I would like to connect to my new VPN (HMA) with openVPN and Network Manager on Ubuntu 14.04LTS. I can establish a connection with a VPN server but I can't use Web browsers ("Address not found"). Also I can ping IP addresses but I can't ping domain names.

  • You might want to edit your question to explain the exact problem you get when you try to browse from a browser :) – Seth Jan 3 '16 at 22:06
  • Browsers I know aren't explicit, they just say "Address not found" or something like that ^^ but you're right I'll add some symptoms that I experienced. – CravateRouge Jan 3 '16 at 22:19

The issue is DNS settings so you can try this

If it didn't work you can modify /etc/resolv.conf and add nameserver "DNSaddress"

But resolv.conf is a dynamic file so to add this line permanently:

sudo nano /etc/resolvconf/resolv.conf.d/tail

and add your DNS servers like this nameserver "DNSadress".

I hope this post could help others.
