Nord VPN Blocked


[link to this post]
 
I notice that I cannot get to Nord VPN main website using Now Broadband. Anyone else on Sky network who has the same issue. Works fine if I use a VPN or my mobile phone off the WiFi.

Never noticed anything being blocked before. The page just doesn't load, no error or anything just the wheel of death

Yes.
They also block AIRVPN quite frequently.
There were numerous posts on the Sky forum around this but no resolution.

Cheers smile. Good to know it's not just me. Not the end of the world as I don't use them normally but assumed not having any parental controls etc active they wouldn't block websites unless on the government list. A little naughty of them.

People on Sky Broadband can't connect to NordVPN? That must be annoying for those who paid for 3 years VPN!

Check some providers even though you've not turned on parental controls still run them at a level that blocks sites that are considered suspicious. So sometimes to unblock services like Teamviewer people have to configure the parental controls and turn off the malware protection.

Hey, good shout Andrew. Had a look on my account and something called broadband Buddy was on adult, but not actually off. Turned it off and Nord now works.
