OpenVPN kills my internet connection

Post by DeSpell » 2018/05/29 10:11:31

I am using CentOS 7. I tried everything with iptables and firewall-cmd commands i found on the internet but none of these seems to work.
I run this command to turn on the VPN: openvpn /etc/openvpn/ovpn_tcp/SOME_SERVER.nordvpn.com.tcp.ovpn but then my internet connection stops working. I can provide you logs or whatever, please help me, thanks in advance.

Most VPNs default to sending all traffic via the VPN and need to be told to use what's known as split-tunnel mode. Since you gave no details about how you configured it, it's impossible to tell if you have done this.

Yes right, my bad.. Just follow the instructions on NordVPN website. I run command "openvpn /etc/openvpn/ovpn_tcp/SOME_SERVER.nordvpn.com.tcp.ovpn" and when i try ping google.com nothing happens. I just don't want to random type iptables - like funvctions without reason. Has anyone solve this for sure? I also allowed the openvpn service through firewall-cmd command.
