Joined up last week and was running things with TunnelBlick for a bit with no problems.


Then got a bit curious about the extra functionality I might get from the in-house client Eddie. Which in turn led to thinking that the network lock for me would be a good plan since the VPN is for a computer/file server that will be unattended most of the time so it would be nice to have a failsafe.


With it on a number of apps stopped being able to sync of connect. First Google couldn't sign me in, then MEGAsync stopped connecting. After that the Dropbox Client stopped syncing all the while the internet worked fine. Finally my PLEX server crashed and refused to open again.


I turned off Network lock and restarted Eddie, but that didn't make things better. I restarted the mac, I have deleted the location profile and made a fresh connection to my router, I spotted that Network lock works along the lines of the Mac Firewall so I turned mine on thinking this might over-ride whatever was going on and individually added all the programs that couldn't connect to the Firewall 'allowed' list. This has only fixed Dropbox.....


Can I assume that Eddie has left behind some script somewhere that I need to delete??
