Problem with UltraVPN.

May 19, 2010 at 12:29:55
Specs: Linux Mint 7
Okay, so I followed the instructions here http://www.kabatology.com/11/24/how... to install UltraVPN in Linux, it prompts me to connect to the the key ring, I click "Okay/Accept" whichever, and it becomes encrypted with the little yellow padlock icon. But when I open Firefox and it tries to go to my home page which is Mozilla it says "Server not found", I even tried going to other sites such as Google.com, and it still says the same thing, what could be the problem?..

A VPN by design is supposed to take a connection between two systems and make it private.

I know that, but I've made sure to have all the right cert/files needed, and it still won't connect to the internet. However, when using UltraVPN for Windows with the GUI it works fine and my IP Address is hidden.

OH, I see now. I can't help as any reference to that is being blocked by our firewall.

I guess, the default gateway has been changed to use the vpn tunnel.

route -n

Thanks for that, only problem now is it uses a France IP address and times out a lot. Usually on Windows it'll switch between France, and a US based IP address from either New York or Denver.

I was able to get the VPN connection to work (and show the homepage in Firefox) however, it seems to always use a France located IP Address which times out on certain sites. However, when using UltraVPN in Windows XP, sometimes I'm lucky enough to get a New York/Denver based IP if I restart it a couple of times, and that IP doesn't time out. When trying to restart it in Linux, it always uses that same France IP Address and that's the main problem really.

I got it, but what does a route -n (in linux) or a route print in windows show as the default gateway, when the VPNs are connected?

Well, when I did route -n, it showed the first gateway was "10.8.52.169", below that it was, 0.0.0.0, and then showed my internal IP address below that. (this was all under the gatewat column when I had ultraVPN in Linux connected).

So, instead of making a new topic I thought I'd ask this here, but, besides OpenVPN/UltraVPN does anyone else know any other good VPN's out there?..I was thinking of using Ipig (Opious), but it's for Windows only, and it's not that reliable.

I really don't think, that UltraVPN is the problem.
I would try a simply thing to figure out, whether the line is between the locations is stable.
Use one machine and let it ping a machine at the other location through the VPN tunnel.
Use another machine and ping the public ip of the VPN tunnel without using the VPN tunnel..
The ping times should be relatively constant.
If one of both pings permanently gets timeouts but the other runs fine, we know, whether the line or the VPN has this problem and have to research.

Depending on the OS you're using to ping,
on linux use
ping [ipaddress]
on windows use
ping -t [ipaddress]

I tried going to "Whatismyipaddress.com", and ended up getting the IP, and then tried to ping it in the terminal, but I got an "Unknown Host" error. I also tried the other IP I listed above ("10.8.52.169") and even that came back with an "Unknown Host" error in the terminal.
