PfSense and NordVPN



  • I used to have PIA vpn and never has any issues.  now trying NordVPN and can not make it run on ubuntu 16.04 VM

    Here is some info:

    rebooted system w/o VPN connected

    sudo cat /etc/resolv.conf
    nameserver 103.86.96.100
    nameserver 103.86.99.100

    (those ^ were recommended by NordVPN )

    ping google.com => OK

    nslookup

    google.com
    Server:        103.86.96.100
    Address:    103.86.96.100#53

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name:    google.com
    Address: 172.217.25.46

    Connected to us1221 NordVPN server TCP

    ping google.com
    ping: unknown host google.com

    nslookup

    google.com
    ;; Got recursion not available from 103.86.96.100, trying next server
    Server:        103.86.99.100
    Address:    103.86.99.100#53

    ** server can't find google.com: REFUSED

    ????

    =================

    Wonder if anybody had experienced this and what was the resolution?

    Thx



  • How is pfSense involved in this, and what does it have to do with firewalling?  If this is an issue configuring pfSense with OpenVPN, there is a forum for that.



  • you are right I will move to vpn forum, my hope is that there is a pfSense user who ran and solved similar problem, thx.
