Default [Q] No internet traffic when connected to VPN on hellfire kitkat

I'm running HellFire version 11.0 HellFire KitKat 2.8 stable on my VZ SGS3.

When I connect to my PIA account their open vpn app I can not connect to the internet. At first I thought it might just be a DNS problem but I can't even ping google by IP address. (

I did some searching and it seems like this is a problem with kitkat but then I found another site which I can't link which has perfect success with kitkat and a vpn, specifically my VPN service.

Anybody have any insight into this?
