Mullvad VPN Compatability

Recommended Posts

So I've used Kaspersky for forever but Mullvad is newish. They worked fine together for a while but eventually one of the two programs updated and now they no longer like each other. I was still on Kaspersky 18 at the time so when I uninstalled it I verified Mullvad would connect properly which it did. But the second I downloaded Kaspersky again it quit. 

So I'm now running Kaspersky Total Security (b) and Mullvad 2018.2 the latest non-beta versions of both programs as far as I'm aware.

Basically I can get Mullvad to start with Auto-Connect and Auto-Start enabled. So when I reboot my computer it will connect to the VPN. But if it disconnects (which happens more often than I'd like) or if I manually try to switch servers, it refuses to connect. So I have to re-boot the computer.... Again this didn't happen when Kaspersky was uninstalled.

I've added Mullvad VPN, Daemon that manages the VPN tunnel and system security, OpenVPN Daemon all to trusted applications and under "Details and Rules" in the  "Exclusions" tab check marked everything besides "Apply Exclusion Recursively" and "Allow Interaction with Kaspersky Total Security Interface" in an attempt to solve this to no avail. What else can I do to attempt to resolve this?

Thanks in advance for your time and help!

1) Return either KT Security ver. 2019 to 2018 : or Roll back the Mullvad VPN to 2018.1 

2) While find a stable fix - Keep rebooting or apply the Auto connect to get Mullvad at work
