#StackBounty: #networking #network-manager #dns #vpn OpenConnect can ping but can't resolve company websites

Bounty: 50

Using network-manager-openconnect & network-manager-openconnect-gnome I have set-up a Palo-Alto Networks GlobalProtect VPN to connect to my company network.

This works fine and I can access all internal company websites. However I would like this VPN to only be active for company domains and addresses so I’ve tried setting up routes like this
Route configuration
But when I apply these changes and connect to the VPN I can’t navigate to any of the company pages. When I try I get a This site can't be reached with DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN error in chromium. Oddly enough I can ping the IP addresses of these sites. Just the IP’s, domains do not work.

This brought me to believe that there’s a problem with DNS resolving so I tried adding the DNS server addresses to the DNS field and switching Automatic to off but that did not help.

What could I do to diagnose this issue? I feel like I am close to have it working but I am stuck.
