NordVPN enabled = no access to samba etc.

Post by ohgodnotagain »

I am unable to access a samba share or webgui (syncthing, transmission) when NordVPN is enabled. Access is possible when the VPN is disabled.
SSH access is possible in both conditions.

Hi,

did you activated killswitch? If I'm not mistaken we explisitly allow SSH connection only once killswitch has been activated.
Pls let us know if a solution is working. This could help others if they hit by similar situation. Your DietPi Team

I did activate the killswitch, but the issue isn't with SSH. SSH is working perfectly.

The problem is with access to transmission and syncthing webgui, and access via the samba server to a folder on a usb stick. Accessing the webgui & server isn't possible until I disable the VPN.

Well I did not told that SSH is having issues, as it is the service we allow only ;)
Therefore it's working

The challenge is, that our killswitch is blocking all other access. Just have a look to this forum post viewtopic.php?p=37404#p37404
