    I'm using 11.04 (Natty) and have just followed the instructions on
    configuring a vpn tunnel as posted in this tutorial (

    I can connect to the vpn service but once connected, I can not browse.
    I keep getting dns errors.
    I added opendns and google server addresses in the "advanced" settings
    for the vpn connection but this did not seem to help.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    thank you.

  2. Hello,

    x34460 a écrit :
    Check the output of
    ifconfig -a or ip addr (interface configuration)
    route -n or ip route (routing table)
    cat /etc/resolv.conf (DNS configuration)
    iptables-save (firewall rules)

    Test the result of
    basic IP connectivity (ping -n, traceroute -n)
    DNS queries (dig, nslookup, host)
