Pi hole installed with openvpn using the official guide.
Removed the “push “redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp”” so that only DNS traffic will be routed via the tunnel.
When I do this,
- ads are being blocked
- websites are being resolved
But google play store will NOT let me download ANY app.
However, If I redirect all traffic through the tunnel, everything works fine (and play store will let me download apps)
I have tested this in the following scenarios and everytime I have had the same issue:
Setup 1) pi hole + openvpn on same server on VPS
setup 2) pi hole + openvpn on different servers connected via private networks on VPS
setup 3) pi hole + openvpn in my home network.
When routing only DNS, Pi hole works perfectly and allows me to do everything including download apps from the google play store
Unable to download apps from the google play store. It gets stuck on “Downloading” See attached screenshot:
