NOTE: It may be necessary to enable systemd-resolved for windscribe to work. It may fail silently without it. NetworkManager also works fine according to some reports.

If your internet has severe problems because of this package, see this thread

My experience with NetworkManager (on kde) is not so good. Windscribe gui often complains that "something is interfering" with it's network. Often it will not work correctly. Sometimes I will be unable to access local networks unless I enable Windscribe (like access to my printer). After coming back from suspend/sleep state it is also not working correctly. I have to restart the NetworkManager or windscrbe-helper services.

Hello David, it looks like this is the intended behavior when the killswitch is enabled.

Installing Windscribe causes a change to the iptables that disables Internet access.

I've included the entire iptables response at https://pastebin.com/j0ihFZnr

To regain Internet access, I execute ...

sudo iptables -F

Why does it need sudo? I am using doas and I deleted the sudo from the dependency list, and it works fine

Nov 04 16:28:40 hearth systemd[1]: Configuration file /etc/systemd/system/windscribe-helper.service is marked executable. Please remove executable permission bits. Proceeding anyway.
