Can't connect over Wi-Fi

Postby Granny » Fri Apr 13, 2018 2:00 am

Hi, I'm using widget 3.12 on win 10, and if I'm physically connected to the internet, I connect just fine to CS. But, when I go to the library or a coffee shop and try to use CS over their wi-fi, I can't.

Can anyone tell me how to do this? That's the most important time to use a VPN is over wi-fi.

Thanks

@OP

They may be blocking UDP traffic on port 443, since in reality the only application using port 443 will be a browser and browsers don't generate UDP traffic, they generate TCP traffic.

Try setting TCP in the widget and see what happens.

Thanks, parityboy. I'll try that Monday when I'm back at the library.

Thanks parityboy. Changing from UDP to TCP in the widget didn't help, but I checked off "random port" and all seems to be well.

So, I used TCP rather than UDP, and checked "random port" and all worked. Then, went to a different Wi-Fi, and I can't connect.
Help?

Ummm, help? Anybody out there? I'd really like to be able to use a VPN over Wi-fi, and I can't use CS. Please help. Thank you.

Thanks for getting back to me, parityboy. I'm not getting errors; it just hangs; "logging into the darknet..." and nothing else. I don't know what you mean by logs; sorry. If you can walk me through that?
Thanks again.

@OP

All I meant by "logs" is any kind of output that might highlight what may be going wrong. When you swap to another WiFi network, does "naked" Internet access work without hiccups? When it hangs at "Logging into the darknet..." can you open a command line window and type route /print, then post the output here?

Thanks. :)
