Freedome not connecting after upgrade from JB 4.3 to KitKat 4.4
I have a stock Dell Venue 8 android tablet that came with JB 4.3, and I have been using Freedome (with paid subscription) on it for the last 2 weeks. I have had no issues at all, until yesterday when I upgraded with the Dell Venue KitKat 4.4 update. Now I can launch the application, but when I try to connect now (touch the "Connection off" circle, check the "I trust this application" and press "OK"), it says "Connecting..." for about 1 second then goes back to "Protection OFF" without giving any errors or messages.
I have tried the folowing:
Uninstall the app, then got to the Play store and redownload and install
Power off the device completely, then power back on
I use the Junos Pulse VPN app to connect to my work via VPN, and that is working just fine.
Is there an issue with Freedome on KitKat? Thanks for any help.
