but with the output dropped in iptables it doesn’t work
i decided not to use tethering right now, it doesn’t work every time, i have difficulties to get it working with my iptable rules and I could just use the vpn client on my laptop which would have the advantage that i can use it when I’m not at home
And that’s with /etc/resolv.conf containing the line
no, it seems to use what’s in /etc/resolv.conf
if i put 22.214.171.124 it uses 126.96.36.199
would it be stupid to put 10.8.0.1 in /etc/resolv.conf? wouldn’t that send dns requests through the tunnel?
i tried it and it doesn’t collide with the output drop and gives me:

You should re-read previous posts, including #8 and #15.
ok sorry, i’m a little confused…
am I right to assume that when I put 10.8.0.1 in /etc/resolv.conf all dns requests got through the tunnel (and I only can send dns requests if tun0 is up)? what DNS would be seen e.g by a website?
Correct. So no DNS is possible at system startup, for example.
ok and which dns servers am I using then? the vpn’s or the ones i set in “myosmc/networks”?
ok, that’s good i think, i leave it like that.
Thank you so very much for your help and especially for patience with me
