Recently, we've noticed that some of our users are facing problems to surf the internet after getting connected through OpenVPNinja. This happens due to a DNS problem. Just to you understand, DNS is a protocol within the set of standards for how computers exchange data on the Internet and on many private networks. Its basic job is to turn a user-friendly domain name - like "http://ninjasareawesome.com" - into an Internet Protocol (IP) address like 188.8.131.52 that computers use to identify each other on the network. It's like your computer's GPS for the Internet.
Some governments firewall or other nefarious net ne'er-do-well - breaks your internet by telling you the URL you're looking for is at an invalid IP address - and in the end is probably sending your browser to an IP address in the local government instead of to facebook, youtube, Hulu or other awesome web-based services you want to use.
To fix this problem, you just need to install the patch attached located at the bottom of the website. Also, the troubleshooting below helps you step by step how to install it.
