So if you happen to be running PeerBlock on your system, do NOT use the Bogon block list if you want to use Private Internet Access (PIA), here’s what happened to me:
PIA started taking a long time to connect. PIA was slow to start. I then noticed that even though the tray icon was bright green that my status was not protected. My IP was being leaked. So I started digging around into the logs and I found this gem:
Warning: route gateway is not reachable on any active network adapters
PIA support wanted me to reset my TCP/IP Stack but when running
netsh int ipv4 reset and
netsh int ipv6 reset (by the way, I suggest both of those and not just the single “ip” for Windows 8 and newer) I was getting permission errors saying Access Denied.
I found this forum post that helped me to correct that issue: netsh int ip reset registry permission fix in case anyone else runs across this website on a related search.
Anyway, nothing worked. I couldn’t get OpenVPN or PIA to connect correctly. Log story short, Bogon list…
PIA’s tunnel uses private IP addressing and PeerBlock was blocking the incoming traffic.
The more you know…
