Hi,

my setup is a TL-R605 controlled by a OC200 (all FW up-to-date) and normal network works. I've setup now a VPN (VPN Server L2TP) to which I can connect using iOS, Android and Windows. The problem is only that the VPN connected machine gets 8.8.8.8 as a DNS server for the VPN connection which cannot be changed in the VPN Settings on the OC200. I have nowhere set 8.8.8.8 as a DNS. 

How to change that behavior?

 

Thanks and Kind Regards
Marco

@MarcoE check at your omada.tplinkcloud.com account if a primary DNS is set. To see it go dashboard->manage cloud access->wired networks->internet->Wan section->advanced settings

@xperiments DNS Server is set- but not to 8.8.8.8

In the meantime I got info from the support that right now 8.8.8.8 is hardcoded and it will be changed sometime in the future but they had not been able to tell me when. Really silly as the VPN connection is mainly for accessing resources on the intranet where the DNS from google is completely useless.

 

Kind Regards
Marco

@MarcoE @Fae I have the same issue, I was starting to think it actually was hard coded, now it has been confirmed, I guess I will wait until they code in the option to change the DNS from 8.8.8.8, actually when I change the DNS IP in my android device and connect, I get the ip reading the log, but the top DNS is 8.8.8.8 the second is the gateway IP and the third is my custom DNS ip...

@MarcoE So I was trying to address this as well when I stumbled upon this forum thread. Would love to see DNS to be configurable within the VPN configuration. It would make very much sense to be able to. One builds a VPN to be able to reach the resources at the other end of the tunnel. One would expect to be able to resolve the resources there as well.

@tansuk exactly. Now nearly one year is over- and nothing changed. From a support perspective I cannot recommend the devices.
