If you're seeing the message "Daemon is unreachable, is systemd running?", then one of two things is probably happening.

The nordvpn daemon might not be started
Start it using:
sudo systemctl enable --now nordvpnd

You might not have been added to the nordvpn group
Add yourself:
sudo gpasswd -a USERNAME nordvpn
And then restart in order for the group to be created:

@isryn yes -- that does work. thank you!

isryn commented on 2022-08-09 19:15 (UTC)

you can fix the "rotating:transport rotator: ptr timer is locked" output like this: 1. sudo systemctl stop nordvpnd.service 2. sudo mkdir /run/nordvpn/ 3. touch nordpvnd.sock 4. sudo systemctl start nordvpnd.service cheers

Getting the same message as ygurin when I try to login

"rotating: transport rotator: ptr timer is locked"

ygurin commented on 2022-08-06 23:14 (UTC)

I seem to be getting this on login

nordvpn login

rotating: transport rotator: ptr timer is locked

Any idea what this could be?

Any idea how to use meshnet according to

$ nordvpn set meshnet on                                                                                                                                                                                           
Command 'meshnet' doesn't exist.

Having issues with this last update. In order to connect to any specific server using

"nordvpn c Seattle" (or any general or specific server locale, for that matter)

Connecting to United States #8952 ( Whoops! We couldn't connect you to 'Seattle'. Please try again. If the problem persists, contact our customer support.

But when I explicitly specify the Nord-preferred DNS server addresses using

"nordvpn set dns"

resulting in a proven settings change to this:

$ nordvpn settings Technology: NORDLYNX Firewall: enabled Kill Switch: disabled Threat Protection Lite: disabled Notify: disabled Auto-connect: disabled IPv6: disabled DNS:,

the problem vanishes and a successful connection is almost immediate. Whether using Nordlynx or OpenVPN technology, or UDP or TCP protocol, I must explicitly set the DNS addresses or I get no connection. I looked over the PKGBUILD and install files but see nothing that could explain this. Also, I am logged in, the daemon is enabled and I am a member of the nordvpn group. I do allow Networkmanager to control the writing of resolv.conf. Thoughts? I've reached out to tech support. Situation persists after I flush IP tables. UPDATE, UNRESOLVED: Nord tech support simply recommends adding Cloudflare nameservers and to resolv.conf and making that file immutible: chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf The need for explicit DNS servers in nordvpn-bin was nevertheless unchanged.

UPDATE: The nordvpn-bin update seems to have resolved the above issue.

Just putting this out there in case anyone else wants to use the old, but reliable version of nordvpn. nordvpn-bin-3.7.4-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.zst

Hi ! Thanks for maintaining,

Here's a quick suggestion : when installing the package, directly suggest the automatic command to be added to the nordvpn group :

sudo gpasswd -a $(whoami) nordvpn

Have a nice day
