When on NordVPN windows will not connect to a local printer

printer ip is static and dhcp reserved.

tracert to printer shows its going to 10.. and times out as you would expect.

printer 192.168.1. 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1 2.4 ghz strong

virus software disabled,

error message from for cannon printer via printer is: widows host process Rundll32

Running windows trouble shooter says problem not found but then it works IMMEDIATELY

However, if you power cycle the printer then you no longer connect to printer

If you run the trouble shooter again, it will fix the problem after a COUPLE MINUTES.

tracert now works directly to the printer
power cycle printer
tracert now goes directly to the printer

printing now fails
If you run the trouble shooter again, it will fix the problem after a COUPLE MINUTES.

To summarize

trace route goes to 10... times out
won't print
run trouble shooter, it prints IMMEDIATELY, tracert connects

power cycle printer, print fails, tracert connects
run trouble shooter, it prints AFTER A MINUTE, tracert connects

power cycle printer, print fails, tracert connects
run trouble shooter, it prints AFTER A MINUTE, tracert connects
