Reset killswitch

If you lack Internet connectivity either while using the OVPN desktop client, or afterwards, it is possible that the killswitch have locked itself. There are three ways to reset the killswitch: Restart the client, restart the computer, or through the terminal window/command prompt. If you want to reset it through the terminal or command prompt, follow these steps:

Windows:

  1. Open command line
  2. Navigate to the OVPN installation folder. Usually this can be done by typing cd C:\Program Files (x86)\OVPN
  3. Type: killswitch all disable killswitch 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 -1

The killswitch is now reset and you should have Internet connectivity.

Mac:

  1. Open Terminal window
  2. Type: sudo pfctl -d
  3. When prompted, enter your password for your computer login

The killswitch is now reset and you should have Internet connectivity.

    iptables-save | grep -v 'ovpn.se' | iptables-restore
