Openvpn not being able to connect

Hello I am currently in the Starting Point the Meow challenge machine. I am able to download the openvpn file from the instructions and I have executed the command sudo openvpn vpnfile.ovpn. The problem after that command, I am stuck with a loop of error that it was not able to resolve the host address something… Please see below:

2022-10-08 21:08:08 RESOLVE: Cannot resolve host address: edge-eu-starting-point-1-dhcp.hackthebox.eu:1337 (Temporary failure in name resolution)
2022-10-08 21:08:18 RESOLVE: Cannot resolve host address: edge-eu-starting-point-1-dhcp.hackthebox.eu:1337 (Temporary failure in name resolution)

2022-10-08 21:08:18 Restart pause, 80 second(s)

I am stuck with this please someone guide me I’m just starting out with the platform.

Much appreciated thank you all.

It was my bad. My freshly installed Kali Linux machine does not have a properly configured DNS. I configured it to use google DNS and its working now.
