I have a GL Ar300m connected to NordVPN servers via openvpn.
Sometimes, I am just disconnected from the VPN. I guess the issue come from NordVPN (server overload or something else).
Is there a possibility to ask to the router to automatically try another server if one is not working ?
I guess that it could be possible with a script or something but I have really no knowledge in this field.
Do you have a script “ready to use” by chance?
Thank you very much !
Hopefully problem is being investigated:
Yes, I just saw it.
I quickly searched on Google but I did not find these topics. My bad.
I lost again my connection today so I spoke with the NordVPN Team.
They asked me to send the log and to :
Change the DNS in order to use the NordVPN DNS (previously I used the DNS of Google)
Download any UDP configuration file, open it with any text editor and then remove the following line:explicit-exit-notify 3 because Gl firmware doesn’t understand that line therefore causes the issue with UDP configurations.
So I will test this to see if I can keep my connection now.
>>> remove the following line: explicit-exit-notify 3
Hmmmm, but Nord Ovpn files don’t have that line it!
And I can’t see the DNS servers being the issue but I look forward to the conclusions of your testing.
You have this line only in the UDP files if I understood properly
Honestly, I am not very confident but we will see.
As I siad, none of the ovpn files (UDP and TCP) have that line in it.
Unfortunately we can not upload this kind of file.
So I invite you to check the following files as examples : fr8.nordvpn.com.udp1194.ovpn and fr10.nordvpn.com.udp1194.ovpn
Ahhh, interesting! I checked the files already in my router and none of those have the “explicit” line. However, I just checked the zip file I have on my PC and they do indeed have it!
So, at some stage Nord must have updated the files, as I downloaded a new copy after setting up my router…unless this line is somehow removed in the upload process (which I doubt).
Bottom line is none of my ovpn files have the line and I still lose connection.
Also, I believe this line is only included in the UDP files but I also get disconnects using TCP.
Too bad, we still not have our solution.
As soon as I lose my connection I will reach the NordVPN team again and send my log.
What did they say when you explained our problem ?
Thank you Glitch
The NordVPN team told me to add the line : “auth-retry nointeract” and for the moment it is working
