Linux Mint says that  VPN connection has been successfully established but I cant access any websites and pinging websites shows 100% packet loss.

I can only guess that you used Network Manager to connect, but to be sure, please post you full OpenVPN logs into spoiler tags (how-to in signature).

While you're at it, you could try a ping to

Not much info to go by. I'd start by disabling any firewalls (iptables, firewalld) to make sure nothing is getting in your way.


make sure you can resolve DNS from the servers listed in /etc/resolv.conf


ifconfig to see how your nics, especially tun0 are configured


netstat -nr to see your routes
