Unfortunately after a reboot I am now back to the same as before with it re ShieldsUp.
Later last evening I could not even connect to TrustConnect, I am hoping that is just temporary.
Edit - I have tried to connect to HotspotShield also and I am failing with an error stating 'Bandwidth exceeded'.
I have searched for anything on this with Google and have found this:
1) Disconnected (Auth Failure)
2) Disconnected (Bandwidth Exceeded)
The “Auth-Failed” message occurs when the server denies a connection request. This most often occurs because the user has exceeded bandwidth limits.
Any user that has used more than 10 GB will not be able to log in until their prior month of bandwidth usage drops below 10 GB.
As I am testing these VPNs at home, I am connected to the Internet via my ISP Orange France, with an ADSL. I am soon going away, so that is why I want the wifi security.
Now I don't understand all this technical stuff, but I am beginning to think that the ISP may be blocking these connections, as I also saw something about VPNs bypassing sites blocked by ISPs. Is that possible?
