Anyone using with and ever run into an issue where connecting to Mullvad (wireguard) causes you to loose DNS?

When I configure NM to use dnsmasq, DNS fails while connected. It works fine disconnected. When I turn *off* dnsmasq for NM, everything works...

@nathand Is there a DNS server available inside the tunnel you're connecting to?

@nathand I haven't ran into it - but it makes sense depending on your DNS setup. If dnsmasq is acting as a caching server, the upstream resolvers might not accept traffic from your VPN's WAN IP. Another scenario is you need to (manually) set your resolver for use with Mullivad, which is 193.138.218.74. Normally that should be automatic after you connect, but stuff happens.
