    Hello! I’ve installed Wiresock and configured it like this:

    [Interface]
    PrivateKey = ##
    Address = ##/32
    DNS = ##

    [Peer]
    PublicKey = ##
    AllowedIPs = 0.0.0.0/0, ::/0
    Endpoint = ##
    AllowedApps = taiga

    Logs only show connections with allowed app, there are no traces of game traffic, but ping skyrockets nonetheless:

    Is it me doing something wrong, or game doing some shady stuff with all traffic?

    Using a VPN may affect your ping, the details depend on the location of the VPN and the game server. Sometimes you can win, sometimes you can lose. Wiresock software itself has very low latency, unless you use verbose logging, don’t forget that I/O operations are always expensive.

    Yeah, but shouldn’t it ignore all apps outside of AllowedApps? As in the only one app using VPN is Taiga, in my case. In fact, all other apps (Firefox and Yandex Browser, qBittorrent, etc.) are working just fine, only when I’m launching this game (Genshin Impact), it clashes with Wiresock. It’s not only high ping, sometimes it causes all connections to stop working.

    I’ve continued to monitor ping with Wiresock enabled, and haven’t really seen any hickups for two days. I don’t know what caused it, but looks like problem fixed itself (for now)?

    If you had problems with v1.2.4 and don’t have them with v.1.2.5, then it was probably the same bug reported here.
