Subject description: VPN DNS Leaks in TahrPup
 

New to PuppyLinux in general, so forgive me if this is a simple issue or if this post is in the wrong category. I searched the forum a few times and didn't see this question asked anywhere else.

Using Tahrpup and OpenVPN 2.3.2 installed from the Ubuntu repos, I'm seeing DNS leaks while connected. I have my ovpn connection files setup to use the update-resolv-conf script to prevent this as follows:

Code:
script-security 2
up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf
down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf


This configuration works without leaks in Ubuntu, but not in Puppy. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas what the issue might be?

I posed the same question in the puppy hex chat and was asked to try running OpenVPN as Spot. Doing so allows me to log in, but crashes once a connection is attempted (with a permissions error). This was semi-expected behavior bc even in Ubuntu I have to run OpenVPN with sudo.

Thanks!
