IKEv2 VPN Unable to goto DuckDuckGo.

Im very new to watchguard. I noticed that while being connected to a vpn using the IKEv2 I am denied access going to duckduckgo search page.
I looked at the firewall status where it shows all the trtaffic being allowed or denied, and I seen it show allowed for My vpn IP and duckduckgo's IP.

Why on earth would this be getting blocked?

    Works for me, using a T20 with V12.8.

    Are you using a HTTPS proxy ?
    If so, perhaps you really don't have every allow or proxy strip option enabled on your HTTPS proxy action.

    There appears to be some https proxies but I do not see anything that has duckduck in their settings. Its very strange. Maybe it has something to do with my vpn connection in linux. If I connect to the vpn thru a windows vm, I am able to visit the duck.

    From your Linux setup - I assume that you can get to other Internet sites without issues.

    At the moment, I am seeing substantial packet loss (66.7%) at be-8-0.ibr01.atl31.ntwk.msn.net using WhatsUP Visual Traceroute.
    And very high latency from devices on *.ntwk.msn.net. Looks like a MSN network issue at this time.
    In spite of these issues, I can bring up the duckduckgo.com web site quickly on my Windows PC.

    Are you always seeing duckduckgo.com down from your Linux device and up from Windows ?
    If so, could well be your Linux setup which is somehow the cause.

    By the way, HTTPS proxy action settings can apply to any HTTPS site allowed by that policy, and cause one or more of them to not work properly, without a specific IP addr or FQDN being specified on the proxy policy or in the proxy action.

    Yes it indeed seems to be an issue with my linux implementation. I noticed when connecting to the vpn I am getting no updated route table. This would make sense to me if no sites worked, but most still do, but at least I narrowed it down to my host and not the vpn.
