If you're seeing the message "Daemon is unreachable, is systemd running?", that means that the nordvpn daemon is not started. Please run "sudo systemctl enable --now nordvpnd" to start it and run it at boot, or "sudo systemctl start nordvpnd" to only start it once.

Can you make me a maintainer please? It's ALREADY OUTDATED...

@viking777

I have been experimenting and I am not sure my assumptions is entirely correct.

I now believe it to be undesireable behavior of the official client.

All my notes are on the Manjaro forum https://forum.manjaro.org/t/howto-understand-why-nordvpn-disables-ufw/96135

@fhdk Thanks for the reply, I am sure you are correct in your assumptions re this program and ufw, but I don't think that excuses the fact that this happens without any warnings. If I see a program that deliberately disables my firewall, doesn't tell me, and then fails to re-enable it, then I instantly think 'malware'. Now I know this program is not malware, and certainly don't blame the maintainer for anything, he has just inherited this behaviour due to poor coding in from the nord original - it exhibits the same behaviour on debian based distros btw. I don't use Windows, but my wife does, and she also uses Nord and her software firewall doesn't get disconnected every time she connects, so it must be possible.

As to workrounds, I don't use autoconnect, so thankfully, I don't have to mess with the impenetrability of systemd. I use the simple but effective expedient of "nordvpn -c ** && sudo ufw enable" from the terminal, in case anyone else looking for a quick way around it.

Is there a system im place to update the deb url since there is the version 3.3 out there and the repo outdated or how can i support you guys?

Hi @erkexzcx, ahead of a 'poltical' decision regarding the maintainers adding you as a maintainer perhaps fast-track approach to merit maintaining here too [not necessary given your activity elsewhere on AUR but... ;-)] would be to share a link to your proposed build scripts to be used, or start a new AUR package. Just my 2c.

Can you make me a maintainer, please? I'd like to setup automated script to update this package.

Hey. Add missing armel architecture. It's for RPI1 and RPI zero devices (devices with armv6 architecture).

It's also provided by NordVPN: https://repo.nordvpn.com/deb/nordvpn/debian/pool/main/

@viking777 @typicallinuxuser

I am by no means a guru on connections and ufw but I do think that ufw is disabled because of the routing changes.

If the nordvpnd did not disable the ufw, the iptables generated by ufw would be blocking the traffic from the connected server as your nic changes address, dns and gateway.

If you are directly connected to a public a ip (most users connect through a firewalled routing device) then you are well served by a local firewall.

If you realle need firewall, you can create a systemd service to react on your network change to reenable ufw after nordvpnd has created the tunnel.

does not work for me at all .. removed everything and reinstalled but still the same error

Whoops! Connection failed. Please try again. If the problem persists, contact our customer support.

@typicallinuxuser I have noticed exactly the same ufw problem on Manjaro Linux - so it is not just you. Don't know what to do about it though except restart ufw every time I connect to a nordvpn server.
