I installed Windscribe VPN and now Bonk will not transfer Seti@home WU when VPN is on, I have shut it off to complete transfers.
Windows 10, Bonk version 7.14.2 x64.

There's nothing about VPNs in general that keeps BOINC from transferring data. Have you tried a different vpn server? It's possible the one you're using is on a blacklist. If you can't find one that works then check to see if there's a proxy setting you need to set up for BOINC.

Does your VPN handle secure (HTTPS) connections correctly?

I'm not sure how I would know that. I am on this forum posting comments and it is HTTPS so I would assume so.
