DNS problems in CentOS 6.5

I am facing an issue with DNS resolving in my droplet. I can’t ping even Google’s DNSes:

[root@xenonon etc]# ping PING ( 56(84) bytes of data. ^C — ping statistics — 5 packets transmitted, 0 received, 100% packet loss, time 4814ms

Here is content of my /etc/resolv.conf:

[root@xenonon etc]# cat /etc/resolv.conf nameserver nameserver nameserver nameserver

When I try to install something by yum, I am getting following error:

[root@xenonon etc]# yum install traceroute Loaded plugins: fastestmirror Setting up Install Process Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile Could not retrieve mirrorlist error was 14: PYCURL ERROR 6 - “Couldn’t resolve host ‘’” Error: Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: base

What is going on?

Thanks, Maksym.

Problem has been solved by disabling “redirect-gateway” option in my server’s OpenVPN configuration.
