When I connect VPN via NetworkManager, I can't access resources by domain name. But it's ok using IP. Seems like NetworkManager isn't updating resolve.conf with VPN nameservers. I've visited and tried this and this

None of them work. I installed a 13.04 server edition then upgraded to 13.10. I then run apt-get install ubuntu-desktop --no-recommends to change it to desktop version. After that install network manager etc by hand. My NetworkManager.conf



My /etc/network/interfaces content

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto em1
iface em1 inet dhcp

My /etc/resolv.conf which is a link to ../run/resolvconf/resolv.conf (and I have run dpkg-reconfigure resolveconf and answered yes.

What else do I need to do?
