Does that droplet creator have contact information of the person who created it and who maintains it? It’s not something the Pi-hole team made.

What was their response to your request for assistance?

they aren’t replied :frowning:

I have created new droplet in digitalocean and follow the and follow the pi hole official instructions at https://docs.pi-hole.net/guides/vpn/installation/ but the same problem faced pi-hole dns didn’t work outside of dns, i think i made some mistake during iptables, i just choose option 1 everything goes from tun0 is this ok or i just change the iptables rules??
