I am trying to set up MusicBrainz Picard with a new computer but will only connect with the website when the VPN is off. I have an older computer that works just fine with a VPN on, so why doesn’t it work on the new one.
Here are the differences:
can ping and view musicbrainz.org, everything works in both the program and browser
using ethernet, allowing program through Windows Defender Firewall,
cannot open musicbrainz.org in Firefox or Edge when VPN is on
“Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at musicbrainz.org”
a general failure when I ping musicbrainz.org
Here are the similarities:
using same home network, same VPN, newest version of Picard (2.5.6), testing same music files, both Windows 10 Home version 20H2, using Firefox as default browser
The error I’m getting is Permission Denied (QT code 99, HTTP code 0):
E: 18:31:28,903 webservice_init_._handle_reply:457: Network request error for https://musicbrainz.org:443/ws/2/release/da3b2c44-55b2-4672-9a1b-0da8668b1c41?inc=release-groups+media+discids+recordings+artist-credits+artists+aliases+labels+isrcs+collections+artist-rels+release-rels+url-rels+recording-rels+work-rels: Permission denied (QT code 99, HTTP code 0)

I’ve tried to add static routing via Command Prompt
route -p ADD 220.127.116.11 MASK 255.255.255.0 10.0.0.1
Should I try without ethernet? Maybe try " Prefer IPv4 over IPv6 in prefix policies"
