Usually this happens when resuming laptop from sleep having previously been connected. When the client tries to reconnect is just hangs indefinitely and shows reconnecting in the status.

The annoying this is I cannot cancel this, or kill the nord vpn process, leaving with no open other than to reboot.

I'm using the latest version on NordVPN linux client NordVPN Version 3.10.0.

I've tried various settings changes, kill switch on/off etc. I'm currently on the following settings.

Technology: OpenVPN
Protocol: UDP
Firewall: enabled
Kill Switch: disabled
CyberSec: disabled
Obfuscate: disabled
Notify: enabled
Auto-connect: disabled
IPv6: disabled
DNS: x.x.x.x, x.x.x.x

Is there a way to kill nord VPN using the usual method of searching in system monitor, doesn't seem to work as the process pops straight back up again.

I have the same issue and use this little script:

sudo pkill -9 -f nordvpn
sudo iptables --policy INPUT ACCEPT
sudo iptables --policy FORWARD ACCEPT
sudo iptables --policy OUTPUT ACCEPT
sudo iptables -t nat --flush
sudo iptables -t mangle --flush
sudo iptables --flush
sudo iptables -X

It kills the nordvpn process and resets the iptables.

After that, you can connect again.
