Re: Probs with new configs in Ubuntu

Quite enjoying KDE in Kubuntu, its network manager is so much better - it remembers recent connections and moves them to the top of the very long CS list, just brilliant since my preferred connection is Washington DC, which is always at the very bottom of Ubuntu's Gnome NM. I know, it's just a scrol...

Re: Probs with new configs in Ubuntu

If your VPN connections originate in the router I doubt if you'll experience the problems I've been having. I've downloaded Kubuntu 18.04 ISO just now. I think I'll prefer KDE as I was used to using it way back in Solaris days (if my memory serves me correctly). I got used to Unity but I don't think...

Re: Probs with new configs in Ubuntu

Seem to have repaired the weirdness of NM by removing the LAN profile for the 4G hotspot. Despite me setting explicitly the primary LAN as auto-connect, seems that 18.04 or NM didn't really understand that. I did set up this install using the 4G hotspot as my primary LAN is so slow. Could be that it...

Re: Probs with new configs in Ubuntu

Re: Probs with new configs in Ubuntu

Ubuntu 18.04 reinstalled fresh, all working as it should.

Suspect the problem was something lingering in the 16.04 install.

Another problem is that 208.91.112.55 IP you're connecting to. That's not in the Washington DC list of IPs: That confused me for a while, I had no idea why it was doing that.

That usually means you downloaded the HTML version of the config from Github and not the raw version. or you could just grab them from our website @ https://cryptostorm.is/configs/ since the configs there don't have an HTML version.
