Glasswire not compatible with NordVPN?

When I try to connect to NordVPN, it says the connection is made but my internet does not work. I have to use task manager to end all Glasswire tasks to then connect, and if I try to open Glasswire, it says it can’t make any connections. How do I get Glasswire to work with NordVPN?


This problem is now fixed with GlassWire 1.2.79 and any future GlassWire versions. To fix it download GlassWire’s latest version, then create a “glasswire.conf” file with your Notepad application.

Inside the GlassWire.conf text file created by Notepad please insert this text.

hostname_enable_nslookup = false

Please move the .conf file to C:\programdata\GlassWire\service

Reboot your PC.

Now the problem should be fixed. This .conf file disables GlassWire host lookups. For some reason NordVPN would block all network activity if GlassWire tried to do a lot of host lookups and this was the only solution we could find. We reported the problem to NordVPN.
