Can not connect to VPN after manual disconnect and sleep mode

Post by dienasty13 »

Greetings all,

I have been having trouble connecting back to my VPN after putting computer to sleep. I read around and found that to be common, so I just leave the computer on. Now I have manually disconnected the VPN connection for certain websites that block such activity. Any way, this problem keeps being persistent with me and I have not found a solution yet. So, here I am hoping to learn a few things and get some expert help. :D

Closest solution I could find to my problem was by starting with the following command:

Code: Select all

$ sudo journalctl -b0 --no-pager -u NetworkManager.service 
--> It produced this result among others, but this result ERROR: Cannot ioctl TUNSETIFF tun0: Device or resource busy (errno=16)
and a internet search of the above error led me to the site below:

https://serverfault.com/questions/91131 ... y-errno-16


At this point I attempt the solution here and

Code: Select all

$ ps -A|grep openvpn 

Produces the below:
2241 ? 00:00:04 openvpn



Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)


**I am using Tunnel bear software and on the link below they talk about a DNS leak, but I do not find that to be the problem. Maybe a re-install is warrented**

Find out where Tunnelbear stores the client config file.
