*** NOTICE BY ADMINS ***
It has been brought to our attention you are attempting to use the OpenVPN Forum for advertising your service. As such, the post thread in question has been locked and a copy of this warning is attached at the post head.

In addition, the account of user 'RedRaider,' who purports to be a different user, posts from the same IP in a favorable light on the thread. This violates the rules of this forum, as clearly stated at the top.

I have just recently come across a free VPN service called VPN Steel. You may find more info and get an account by going to URL REMOVED. There's also a forum for it at URL REMOVED.

Well, I think that the service is fast most of the time on most sites (for some reason, there's a lot of lag on ToonamiAftermath.com). The only problems I have with it are the aforementioned lag/speed issue (which OpenVPN is reporting as a "Replay-window backtrack occurred" error) and that some sites are detecting it as being located in The Netherlands/Indonesia even though the server is hosted in the USA. Hopefully the admin will be able to find a better hosting provider so that those two issues will be fixed.

Btw, I can't vote on my own poll (which probably means that other users wouldn't be able to do so either).

are you on wireless? This is a common error when you are on wireless... the manual mentions it and how to silence it.

Nope, I'm not on a wireless connection since I have a direct connection to my Wireless Router (Apple Time Capsule) via Ethernet. Maybe someone who knows how to fix it could make an account on the site so he/she could post a message in the forums there on how to do so.

Well, no one can vote on my poll because of that error. Please fix it.
