QWebEngineView not working with VPN on

  • Hello,

    I've been experiencing issues using QWebEngineView when VPN is on. I have a webview in cpp that loads a url and waits for a response, once it receives the response, the webview is destroyed.
    I was experiencing issues loading webview when VPN is on. I have also noticed, it is not only when VPN is on, but rather when network changes, i.e. if I managed to successfully perform request with VPN on and then try again with VPN off, it fails.
    It's very hard to explain what failing actually means... The signal loadfinished seems to be unreliable. Sometimes it's not emitted at all ... I get page is unreachable or it seems to get stuck somewhere half way through (webpage blank)...

    Are there any known issues for QWebEngine and VPN? I have tried completely destroying the object each time before making a request, but that did not change anything.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
