Thanks, I finally worked that out myself. Seems a lot of the issue I (thought ) I was having was because I couldn't get the gateway settings to stick on my linux laptop, seems it was easier (for once) on a windows box. Once I got that working things started to fall in to place (although im still not sure whether my DNS queries are being routed out over the VPN, and I'm not sure how to check!)

check on your DietPi device by doing at traceroute to Google dns or Quad9. This should show you the way how it's going

Code: Select all

traceroute 8.8.8.8
it might be needed to install traceroute before

Code: Select all

apt install traceroute
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team
