I apologize in advance for such a (I hope) simple problem. I'm trying to start Airvpn on Lunix using config file and the terminal per the instructions in the "how to." It runs, then the last line on the terminal is "Initialization sequence completed." It hangs there with internet dead, and never does anything else. If I ctl. C, it continues and terminates whatever it was doing. I've tried this on several systems with the same result.

 

My question is, is there something else I have to do? OpenVPN is installed, is there anything else that has to be there? I'm doing this because there seems to be no other way to start Airvpn on KaOS. Below is the terminal printout. I know this shows that I only gave it less then a minute, but prior attempts on several systems showed that it would never do anything.

 

Thanks,

 

Pete

Hello,

 

the log is fine but shows that you don't take care of DNS push, Under GNU/Linux OpenVPN does not handle the DNS push from the server, so an option to consider is that your system queries DNS servers that are inaccessible from the VPN (typically ISP DNS which accept queries only from inside the ISP network).

 

Please check your /etc/resolv.conf file. Also consider that you can run Eddie, the free and open source Air software: it will take care of the DNS push.

 

Without Eddie, some methods to accept the DNS push under GNU/Linux are described here: https://airvpn.org/topic/9608-how-to-accept-dns-push-on-linux-systems-with-resolvconf

 

Kind regards

Thank you for your reply. Usually I do run Eddie, but was hoping to be able to go directly through openvpn without the app.

Hello!

 

If it makes you feel any better, Eddie is "just" a wrapper for OpenVPN and if you use it, you'll get access to the Network Lock feature too .
