GlassWire and Windscribe VPN


There seems to be a problem with GlassWire and Windscribe.

The connection stops after about 2 minutes. I have to reset my ethernet adapter to get back online.

GlassWire Elite 2.0.123


Sorry for the problem.

GlassWire makes no changes to the Ethernet adapter. If you uninstall GlassWire does the problem continue?


If I disable glasswire and stop glasswire service the problem stops.


Please try this and see if it solves the problem.


Tried it before, does not help.

Windscribe support told me to change connection protocol to UDP - that did the trick.


I use Windscribe Pro VPN v1.82, and the automatic connection mode uses UDP with OpenVPN. No issues here with GlassWire Pro 2.0.123.


The problem seems to be with IKEV2. No problems with UDP OpenVPN.


I just left Windscribe Connection Mode set to “Automatic” by default, and it chose UDP. So have never experienced any issues. Good to know this though!

The Windscribe FAQ says this about IKEV2 : IKEv2 - Default connection mode, usually the fastest, but can be easily blocked.


I’m glad it’s working now!
