NordVPN not connected

Post by hansbl »

Hello,

First of all, I'm really new on Raspberry Pi/Dietpi. So, forgive me my ignorance.
I have the following issue, which is also discussed in the following thread, but I can't see a solution for me:

viewtopic.php?f=11&t=7214&p=23663&hilit=nordvpn#p23663

I can see my Raspberry Pi (with Pi-Hole) is connected with a NordVPN server if I do: dietpi_nordvpn
If I check my ipaddress it is still showing my own ipaddress.
I don't know what to do to find out what the problem is.

Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance.
Hans

Hi, can you give some explanation what does this mean. Where do you check what IP address?

on which device you are doing this check. On you computer or the DietPi device?

On dietpi run the following:

Code: Select all

ip -4 addr; ip -4 ro; ip -4 ru
and post here the output

Hello,

I am doing the check on my PC. My PC is connected to my router which uses the Raspberry Pi, with Pi Hole, as DNS.

Output:

Code: Select all

On your computer, you would need to set your DietPi device as Gateway. Currently your computer is still using your router to access the Internet

Thanks for your reaction, but that doesn't help.
According to the instructions from Pi Hole, the DNS can also be set in the router so that it is not neccessary to change the settings in all the connected devices.

keep away DNS pls. This has nothing to do on how you access the internet. DNS is just to perform name resolution.

Setting the RPi as gateway doesn't help. The problem still persists.
