I tether my internet with my phone. I connect with my laptop to it. If I keep my VPN client (NordVPN) activet, internet does not work.
NordVPN support says to configure VPN in Settings > VPN. However, I want to use many VPN servers so manually setting each there is not possible. NordVPN frontend has a nice map where you can choose which VPN server to use. Internet works with VPN in my phone but not in my laptop when it is using the tethered source.
Differential condition: NordVPN Android application does not keep VPN active all the time
- complication: Client laptop cannot get internet in USB tethering when VPN is active in the phone
I forwarded this thread (26.9.2016, 3.10.2016 and 4.10.2016) to the NordVPN support and stated a deep wish to get a manual about using NordVPN internet from phone with your Debian laptop. Feel free to ask me more details about the test configuration if needed. Questions of the tech support
- Does [Android NordVPN] disconnect when you are browsing or not launching at all? It disconnects itself when browsing internet.
- Can you give more information about our application not keeping connection at all time. How often you are getting disconnect and on what event it disconnects ( i.e. when you lock your phone or when it fall in sleep for not using it). It occurs daily. It occurs when I lock my phone.
