Why My internet stopped working after connect with NordLayer VPN Ubuntu 20.04?

be flag

I have faced an issue after connecting NordLayer VPN. Once I connect with Nordlayer VPN, My Internet stopped working and only accessed VPN content only via CLI.

If I go to the browser and search for anything, it will not work, and seems like the internet connection is down. If I disconnect with VPN, everything is working fine in the browser.

When I connect with Nordlayer, VPN status looks like,

nordlayer status
Login: Logged in
VPN: Connected
Current network: Rakesh
Server address: VPN_IP_ADDRESS
Protocol: IKEv2/IPSec

How to access the internet once you connect with Nordlayer VPN?

What's the terminal output of `nordlayer status`? Does it show as being properly connected? Do you have more than one network connection active at a time? Have you checked to ensure the browsers are respecting the VPN connection?

After Contact with the NordLayer Support team they have given a link to resolved the issue for the Linux Operating system.

Just follow the link, FIXED: NordLayer VPN Stopped Working after connecting VPN

Just follow the steps given in the link, and choose the third option (OpenVPN TCP). It's work for me.

Select setting to change: 
1: VPN Protocol
2: Auto-connect
3: Always connect to
4: ThreatBlock
5: Smart remote access device name

Select [number]: 1

Available values for VPN Protocol
1: Automatic
2: IKEv2/IPSec
3: OpenVPN TCP
4: OpenVPN UDP

You have to choose all the options manually four times to resolve the issue.

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
