Linux Mint 18.2 - cannot connect when disconnecting VPN
I have no issues with PIA connecting and providing me with a VPN connection. However, when I send email (I use Thunderbird) the message will not go out. My ISP (COX) apparently blocks PIA IPs. Under Windows I simply disconnect PIA and send my message. I am also able to browse etc. Under Mint when I do the same thing I lose all connectivity and am unable to browse or send email. I am using V75. I have a wired connection. I have put PIA DNS numbers into the network configuration. I'm not sure what to do next as I am still trying to learn the subtleties of Mint (Windows too for that matter). Any thoughts? Thanks.
