Having VPN connectivity problems.
Last month I purchased 3 years of VPN Unlimited VPN
service. I have never been able to connect. VPN-UL
is a modified version of Open VPN, so I've been told.
The primary problem is that VPN-UL reports that the 
VPN-UL services are not running, when in fact they are
running normally. (BTW, I have Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit 8gb RAM).
I have tried stopping and restarting, to no avail.
This morning I tried installing VPN-UL on my ancient,
wheezing Dell laptop, and *naturally* it installed immediately.
(I have both Ethernet & wireless - long story.)
So it doesn't appear to be the firewall or filters of Avast
Internet Security. I have plenty of logs and a config file,
but no clue as to what they do or don't reveal. TAP-Windows
Adapter v.9 is also used. Says it's running normally.
Here is their (Simplex Solutions) final (I guess) 'support' message:
"Currently, we do not have an immediate solution for this issue.
We will try to fix it as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience"
Translation: we have spent enough time on you and your $19. Do not call (email) us anymore.
Any help/tips/advice/insights greatly appreciated.

I'd cancel that, call my CC company to refuse the charge and find a new one. If they aren't going to help you then don't help them stay in business.

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

Well you didn't answer any of the questions, but the other thing I'd do is run the install as an admin

They have a lot of FAQ's. I had a look at their client downloads they don't go into much detail. It's a one app downloasd for all Windows. Maybe you have some services needed that is disabled. Like Remote access service, telephony, ipsec etc. You could check if you have the right services running. Go to start and type services.msc and follow a online list such as the Black Viper's website. There is now a tutorial on how to create a reg file to merge directly into the registry, making it easier to go back and forth between defaults and custom tweaked versions of services. Hope that helps you out.
