How do I install old nordvpn from AUR?

Hi, I want to try installing older versions of nordvpn-bin from AUR:

I do not know how

I am a newbie, and I have yay, and already installed the latest version

I am convinced somewhere along this timeline of recent nordvpn-bin updates, integrated routing commands broke gateway functionality

Thank you, I want to work upwards and potentially even pinpoint which version  broke things so I can take it up with nordvpn and look for help

My end game is to be able to use the most recent version, and enable IPv4 forwarding

Thank you.  If you can join #archlinux on Libera and message me 'genji' I'd love to provide you a login to experiment with and then troubleshoot until it works.

Re: How do I install old nordvpn from AUR?

I just did `yay -R nordvpn-bin` and pressed Y to confirm, so it should be uninstalled.  This was the most recent version.  Thank you

How do I now install something like version 3.10.0 for example?

And then how do I overwrite 3.10.0 with the next iteration, and so on?

I want to pinpoint where routing breaks
