If you’re having problems connected to websites after you’ve connected to the VPN, you should try updating your DNS servers.

1. Go to the Control Panel by searching for “Control Panel” in your search bar near the Start button.

2. Click on Network and Sharing Center.

3. Click on your network connection.

4. Click on Properties

5. Highlight the Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) option, and then click Properties.

6. Select the ‘Use the following DNS server addresses’ option and enter and Click OK afterward. (Alternate DNS servers can be found here)

It’s probably a good idea to flush the DNS resolver cache and web browser caches so that your new DNS configuration settings take immediate effect. We’ll help you do it.

Just like before in Step 1, use your search bar to find “Command Prompt.”
Right-click the application and select Run as Administrator
Type     ipconfig /flushdns     then press enter.

Now, restart your connection to the GhostPath VPN server of your choice.
