I have F-Secure FREEDOME on my mac and iphone, I am using a public wifi network that requires a log in and probably blocks proxy ports, but the iOS version of FREEDOME seems to connect fine, whilst the Mac OS version just spins reading 'connecting' without any progress.
I connect to the wifi network without FREEDOME on in order to log in to the service, but then cannot connect FREEDOME on the mac, but can on the iphone.
Is there any way that I can configure the mac OS version of FREEDOME to connect on this network? The iOS version seems to connect with ease, and surely it is possible to replicate this on the mac OS.
Have you tried to connect to a different network using your Mac and iPhone and see if the Mac works in a different network?
My guess is that the admin of that Wi-Fi network might have blocked the other VPN protocol through the network as mentioned in this article here.
The mac and iphone both work on other networks, I suspect that you are correct in terms of OpenVPN being blocked on this particular network. I have previosuly read all of these articles, but I cannot change the setup of the router / network. Is there any way that i can use another protocol from my mac?
The options as of now is to use a different network for the Mac or request the Wi-Fi provider to allow the VPN protocol.
