It seems VPN experience on Silverblue 38 has been…rocky. I’m wondering if any body else had the same issue here. Would might be the causes of the VPN issues?
I found myself unable to open any of my university’s websites if I connected to my university wifi (WPA2-Enterprise) when using a VPN. No matter which connection method I tried and which server I tried it remained the same. I have tried multiple VPN providers (Mullvad, iVPN, and Windscribe), and the results were the same.
However, I was able to connect to my university’s websites when I connected to my phone hotspot instead of my university wifi. I didn’t have this VPN issue when using other Linux OS before.
is it only after fedora38?
1)A naive assumption is that your uni website just blocks any connection with device fingerprint “Fedora/linux” since some admin could be quite (funny or lack of experience).They just assume anyone using linux is a Hacker*.
2)Your vpn is just those common advertised vpn.they even kept your OS environment in your connection.great privacy! while using hotspot probably overwritten the connection.OS as android.In naive sense your hotspot has better privacy.
