I have openvpn 2.1_rc7 running on ubuntu 8.04. I set up a user that has all traffic and dns pushed through the vpn.

On windows the vpn client works just fine, all traffic and dns requests are pushed through the vpn.

When I boot the windows pc with a live cd of ubuntu 8.04 and connect with vpn, the dns requests aren't pushed through the vpn.

I already added those two scripts that were supposed to update resolv.conf to my client config, still didn't work.
Code:
up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf

down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf
In fact if you look at the client output you don't see /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf being called on the dns ip 10.8.0.1, but you do see it called on the ip that is pushed to the client,
Code:
/etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf tun0 1500 1544 10.8.1.1 10.8.1.2 init
I'm wondering if this is a permissions issue. I start the client with "sudo openvpn anonUserPush.conf". Am I supposed to add in something for the update-resolv-conf script?

If I manually add the dns to resolv.conf my requests are pushed through the vpn.

Client output:
