Internet Access Via VPN Client

I’ve tried to use the VPN client to connect to the Internet in the library and at Hibbs. The client will not log in, (Remote host not responding). I know I can just use my browser to get onto the network, “partialy” but I would like to use the other connections that the VPN offers. Why won’t the VPN client work any longer?

    I have the same issue and I can’t figure out what the cause is. Sometimes the VPN works but more often than not I just get the Remote Host not responding error. I did notice last time that it DID work, I was connected to the wireless network only on the b (11mbps) spectrum for some reason. I don’t know if this is the cause but maybe more testing could be done. Perhaps certain wireless hubs allow VPN connections while others do not, and it just depends on which one is closest to you and the time determining which one you are using.
