Manually disconnecting from the vpn causes network to reply with Invalid Argument

Rate this question



Good Afternoon, 

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04.04 LTS 64 bit and cannot connect to the internet unless the vpn is running even after manually disconnecting it once it's been started. I've done the usual checks that most people would do - making sure I have a connection to the internet / checking the dns server (pihole) is running and accessible/etc.

The Torguard vpn client (v3.98.11) works fine as long as I'm connected but when I turn it off ( for example to watch netflix) every other browser and ping/traceroute gives an error of invalid argument. It will go away after a restart or 2 or if I reconnect the vpn. 

At first I thought it might have been the fact that torguard had the control interfaces button on but I still have the same issues when it's turned off. I do have seamless connect and the kill switch buttons enabled.

Hoping someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong. Thanks!

I am using Kubuntu 20.04 and I noticed that TorGuard works more "seamlessly" (without GTK related crashes) when run as a sudo user. Have you tried to sudo launch the TorGuard app?


The reason I'm asking is:

This can happen if the "iproute"-ing on the configuration is not removed properly or your web browser is proxied.

Without SUDO TorGuard may be denied access to fixing your iptables.
