Hi, I followed the tutorial for OpenVPN deployment on Ubuntu 18.0.4, and I think I did it successfully step by step.
This one: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-set-up-an-openvpn-server-on-ubuntu-18-04

I did this to make my own VPN server to watch Disney plus, Hbo max, and Hulu plus.

I tried the DNS leak yesterday, and it returned the correct IP of my OpenVPN server.

Today I try again, and the DNS Leak test returned 2 IP addresses, the one for my OpenVPN server and my true public IP from my ISP.

Currently, the OpenVPN connection keeps disconnecting and can’t even keep the connection consistent on my Windows, Mac and iPhone.

Not to mention when I uploaded the ovpn file to my Asus router, there’s an exclamation mark indicating that there might be IP conflict.

I’m a total newbie when it comes to Linux and all these server things.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Hi there @yuomaru,

It sounds like it might be a configuration issue, what I could suggest in this case is to try out the OpenVPN 1-Click installation from the Marketplace here:


That way you would know that you have OpenVPN configured correctly.

Let me know how it goes!
