Question

what the hell are you using opendns servers for?

they have a habit of blocking sites like the one i use frequently.

Makes VPN pointless really.

anonymous me ass!

might as well stay with the google dns servers you had before.

You are free to use any dns-server. Set your IP from dhcp to static and enter your favourite dns. I am fine with the TG dns servers ;)

 

yes ive tried that and torguards vpn clients seem to hijack the dns settings.

Hm... Sounds strange. I have no problems with my setup: Linux and Windows.

Are you sure that you changed the main network adapter? Are you using Viscosity? If so, try to copy the connection and enter your own setting(s). That should work ;)

well well... torguard is blocking some websites and others.

 

pitty that.

 

what else haven't they told us about?

 

oh well it was good while it lasted.

 

really can you trust them?

 

oh and using PPTP and using googles dns you can get around their blocking, for how long who knows?

I had to modify the Torguard DNS to Google DNS 8 dot 8.8.8 to get it to bypass the opendns blocks. Not really what I signed up for with a private VPN service but it seems to work now.

Just another victim of opendns frustating expirience. (( Openvpn is pushing it and I don't know how to avoid it or override these pesky dhcp-options.

I had this happen to me as well. Mostly I came here trying to figure out why my TG viscosity client was using google IPs for DNS. (Google logs EVERYTHING... this is not secure by any means....)

Can confirm I have been getting Open DNS blocks on some servers aswell. Using TG Viscosity client problems only surfaced within the last couple of days or so.

Google Dns has the same policy as opendns, they both hold logs for maximum 48 hours i believe.

 

what servers do you get opendns blocks on ?
