Re: Disconnecting VPN breaks DNS

Having the same issue when I use PPTP but also when using L2TP over IPSEC, somehow Mint doesn't restore / reload the orignal settings for DNS. Indeed disabling WiFi and re-enabling is the quick fix but it's a little annoying bug. Bug confirmed on 5 different LM 19 / 19.1 machines.

I can't wait to see how the forced automatic updates work out. I can just picture someone involved in an intense phase of their favorite game and being treated to a popup stating: "Sorry, but you must now restart your system to configure updates". Well, it will be the opposite of forced manual upda...
