Using NordVPN in Proxy Mode


Active Member
I was checking the instructions for using AG with NordVPN seen here:

I was not sure what to use for 'Proxy Host' as it is mentioned as:

any server save for "Obfuscated" from this list
I wanted to be sure that you mean to only use 'Obfuscated' server or to use any other than that? The reason I ask is because @TheHasagi mentions in this post that the servers must not be obfuscated.

By the way, I tried using a obfuscated server and it has worked but the speed has reduced drastically. I even tried the non-obfuscated server and it works but the speed is still slow. Note that I am using a premium NordVPN account.

I am on a non-rooted Android phone and using 'Local VPN' as the 'Filtering Method' and my base bandwidth for checking is a 4G fast mobile data connection (tried on WiFi too but it too is slow). Any suggestions on improving the speed apart from reducing the filter subscriptions?

Hello there!
Please specify if you are connecting to the specified VPN servers without AdGuard protection enabled - is the connection speed higher?
