I download file bigger then 2gb like everyday I need a download manger to speed it up. Ur non norton vpn probably allow torrents, I guess I going to install a non norton vpn too....... 

Maybe, try FDM Lite wo the torrent client.

Route applications using Split Tunnel in Norton Secure VPN
The Split Tunnel feature in Norton Secure VPN lets you route some of your app traffic through the VPN channel while other apps access the Internet directly.

The Split Tunnel feature is currently available on Norton 360, Norton Secure VPN app for Windows and Android only.

Depending on your device, choose one of the following to access Split Tunnel.

  • I have Norton 360 app on Windows
  • I have Norton Secure VPN app on Windows
  • I have an Android device

I did it just for me

Okay....as test: I installed FDM for all users. I added FDM Chrome extension. Norton 360 Secure VPN On does not like FDM and the FDM exe's that I added to Split Tunnel did not help.  I don't have need for FDM.  I did download a few files via FDM - Norton 360 Secure VPN Off. 

btw ~ my non-Norton VPN seems to work okay with the few files that I downloaded via FDM. 


@peter11

FDM Lite can also be downloaded, which requires less disk space than the regular version by removing things like the torrent client. If a download manager is all you're after, this is the better choice.
