I have used ExpressVPN for years with no issues with my Sonos system & ability to connect form my Mac.

After changing to NordVPN I cannot connect to Mac desktop controller. It is fine if I turn VPN off.


As I never had this issue before, can anyone offer any advice.


I live in the UK & use VPN for security, not for bypassing anything.

Possibly the ExpressVPN client was either smart enough, or suitably configured, to not swallow traffic from the Sonos controller directed at local IP addresses. There could be a similar option on NordVPN.

Thanks, there doesn’t seem to be, & no option for split tunnelling on either.

same issue for me, have not been able to solve this….
