    How to reset network settings on Linux?

      Article Summary

      In case you are experiencing issues with your NordLayer connection, resetting your network settings is a viable option to resolve them. A full re-boot of your Linux device should always work, but there also are more granular ways.

      Reset network

      In most cases, Internet connection is made via Network Manager:

      sudo systemctl restart NetworkManager

      Temporarily deactivate Firewall

      For debugging issues, it can be helpful to deactivate the Firewall temporarily to see if that changes anything. To list Firewall rules:

      sudo nft -s list ruleset      # list rules
      sudo ufw status               # Ubuntu

      The Firewall can be cleared until the next reboot:

      sudo nft flush ruleset # clear all rules

      Please note that these changes will be temporary and reverted after device reboot.
