another Noob question: accessing Sonarr et all via browser

Post by TWHH »

OK, so still greener than green with all this, so please provide any instructions on the assumption that I know nothing (which would be correct)

Have installed Sonarr, Radarr etc, and last night was able to access them via Chrome on my Mac and also Safari on my iPhone. I've since installed NordVPN client.

Since doing the NordVPN client (although the timing here could be coincidence..?) no web browser on my home network can connect with said applications. The browser page just hangs and then say it can't connect. I've checked the Pi's IP address on my router and it is the same as it was - 192.168....

Any ideas as to what might be causing this annoyance?

Many thanks in advance

@TWHH
you are using dietpi-vpn to connect to NordVPN? Or any other client?

@MichaIng
Can you have a look. I guess it's because of the killswitch being active

@Joulinar how do I find out?

:?

Pretty sure I downloaded the Nord client from Nord. I did check the Kill Switch and it was off

Perhaps I reflash the SD card and start again?

If I do what's the best way to connect my Pi with my Nord VPN account?

well if you installed the NordVPN client, it could be removed. But you would need to know what you installed ;)

Usually you could use dietpi-vpn script to connect to NordVPN. But I'm not sure if this will fix your issue. Personally I'm not using a VPN client and apps like Sonarr/Radarr

Just done this... there was no Nord software listed in the DietPi list, so not sure where I got it from previously

just use dietpi-vpn. No need to install something from software list

OK, so started from fresh.

Not connected VPN, but whatever browser I use is telling me that a connection to the IP Address that the Pi has can't be made.

Totally flummoxed :(
