I encountered several VPN related bugs when using Silverblue 38 which I didn’t have in MicroOS, another immutable distro. 1. Windscribe VPN not able to connect to any server.
2. I wasn’t able to connect to my university’s websites if I connected to my university wifi. Other websites ran totally fine. This happened to three VPN providers I tested. Already reported the bug here. 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 there any workaround to fix this? Thanks!
