comment OpenVPN: Not all DNS entries get pushed to clients from server. (dnsmasq)
But I'm sure it can be done in some way. I know it would be just easier to use an alternative URL while being within the VPN, but small things like that bug me :) There must be a switch in a config file that can force that redirect to happen in clients. Thanks though for your help!

Thank you for your reply. I have been thinking of the same thing, and have changed in the OpenVPN client config file the server URL to the external IP address of the server. So now it doesn't use server.foo.com and doesn't make a DNS lookup before connecting. However it still doesn't work. Same problem as before. Other URLs get resolved correctly to the VPN network (e.g. server2.foo.com), but not the main URL. Perhaps it remembers the IP and makes a reverse DNS lookup and saves the corresponding URL?
