I have been struggling with this issue for a number of years and still can't resolve it.
I have set up pfsense (at home) on a HP micro. I have set it up as per https://support.nordvpn.com/Connectivity/Router/1620787982/pfSense-2-4-5-setup-with-NordVPN.htm
I have setup nordvpn as per : https://support.nordvpn.com/Connectivity/Router/1620787982/pfSense-2-4-5-setup-with-NordVPN.htm
I can confirm that I am behind a vpn, and all works well :)
Sadly I can not get Amazon prime video or Netflix working through the VPN
(I am try to watch it in the UK and I have a UK subscription).
I thought that I should create a FW rule for a number of devices to bypass nordVPN.
I created an alias, and created a FW rule to bypass NordVPN.
When I check with whoismyIP I can confirm that it is bypassing NordVPN.
However Netflix and Amazon Prime do not work!
If I switch off NORDVPN from Status/OpenVPN Netflix and Amazon Prime work!
I am not sure why - any ideas?
The only other thing I noticed is , with NordVPN running, if I run DNSleaktest It comes up with Clouvider Limited, but when I switch it off it comes up with nothing! Is that related?
Is this a gateway issue? If so how do I control it?
I have some IT experience but am not a network expert!
And finally this is nothing to do with upgrading from 2.4.4 to 2.4.5
@drsuki can you paste your rules for this? and how your configuring it?
I would want to see your vpn configuration, firewall rules, gw etc.
If i understand this correctly, i have a similar setup.
My TV goes directly out of the WAN so bypasses Nordvpn so i can connect the amazon prime app. All other devices are routed through my vpn.
this guide explains it pretty well
Hi, I am not at my machine at the moment, but I found out what this issue was.
In the 'General DNS Resolver Options' , Outgoing Network Interfaces
is set to nordVPN (as per the instructions). However if you set this to WAN, it appears to work.
To be honest I am not sure what the 'real' exposure is.
