There is an OpenVPN server running on a Debian and it pushes a DNS in the server config file:
push "dhcp-option DNS 18.104.22.168"
Is there an option to allow the users to change that DNS servers on the client side?
Here is the catch, the openvpn server must push a DNS because otherwise many OpenVPN clients will not be able to open web pages until the manually set DNS servers in system's network settings.
My goal is to automatically apply a default DNS server to not-technically-skilled users, while also allow skilled computer users to set their own DNS servers.
Note that simply changing DNS settings on the PC while the 'push "dhcp-option DNS 22.214.171.124"' option is active on the openvpn server, does nothing. The DNS pushed by the server remains regardless of the local DNS settings.
OpenVPN server config:
# cat /etc/openvpn/openvpn.conf server 10.186.35.0 255.255.255.0 port 1194 proto udp dev tun ca ca.crt cert server.crt key server.key dh dh1024.pem ifconfig-pool-persist ipp.txt #push "route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0" #push "redirect-gateway" push "redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp" push "dhcp-option DNS 126.96.36.199" push "dhcp-option DNS 188.8.131.52" keepalive 10 120 comp-lzo user nobody group users persist-key persist-tun status openvpn-status.log verb 3 script-security 3 auth-user-pass-verify /etc/openvpn/auth-chap via-env client-cert-not-required duplicate-cn management 127.0.0.1 5119 script-security 3 system username-as-common-name client-connect /etc/openvpn/scripts/clientconnect.sh client-disconnect /etc/openvpn/scripts/clientdisconnect.sh log-append /var/log/openvpn.log log /var/log/openvpn.log
