vpngate - can't connect to any ovpn server today

Post by at433 » Sun Apr 02, 2017 1:25 am

i just use openvpn client on win10 pc, it always worked fine except today any connect attempt fails for any of the http://www.vpngate.net/en/ servers.

all logs seem to show same kinda error:
Sun Apr 02 04:06:01 2017 VERIFY ERROR: depth=3, error=self signed certificate in certificate chain: C=SE, O=AddTrust AB, OU=AddTrust External TTP Network, CN=AddTrust External CA Root
Sun Apr 02 04:06:01 2017 OpenSSL: error:14090086:SSL routines:ssl3_get_server_certificate:certificate verify failed
Sun Apr 02 04:06:01 2017 TLS_ERROR: BIO read tls_read_plaintext error
Sun Apr 02 04:06:01 2017 TLS Error: TLS object -> incoming plaintext read error
Sun Apr 02 04:06:01 2017 TLS Error: TLS handshake failed


i tried using udp, tcp, ddns and ip config files, same failure.
i even reinstalled the client to latest openvpn-install-2.4.1-I601.exe

Hi, I am also seeing this same problem for a couple of days.

Here is what I'm seeing in the log repeating over and over again:

Sun Apr 02 01:47:44 2017 WARNING: No server certificate verification method has been enabled. See http://openvpn.net/howto.html#mitm for more info.

Sun Apr 02 01:47:45 2017 Restart pause, 2 second(s)


Sometimes the log will stop with a different message. At that point it's hung and I have to disconnect to get out of the "frozen" state.

From the error, it seems that maybe one of the certificate authority systems in the chain has stopped working?

is it too much for us to ask some knowledgeble moderator of this forum to explain the root cause of the issue?

PS: in the meantime if anybody needs urgently some temporary solution use some trialware vpn (i installed hide.me vpn, decent ping, no need for much traffic if you just playing a game, they give 2gb free traffic), theres others too like hotspotshield, etc.
anyone welcome to list other free alternatives

How should a moderator of this forum know anything about VPNGate servers ?

If you have a problem with a VPN Service provider then go ask the provider about it.

If you want to post your gripes here then go for it ..
But don't expect help from any forum moderators because that is not what they are here for.


This forum does not provide free support for any VPN Service providers !
