    i don't think i did anything special-- just some update fixed the problem. now the only problem is it doesn't automatically (re)connect at startup or after getting disconnected.

    Re: How to setup VPN to use the Ipredator.se service

    I run Ubuntu netbook remix 9.04. Before my recent reinstall vpn.ipredator.se worked just fine. After the necessary reinstall of UNR I did exactly as described but I get the error message popped up saying "the vpn client service fail to start" when I select the correctly configured vpn connection. Any thoughts?

    Re: How to setup VPN to use the Ipredator.se service

    I've lost my connection several times now. I contacted support and was told to lower my connections, which did nothing, still lost the vpn. I have it now set at (Wine, uTorrent) at upload 45 kB/s, down 55kB/s, Global max 75, max peers per torrent 25, upload slot 4 (more if up speed less than 90%), and net max halfopen 20.

    Its worked for the past day, but that doesn't really mean anything as it worked for the first 4 days or so OK.

    Is there anyway to keep the connection being reset to the non-vpn once the connection drops? That is what really bugs me. No security there.

    Ipredator support said about 40 connections max is what is stable. I changed my global max & max peers connected to 35. Now the connection seems OK. I probably will also set the firewall to prevent a non-VPN connection from being inadvertently established.

    Lost Ipredator connection again. According to SwissVPN, a router firewall is what should be used to prevent a re-establishing of a non-VPN connection after the VPN connection fails. I got a DL-604 router that is now configured to prevent an outgoing connection except to link to the router and to the VPN tunnel.

    Interesting commentary on IPREDator: http://www.p2pnet.net/story/24418

    SwissVPN is cheaper and has OpenVPN. Got a response from SwissVPN on their speed:

    We're offering OpenVPN as
    it is much more reliable in networks where providers try to block services.

    We provide 5'000/2'000 Kbit/s at our ports - please take into account
    that all traffic is being routed through Switzerland.
    Depending on application additional latency may reduce performance.

    After using ipredator for 3 months, i'm giving up on it and have gone over to swissvpn and their openvpn service. They're cheaper and offer openvpn, if they're better or worse remains to tell however!

    I am trying hard to make PPTP work though network manager on Karmic, but with no luck. I have installed Network-manager-pptp pptp-linux and more... but still it says that VP fails to start. Here is my output from tail -f /var/log/syslog while I try to connect to VPN twice:

    Please help me make this work, I've tried googling everywhere without any success. This is a critical feature we need in Ubuntu!
