Cursor with VPN

Often, I get my Cursor queries blocked. A modal appears citing my connection or my VPN being at fault.

I use VPN because I’m travelling in countries with internet censorship and also because I value privacy from ISPs, etc.

I’m wondering if Cursor plans to block queries from VPN IP addresses, or to let them pass through?

No plans to block VPN queries. This is likely a bug with our infra. Do you still see connection error issues?

For what it’s worth I use a VPN literally 24/7 and have had no real issues (I may as well state too that I use or at the very least have Cursor open 24/7 too lol). That said, I do know that some VPNs just don’t work as well in general, which is not saying much, but if I had to recommend anything without outright shilling a VPN provider, I have had a lot better experiences with Wireguard-based VPNs in terms of general connectivity with various services.

I’d be happy to recommend one to you, but won’t invite myself to do so. Feel free to ask though :slight_smile:

It’s good to know Cursor’s stance @truell20 , thank you.

It must have been connection or temporary infra issues. In the case that it keeps happening I will post once more. I suggest this thread is resolved for now.

@Adam I’m using a multi-hop wireguard-based VPN. :slight_smile:

Thank you.
