Unable to link project to Unity Service until i fake ip

Hi,

I don’t know why Unity keep showing message: “Unable to link project to Unity Services” whenever I connect my project to it. I tried many solutions on internet but nothing work until I faked ip using ProtonVPN.

The question is why it work? What a VPN program did? Can I have a way to using Unity Services without turning on a VPN program?

Thanks

I solved myself. When i opened my network settings, in proxies tab, i saw SOCKS Proxy was enabled with server is localhost:8080. I turned it off and then i can connect to my Unity Services again without using VNP
