Ok, so ive seen a few tutorials for setting up openvpn, but was having no luck getting a working connection. i managed to get a connection working by importing an .ovpn file and letting ubuntu do it all for me, adding password and uname myself. I now have a working connection but am unable to view sites like piratebay, so its obviously not actually working. Where could i be going wrong?
ip route with VPN connection is:
default via 10.12.0.117 dev tun0 proto static metric 50 default via 192.168.1.254 dev wlan0 proto dhcp metric 600 10.12.0.1 via 10.12.0.117 dev tun0 proto static metric 50 10.12.0.117 dev tun0 proto kernel scope link src 10.12.0.118 metric 50 169.254.0.0/16 dev wlan0 scope link metric 1000 [VPN_IP] via 192.168.1.254 dev wlan0 proto static metric 600 192.168.1.0/24 dev wlan0 proto kernel scope link src 192.168.1.70 metric 600 192.168.1.254 dev wlan0 proto static scope link metric 600
