    What is name for package needed for DNS leak protection by OpenVPN in Fedora?

    Hi. There is a native option by OpenVPN to achieve a DNS leak protection called:

    update-resolve-conf

    it is, in fact, a script used in this way:

    script-security 2
    up /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf
    down /etc/openvpn/update-resolv-conf

    when I tried this command, I received error message: no such script ! It seem that this script is existing as a package that should be downloaded from Fedora repositories ..........

    Any one know about this issue ?
    Fedora 26 X64 bit Cinnamon edition on Lenovo ThinkPad e550 with Intel core i7 5500 CPU @ 2.40 GH X 2, RAM = 8 GB, HHD = 1 TB, Hybrid VGA (Intel Corporation HD Graphic 5500 + Radeon R7 M265 2GB)

    I don't know the answer, and I'm not on Fedora right now, but you can use dnf's provides option to see if it's part of a repo's package.

    http://srobb.net/yumprovides.html is a page I did on it. It was written during the time of yum, just sub dnf for yum.

    It would be dnf provides */update-resolve-conf

    I didn't see it on CentOS-7. You can also do rpm -ql openvpn which will tell you all the files provided when you install openvpn. (That's a lower case letter L). Again, on CentOS, it doesn't seem as if it provides that update-resolve-conf. (I also wound up checking on Fedora, ArchLinux and FreeBSD and I don't see it as something supplied with openvpn.

    I do see that Fedora and CentOS have something like (This is from CentOS)

    /usr/share/doc/openvpn-2.4.4/contrib/pull-resolv-conf
    /usr/share/doc/openvpn-2.4.4/contrib/pull-resolv-conf/client.down
    /usr/share/doc/openvpn-2.4.4/contrib/pull-resolv-conf/client.up
