The Windows GUI node doesn't start after Windows 10 reboot

Hi Alexey,

Thank you for your reply, I appreciate it. I powershelled the rules and everything seems to be in order.

Hey, one more thing; it looks like the Windows version with GUI can not start up anymore after restarting Windows 10.

Have a great weekend!

Best,
J.

Thank you, Alexey, consider it done.

Please test it - try to reboot and wait for full load of Windows, the service should start normally.

Hi Alexey, Everything has been working smoothly. Do you have a Windows 10 VPN guide available? I’m considering Proton VPN. Will it work with my node?

Thx,
J.

We doesn’t have a specific VPN guides for Windows 10, we only have a guide for PIA: https://support.storj.io/hc/en-us/articles/360026892971-Running-a-V3-Storage-Node-with-PIA-VPN-
However, accordingly the ProtonVPN guide: How to use port forwarding in ProtonVPN apps the configuration would be very similar - they provides a random external port, so you need to use a DDNS hostname and update the external port in your configuration every reconnect of the VPN.
