VPN DHCP Errors - Should I be concerned?
General VPN Support
I just noticed that in my Win10 event logs, I see this error come on every time my computer restarts or when VPN connects. Should I be concerned about this? Thanks
I'm not sure exactly why or what's happening precisely, but PIA doesn't actually use a DHCP server to assign the IP address. It's just OpenVPN trickery in the TAP driver to simulate Windows getting an IP from a DHCP server but it's entirely local. Since we use a TUN, I imagine OpenVPN just denies DHCP renews so Windows keeps the IP address.
So, I'd say it's most likely harmless.
Sorry for the late reply, but thank you I will ignore those events.
