please help me to understand where is the problem
I am using windscribe paid vpn service
and trying to configure my openwrt router as VPN client
I can say I am succeed in configuring in both cases as openVPN and as WireGuard
I used this instruction for example
but problem is ` when I am putting DNS IP address in wan config (10.255.255.3 for windscribe)
and apply changes it starts work my devices connected to openwrt start using vpn
but after reboot of openwrt WireGuard (openvpn havesame issue) connection goes down
nothing helps until I don't delete DNS ip , then reboot, then again put dns ip to wan
and it starts work perfect until next reboot
instead of wireguard I used openvpn but it stop working after reboot - same problem after adding DNS
I tryed to add DNS ip to other interfaces
also to lan interface
somebody help me to understand whats going on
adding dns ip to client side and removing from wan helps
but I dont think it is nice and right way to do it
it is better get settings from openwrt
If the VPN is supposed to be up 24/7, you can use the DHCP to announce the DNS using option 6, as in https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/base-system/dhcp_configuration#dhcp_options
I sure hope the DHCP's only running on the LAN side.
The lan interface-> Advanced settings
uci add_list dhcp.lan.dhcp_option="6,10.255.255.3"
or like this? because from luci only when I add DNS to wan it works until reboot
uci add_list dhcp.wan.dhcp_option="6,10.255.255.3"
thank you both
I am trying 2 days to figure out
and also tried adding dns IP to LAN
just now once again tried and it works !!
