Resolved hosts in ovpn file

Recommended Posts

Hi all,
I would like to add a couple of resolves hosts in the ovpn file. If I understood correctly if I have any internal hosts (name.local that resolves to my 192.168.1.x internal host) and use the Air client for Android I will not be able to resolve it.

I was looking at the config generator and the only thing I found is in the advanced settings there is a checkbox for “resolved hosts in .ovpn file”, but I’m not sure if a) this will do what I need and b) what’s the syntax to use.

 I only need to add a couple, so I wouldn’t mind typing in the online form.

any help is welcome, thank you.

You could try enabling Custom DNS and enter 10.4.0.1 and your local DNS server separated by a comma.

This resolves AirVPN server FQDNs (server.airvpn.org for example) to IPs and writes the IPs into the profile. This is not what you need.

Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

Thanks for your suggestion. I don’t see an option to list custom DNS in the config generator here on airvpn

Not the config generator, but the Eddie app, in Settings. :)
