Android OpenVPN Connect + Local DNS lookups not working

Reported by: vpnreguser Owned by: OpenVPN Inc.
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: OpenVPN Connect Version: OpenVPN Connect for Android
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


Please refer to the Android OpenVPN Connect forum link for more details:

To summarize, after a server crashed I had to upgrade to a newer OpenVPN server. Because of increased security I also had to upgrade the client's configuration files as well. After getting a successful connection, I was unable to access any local systems by name. I am running a local DNS. I am able to access local system's by their respective ip address. After much trial and error (again see the link), I came across OpenVPN for Android. Since it accepts OVPN files, I thought I would give it a try. After importing the same OPVN client file as the one used on OpenVPN Connect, local DNS worked. I tried different programs as well as a dig app to retrieve different records and they all worked. This leads me to believe there may be a bug in the Android OpenVPN Connect. Thanks.
