OpenVPN Client Export Utility - use clients own DNS



  • Is it possible to use some parameters in the Advanced box in the Client Export Utility to make the clients to use their own DNS instead of using the pfSense DNS?



  • The Client Export utility doesn't include any DNS option in the client config.
    Presumably your server pushes DNS servers to the client. That can be avoided by unchecking "DNS Server enable" in the server settings.

    However, if you push the default route to the clients you have to ensure that the external DNS used by them is accessible over the vpn.

    Ah yeah, that's exactly what I wanted. Thanks!
    All the OpenVPN-server is used for is to reach the local network on the pfSense side, so no DNS is needed over the VPN.
