Using Calibre with a VPN

I use Calibre to read news. I recently installed a VPN product, MullVAD. In Calibare, when I "Fetch News" and then select a newspaper and select "Download Now", I receive an error message: "No Internet Connection". I tried excluding several Calibre programs from the VPN via the VPN's split tunneling, such as calibre.exe and calibre-parallel.exe, but it makes no difference. I tried a second VPN product, Proton VPN, but I had the same experience. The only way I can use Calibre is to turn off the VPN protection, start the download, and then turn it back on. Surprisingly, I can turn the VPN protection back on before the download completes, and it is fine.

I am running Windows 10.

Does anyone know what I need to do to enable Calibre to run with my VPN on?

Thanks

You could disable the check.

i.e.

Preferences/Tweaks
skip_network_check = True

Based on a quick test, that works! Thanks! I'll post if I have trouble going forward.
