see all the connections) on the router?

That worked, I found at least one microsoft proces, but killing them didn't stop the msftncsi calls. Do you see anything out of the ordinary here?

The Microsoft one is from the Samba Daemon… Probably not at the origin of your problem.

Did you try to compare with and without VPN enabled to see if it is related to that?

I did, without luck. I guess I'll try with a clean USB stick to see if it makes a difference.

So your problem is probably different from the one in the link I posted as for them it was related to the VPN.

Before reinstalling everything, can you check what you have installed with Entware? It has to be some kind of service you installed that resided in /opt/…
You could use that command to see what is running from Entware:

Sure, the -a switch seems not to work though..

Ah yes, ps is not aliased to ps-procps-ng by default, I apologize again…

Just run this command instead:
Bash:
/usr/bin/ps-procps-ng -aux | grep -e /opt/

Ok, this is normal…
/opt/xagent/xagent is not from Entware, but it is ReadyCloud in the firmware, so it seems you have nothing running from Entware.

When you don't have the USB plugged, you don't have the msftncsi flood.
I suspect then it is not related to Entware, but to the fact there is a USB drive or not, so something native in the firmware… So maybe Samba after all, or something related to ReadyShare?

I have a USB, so I will see if I have such calls to msftncsi

EDIT: I do have a few requests in the range 104.0.0.0/8, but it seems normal (requests from devices on LAN) and very little… No flood, so I am not sure what is doing that for you…
