Win7 VPN - thoughts and comments

NKT Posts: 15 Explorer

Is there a better place to leave feedback regarding the trial/beta of the Windows version of Freedome?


Anyway, so far, I've had a mixed time of it. The first machine it didn't install, since it was XP SP3. Moving swiftly on, I installed it on a Win7 laptop. This went well, and I'm posting from it now.


I've had various issues connecting to the different proxys. I tried Amsterdam first, but it failed to connect. I wasn't too impressed to find that it had failed silently too - I didn't know until I looked. I'd prefer it if I was alerted to the proxy disconnecting, and I'd also like an option that I could click so that there was no network traffic allowed if the proxy wasn't able to set up a VPN channel, at least until I confirm that I was OK with it being turned off.


I've just had to try a dozen times to connect to different proxies. The one in London connected instantly, once, but failed several times, as did Stockholm and Amsterdam (which I was interested in testing) after all these failures I also tried the USA, but that also failed. Eventually I managed to run a few tests which confirmed it was working just fine. (This was over a domestic British Telecom connection over wifi and ADSL)


It actually seems faster than working without the VPN, so that's good.

    Hi NKT!

    Thanks for your feedback! I'd say this is probably the best place for that kind of feedback, as the Freedome product management/development teams read through this board regularly :)

    and since I haven't had a chance earlier, welcome to the Community, and thanks for all your helpful activity! ... and Happy New Year!
