    • Hi cooldog,

      You’ve got 2 separate issues here.

      1. Slow network – it can’t resolve the super secret keys within 60 seconds so shutdown, to protect you.

      2. Secondly it has a DNS error. It can’t look up the ip address of euro1.vpnbook… This normally means your DNS is responding too slowly.
      Can you locate the IP of your DNS server and ping it.
      Start > Accessories > command prompt (black tv screen icon)
      ping 192.168.1.1 (this will test connections to your default router).
      ping http://www.bbc.co.uk (this will test connections to a site that’s always online).
      Lastly ping the DNS IP for your ISP – is it really slow?

      Now, if you have internet connectivity, but your networks are sluggish looking up DNS IP’s for websites, then you could try pinging an OpenDNS DNS server rather than your ISP.

      Ping a free dns service instead of your ISP’s DNS servers – see if they’re faster
      http://theos.in/windows-xp/free-fast-public-dns-server-list/

      OpenDNS free dns server list / IP address:

      208.67.222.222
      208.67.220.220

      Norton free dns server list / IP address:

      198.153.192.1
      198.153.194.1

      See if any of those free DNS servers are faster than your local ISP. If they are, then amend your router to using the free DNS IP address – and you might find your connections are far more stable.

      Good luck!

    Hi, I hope someone can answer this. Ever since VpnBook changed their IP’s, certificates I can connect to their OpenVPN but I can’t load webpages and was able to before. When you use a VPN from any provider who’s DNS servers are you using? Your ISP’s? So do I have to put in OpenDNS or Google DNS in the local adapter or router to see webpages?

    • When you connect to a VPN provider, you normally use their DNS server. Otherwise your ISP could see what sites you were reading from the DNS servers. As I use IVPN, I use their DNS servers rather than my local ISP. IVPN then wipes their logs, so that no court orders can be complied with. Outside of OpenVPN, do not under any circumstances use Google as your DNS provider – look for a European DNS server such as Commodo (as FISA and the Patriot Act do not apply in Europe). Of course as soon as you use Google or Logmein – they resell your search history to anyone who will pay, and will provide that search history to local councils, benefit agencies and divorce lawyers. So be aware of the scale of data leakage that may occur with Google – either now or 10 years in the future.

    • Hi Brian,
      I’ve just checked the VPNBOOK website – they changed their password on Xmas eve.

      Make sure that you use their euro1 or euro2 servers. Both the US and Canada sites are highly restrictive… no p2p etc. The UK servers have been retired.. so if you were trying to connect to this, you’d have problems.

      Here’s the latest passwords – changed on Xmas eve.
      Server #6: Download UK Server OpenVPN Certificate Bundle (Retired)
      All bundles include UDP53, UDP 25000, TCP 80, TCP 443 profile
      Username: vpnbook
      Password: 4AwapRet
