    I am running Kali Linux x64 in a VM on Windows 7 Ultimate.

    I can not go to websites and when I ping them it says: "Name or service not found"

    When I ping the IP of sites it's fine and when i ping 8.8.8.8 it works fine.

    However Kali Linux seems to be having a hard time resolving the DNS of websites.

    I am running on a VPN with P2P but Windows 7 is not having the same issue: IE me being here now. The VPN is running on windows but it still effects my VM's IP.

    I have no antivirus interfering with my VM.

    I have changed IPs to non P2P and it works fine until it randomly cuts off requesting I use a P2P servers, when I switch to P2P servers I can not resolve DNSs.

    Anyone know what's going on?

    I used /etc/resolv.conf and made changes there to get it working again!
