    In the router field put the router address. This is typically, or, or what ever you have given it. Then supply a ip range. My router is, and I and using a range of through You will need to port map ports 500, 1701, and 4500 to the machine running ivpn. This is done on the router. I hope this helps.

    Hi everyone...new member here.

    Is HotSpot Shield's L2TP VPN still working with anyone's SK prepaid plan? Over the past day I haven't been able to connect to the VPN via L2TP...kept getting the error "the L2TP-VPN server did not respond. Try reconnecting. If the problem continues, verify uour settings and contact your Administraor."

    I've retried the settings on Hotspot Shield for iPhone a billion times and gotten several new usernames & password; however none of them work at all.

    Did TMO block this ruote up? I could still get on my school's IPSec VPN without a problem, but once connected it doesn't seem to actually route any traffic through the VPN.

    Push mail still works with my MobileMe account though with or without VPN.

    Free VPN continues to work be sure you disable wifi then any other vpns. You need to have 3-4 bars of service then repeat the process 2-3 times (what a *****) then if tha doesn't work disable edge wait a min tuen re enable... Once you establish good service and E for edge try connecting again and good luck it's kinda slow

    looking for a windows VPN to use with iPhone then you can connect first try everytime and depending on home Internet connectionss actually out perform the speed of Hotspot.

    For us sidekck $1 plan it's this or 35 for dat @ 20cents a min and extra for text as well... So I continue on with $1/day inconvienance plan

    also clear your APN settings rumor has it this gets your phone assigned a diff IP that makes the connection more sucessful

    know what you want it's rally unreliable so you wanna act fast

    Thanks for the directions...after hours of trying and it still doesn't work. Are there other L2TP alternatives to HotSpot Shield?

    What about SSL? Would that work? I actually have a subscription to Witopia's SSL service and would like to use that if there's a client available for the iPhone.

    has anyone been able to beat this price?

    aint noooooooooooooo way i'm payn that much...
    rushbuster the way i see it, and i may be horribly wrong, but it is 20 cents a min... then 35 for data for 5 dollars more you get 300 msgs?

    Thats 40 a month... which is 10 more a month or 33 cents more a day than the sidekick plan which was a steal and we all know it, why is 10 dollars standing in anyones way from getting trouble free data back?

    Is it just the idea of monthly bills?

    And for anyone else, is it possible to use my prepaid SIM from the sidekick plan for the 35 monthly data, or will i require a new one to activate it? (Also if i need a new SIM can I get the same phone number?)
