Question NetworkManager-Openvpn connects successfully but no internet access.

Using the latest edition (13.04) of sabayon I can't get internet access using Networkmanager-Openvpn. This worked in the past before I reformatted sabayon.

I think it might be some kind of dns problem. When I load a page, lets say google, then connect to my vpn and reload, I can reach google and the IP belongs to my vpn.
If I don't load it with my default ISP first it can't find google. It has worked with this exact same configuration before. I've googled the problem and I give up...

Any help is appreciated.

I checked the log and apparantly it was because I had the wrong cipher selected.

Another concern I've found while tinkering with this is: On the vpn tab after I save the vpn connection the CA certicifate is no longer set when I re open the settings. When I check the /var/log/messages it says "WARNING: No server certificate verification method has been enabled. See for more info"

Does this mean the ca.crt I provided is not being used? How can I fix this? What does it mean?

NVM I got it. Im a noob.
