This post describes how to accept OpenVPN servers DNS push on Linux, OpenBSD, FreeBSD and some other POSIX-compliant OS when: resolvconf package OR openresolv package is installedOpenVPN is run directly (i.e. NOT through any OpenVPN GUI/wrapper such as network-manager)OpenVPN version is 2.1 or higherWarning: the specified "update-resolv-conf" script path refers to many Linux distributions and OpenVPN package installation, but NOT to all of them. Please check the correct path of the mentioned file before proceeding (for example: it could be /usr/share/openvpn instead of /etc/openvpn). If the script is not on your system, you'll need to create it. See the typical script here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/OpenVPN#DNS Important: in the same above linked page, note that if you have a system based on systemd you might need some important modifications: Add to your OpenVPN configuration file(s), either in field "Custom Directives" of the Configuration Generator or by editing the configuration directly, the following lines: script-security 2 up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf In this way update-resolv-conf will record the DNS push and through resolvconf or openresolv will modify the nameserver accordingly. When OpenVPN quits, update-resolv-conf restores the previous nameserver line(s). Kind regards
