From wifi to ethernet on OVPN no more internet connection

Mon Apr 08, 2019 8:11 pm

Hello,
I installed ovpn on my Raspberry and it was working perfectly.
Then I disabled wifi and put an Ethernet cable.
Since this moment the ovpn connection doesn't allow internet. Local network connection is working. I can't ping 8.8.8.8 for example, it's just the internet not "forwarded". But the raspberry is connected to the internet.

I think this is a stupid problem, but just in the ssh/Linux like I have totally no idea where to look for.
Can someone point me in the right file to edit/check? Thank you!

Have you thought about using their support service at https://www.ovpn.com/en/contact

I would try them first.

This is a configuration issue in your pi not opvn. Did you give your pi a static ip address in dhcpcd.conf? If so you need to change which adapter is getting the static ip, wlan(wifi) or eth0(ethernet). If you didn't setup a static ip you should, your pi will get a different ip address on the wifi and the ethernet connection. Since you switched to ethernet did you make the appropriate changes to point ovpn in the rigjt direction?
