Need help with setup, http websites get blocked, error code 403

Post by samuel88 » Tue Sep 26, 2017 8:42 am

Hi everyone,

I have tried my best so far to make this work but after 4 hours on google and trying different fixes and still have no idea on how to make this work.

The setup is on Windows 10, the VPN server works fine, I use openVPN to connect to the server, everything is ok so far, accessing websites is fine, but some of them get 403, be it it's chrome, firefox or edge. Than I have noticed that the websites that get the 403 error are http websites (https websites load with no problem).

TL;DR: server works but when navigating the web http websites return with a 403 error, https website work fine.

Any suggestions, thanks in advance.

I think some web servers restrict accessing by IP address.
If you don't want to access internet via VPN, try to increase the metric value of virtual NIC.
