First off, I've seen many many forum posts about this (I'll estimate 30) and I've tried various fixes and nothing has worked for me so far.
I followed the openVPN server setup tutorial and got both the OpenVPN server and client work and am able to connect to my openVPN server from outside my network, I'm also able to access my router page (192.168.1.1) and ping computers on my local network.
The problem arises when I try to browse the web (yes, I want all traffic to go through the VPN including web traffic), when I go to google, it tells me "DNS lookup failed" and pretty much any other website will say the same.
Here are my settings:
- Use internal DNS is checked.
- Nothing else is checked and everything else is left stock.

Interface type: tun
