If you're seeing the message "Daemon is unreachable, is systemd running?", that means that the nordvpn daemon is not started. Please run "sudo systemctl enable --now nordvpnd" to start it and run it at boot, or "sudo systemctl start nordvpnd" to only start it once.

arizonajoe: I don't think it's a KDE thing, works fine with my KDE. Could be a DNS issue. Perhaps run wireshark and observe the packet flows, you might notice some irregular or unanticipated behaviour that is associated with your problem. Finally, the pkgbuild pre-processing script might improve with chattr -Ri /var/lib/nordvpn/* to ensure all new files are successfully written. Try running that command then re-installing.

Despite proper configuration of this fully-updated version of nordvpn-bin, particularly when using Nordlynx's Wireguard-based protocol, connection to a server using nordvpn c "server_of_your_choice" works well and does connect to the server and data will flow for a few minutes, but on "this" older 2013 vintage Dell 7737 laptop, using an Intel 7260 WiFi card and kernel-supplied driver, the connection slows gradually over several minutes and then completely stops. Within the Plasma GUI, the NetworkManager wifi icon in the panel ("system tray") shows the requisite "!" indicating limited connectivity. The particular Nord server choice does not seem to matter. The system must be rebooted to restore a functional network stack. I have not experienced this problem using the OpenVPN protocol.

When I access the very same Nord server a minute later on a different (Windows 10 Pro) machine, the server syncs quickly and functions with unfettered throughput. I suspect that the problem on "this" laptop may be a Plasma/NM issue. I have also not been able to replicate this deterioration in Gnome or classic Gnome, nor have I experienced it in console mode either as root or as a standard user.

I sorted out my issues with the latest release. Seems that just nordvpn connect no longer picks a server near you geographically. It previously did so automatically. No worries. Specify country and city all is good.

@tyler19820201: By referring to the news I was highlighting the fact that developers of AUR package managers needed to update their code, not yourself. So, you just need to get your latest/favourite package manager 'updated'. You then can manually build that package, most have been updated. I use Yay today:

There is definitely some different with the 3.8.3-1 release. It does work but I can only connect to 1 server in Costa Rica. Additionally if I issue nordvpn logout and try to login again providing email address and password it fails to connect every time. Anyone else experiencing this?

3.7.4-1 does not exhibit this behavior.

@tyler19820201: If you can download, extract to folder and run makepkg, then run pacman -U <package> successfully you should update/change your pkg manager. BTW there were recent key changes for AUR:

On my package manager still only nordvpn-bin 3.7.4-1 available only no 3.8.3-1... On the terminal i am getting warning about update available but nothing in my package manager....Anyway until 3.7 still works fine i am okay with that.

Sorry, everyone. NordVPN team reminded me to use whitelist command ($ nordvpn whitelist add subnet <my_subnet/mask>) so issue resolved :-)

Just a heads-up to users... sometime in last couple of days something 'changed'. Before then, no issue pinging RFC1918 (local) addresses then today no joy when VPN 'connected'. Disconnect VPN and can ping, thus it's a firewall issue with how NordVPN interprets existing rules and overlays their own binding to the VPN host IP and dropping 'everything' else based on my tests today. Workaround is f'ing tedious till I script it... first, before connecting to VPN, do an iptables-save of the good conf. After connecting to NordVPN, check the NordVPN IP given that is in the updated firewall rules (take note of those new rules), then restore old fire rules and add the NordVPN rules thereafter thus ensuring LAN Allow is before local nic DROP statement etc. etc..
