Pihole + Wireguard from Marketplace: keep access to LAN


I have a droplet with Pihole + Wireguard from Marketplace. Also i have a lot of services in my local network. In Wireguard for Windows i unchecked “Block untunneled traffic” and i can reach all my local services as always. But not with iPhone or Android:

  • on iphone i can reach local services via IP and port, but not via local domain name. For example, “jellyfin.home” is the domain name for; local DNS server for this is;
  • on Android i have no access to my LAN at all.

Of course, if i disable the VPN everything works fine. There is no difference between “DNS only VPN” and “Full VPN”. I tried to regenerate configs with “”, no luck.

So, how can i fix it?

Hello, @evgeniydoctor

It is weird that on your iOS device only the local domain name is not working (this might be related to DNS, as it’s trying to resolve the domain name and not picking up the local DNS).

The Android device does not seem to pick up the local network, I’ll recommend you check if it’s actually connected to the correct network. You should not have a different experience from the iOS device.
