Hi Pedrogs,

 

You need to use the App, you can't manually setup the VPN connection. It is unlikely the app will cut the download however if for some reason your internet connection fails long enough to break the tunnel, then the connection would be momentarily interrupted. Perhaps you could use a download manager in order to be able to resume the downloads.

 

Regards,

Hi, thanks for the answer although I had to search it quite some time. Maybe you should update the post for up-to-date information or include the answer in FAQ section.

 

Some VPN providers allow users to set up the VPN connection manually in cases where app install is not possible. For e.g. my employer does not allow the VPN software on Windows workstations (it will be uninstalled silently upon next login), but I am able to set up the VPN connection manually in network settings. The other VPN provider gives specific instructions to this, with country-specific VPN addresses, as well as separate username and password - everything included in the subscription.

 

I'd really like to be able to use Freedome VPN on manual connections as well. Although Freedome app is nice and easy to use, it's just not enough for all cases.
