Need some help/advise from the pros....
I installed pihole a few months ago, and loved it.....
then I saw openvpn integration and jumped into the bandwagon immediately...... however..... my network is not longer piholed...I'll try and explain:
* cable modem/router with DNS that can be edited (since it work before) and routed to pihole raspberry pi IP, and OpenDNS.... since it allows for up to 3 (maybe this is part of the issue?)
* small network of a couple of windows and mac machines, as well as a few other devices: cell, tablets, etc...connected by wired and wifi
* raspberry pi B running pihole (I should upgrade soon, dont freak out ) I installed pihole a few months/weeks ago and then installed openvpn as per the instructions on the wiki: here
I still have the DNS mapped to my current piholed/raspberry device
when I connect through the OpenVPN on my cell, everything seems to be piholed and blocked as it should be (btw: Im able to see all my lan/wlan devices if I'm, lets say, my cell connection away from home)
When I connect through any of the lan/wlan computers around the home, it seems like Im not getting protected by the pihole, I figure if I connect through the openvpn connection I get protected by testing.... but then..... not sure I want to do that every time.... is that the way its supposed to work? am I missing something?
What I would like:
-connect from my cell while away, lets say airport wi-fi and be protected by my pihole-openvpn (not important if i connect to the other devices or not, which I read under the wiki that can be easily changed)
-connect from lan/wlan devices around the home without having to connect to the openvpn and be protected by the pihole
