Is there a way to clear any cache in the system that may affect connectivity?

It would be nice a command that is executed prior to establishing connection

Hi Mark,

The only real system cache is DNS, which you can clear with the following from a command prompt:

ipconfig --flushdns

The system also has an ARP cache but if you're using a TUN connection this has no real effect as it's only used on your local network in general.

Modern web browsers all have their own caches, many even cache their own DNS these days, so you will need to query the user manual or a help forum for the web browser you are using to see if there's an easy way to clear their caches, usually simply closing all the open Windows before connecting to a VPN is enough.
