…vpn is active, but I am not able to access any of the other softwares until I remove openvpn.
So you connect to an external VPN service but then what is not working? You are not reaching your webservices, hosted on the device?
Also not from local network?
Please provide some more info.
After setting up the vpn, I am not able to access any of the other services I installed EXCEPT transmission. Even stuff I setup in a docker is not accessible. I am on a local network. Im able to ssh into the pi just fine but any other service is not responding. Even though in the dietpi-services they all show as active.
Have a look into this topic, probably you have the killswitch on
Thank you to all the contributors DietPI! I have been having a blast with DIET PI 8 and my RPI 3B.
I have one issue I am unable to figure out and need some help with is to be able to access the sonarr’s web interface in a browser once diet-VPN is switched on.
I have set up my RPI to connect via wifi to the internet.
I have set up a client-side VPN using a custom ovpn file. I have switched on both AutoStart and killswitch.

Yes if activate, our killswitch will block nearly every access from local network
shouldnt the killswitch only apply on connection loss? I am connected so the killswitch shouldnt be active?
We allow SSH connection, even if killswitch has been selected. All other connections should be rejected.
Right, but shouldnt the killswitch only turn on if connection to the vpn becomes disconnected?
The current implementation of the killswitch blocks every traffic not passing the tunnel
The point of the killswitch is to reject any traffic which doesn’t go through the tunnel, to prevent leaks. It is not the most elegant way, but it is considered the most secure.
