I recently signed with a company called Blackvpn that gives you VPN access to servers in the US and UK. For some reason it just doesn't want to work when I am at home. I was wondering if anyone else on Orcon was having any issues with this?
At home I am with Orcon. I have used it at various other locations with other connections and it works fine. The strange thing about how it doesn't work at home. The connection is made and seems fine, but the latency is so bad that I can't even get a website to load.
I have tried opening all my ports on my router, I have tried opening specific ports on my router. I have tried connecting form 2 different machines on the network. I have tried turning on uPNP on my router, I have tried turning off uPNP on my router.
I have tried lowering my MTU from 1458 to 1400 as I was advised by Orcon Support when I contacted them about this.
My partner has a work VPN that she can't connect to in Melbourne. Though that never connects at all. Having said all that, when I use my local work VPN, which connects to Auckland, it works just fine. Could there be an issue connection to offshore VPN's or am I over simplifying things?
Any suggestions would be most welcome :)
