#378 closed Bug / Defect (notabug)

DNS push not working on iOS7

Reported by: oliver.neumann Owned by:
Priority: blocker Milestone:
Component: OpenVPN Connect Version:
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:


Reproducable on iPhone 5s with iOS7:

Our Sophos UTM pushes DNS config with the follwing command:

[dhcp-option] [DNS] [XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX]

VPN connection itself works but no DNS, so only IP-based actions are successful. DNS is not set.

With iOS6 it was not problem at all.

Problem has been reported in some forum threads:

I'm using OpenVPN Connect 1.0.4 (latest in Apple Store)

Reproducible on all of our iPhones and iPads running iOS 7, whether using cellular or foreign WiFi? connections.
Our WatchGuard? XTM pushes DNS config with the same command as the original poster.

iPhone 4S, 5
iPad 2, 3, 4, and Air

OpenVPN Connect version 1.0.4

Settings work fine on Windows and Android devices, so far as we've experienced.

For us it works now. Was a additional setting (domain search), which needed to be disabled (or left blank).

Since we did this, VPN is working fine.

This workaround does not seem to adversely affect the behavior of windows/android clients on my managed systems.
