I have a question about my VPN. It's been doing strange things.
I have installed the NordVPN package for Linux on Linux Mint 19 by following the instructions on their website and the Tor Browser as well.
When I connect to a NordVPN server and click the icon to open the Tor Browser, nothing happens. If I click it again, an error box comes up saying Tor is already running.
There are no abnormal log entries. This only happens when the machine is connected to a NordVPN server through their client. When I am not connected to NordVPN, Tor Browser opens normally and all connections work. I know it is a problem with the NordVPN client because I have connected to a NordVPN server through OpenVPN and Tor Browser functions correctly. I have also tried through the network manager and Tor works fine.
I have reinstalled NordVPN and the Tor Browser and reinstalled the OS too. NordVPN and Tor Browser work fine on Windows 10 and macOS 10. Tor also works if used in a VM and the VPN on the host.
Any ideas about how to use Tor Browser with the VPN?
As noted below, the protocol is set to TCP to work with Tor and I am not connected to a NordVPN Onion server.
