Hi, I am a newbie and have read through the peacock note and the other guidance at the start of the Forum.

I've got a primary NETGEAR R7300 configured with standard firmware.

I've then got a second NETGEAR R7000 which I've flashed with DD-WRT v3.0-r41771 std (12/21/19).

I'm attempting to run the second R7000 router through the first to access a specific geographic NORDVPN server.

The second R7000 appears to be working okay but cannot connect to NORDVPN. If I check the Status and OPEN VPN tab I get a repeating error message:

19700105 12:59:12 N RESOLVE: Cannot resolve host address: uk1383.nordvpn.com:1194 (Try again)
19700105 12:59:17 N RESOLVE: Cannot resolve host address: uk1383.nordvpn.com:1194 (Try again)
19700105 12:59:17 W Could not determine IPv4/IPv6 protocol
19700105 12:59:17 I SIGUSR1[soft init_instance] received process restarting

I was going to try a different NORDVPN server and download the config files however I'm concerned I've missed or incorrectly set up another configuration setting on the router. Any ideas or should I start again from scratch??

Thanks in advance

im not a nordvpn user but i know there was a lot of work on the VPN side on those last firmware builds, i suggest you move to the last build available for R7000 and try again...make sure your settings are correct and you are using the correct suggested encryption...
Do in mind R7000 has a resource for a 30-40Mbit with VPN...only

Do you run your R7000 router as a Gateway...with NAT?
more details on your settings are needed...
