Re: BT Fon access problems

It seems the access to Fon and openzone has been resolved (on HH3, any joy on HH2?), so I can't work out why the pages are being restricted? Surely this is a BT server side issue and not much we can do on our ends, apart from let them know?

Re: BT Fon access problems

tbh I'd say they're more than likely aware of this, but have not passed this on to us, the customer.

 

(note how we found out about the hub2 issue - beginning of this thread)

 

 

I hope I can be corrected.....

 

but after recent off forum events, I'm past caring nowSmiley Sad

Re: BT Fon access problems

Not exactly forthwith in the information dissemination field are they? 😉

As you say, it wouldn't be so bad if they made people aware of this, then let us know the progress of the fix. 😞

Re: BT Fon access problems

This post is brought to you via CISCO VPN and BT Openzone 🙂

So VPN seems to work, hard to tell in an external kind of way, but seems to report all ok 🙂

Had to enter the download file address directly, not just its parent page. Btopenzone dot com still not accessible via FON or Openzone connnections.

I'll update this post with the links once I'm logged back on through my normal connection 🙂

 

Links: (you must be logged into BT Openzone or FON to use these links)

Win 7, XP, Vista (32 bit) https://my.btopenzone.com/vpn/windows/BT_Wi-Fi_VPN_Client_V1_32bit.exe

Win 7, XP, Vista (64 bit) https://my.btopenzone.com/vpn/windows/BT_Wi-Fi_VPN_Client_V1_64bit.exe

Mac OS X https://my.btopenzone.com/vpn/apple/mac/BT_Wi-Fi_VPN_Client_V1.dmg

iOS (3.0 or greater) https://my.btopenzone.com/vpn/apple/iOS/BT_Wi-Fi_VPN_Profile.mobileconfig

 

For Windows:

 

How to install

Once downloaded, go to where you have saved the file on your laptop, double click on the file, click 'OK' to install and then follow the on screen instructions.

How to use

Once you're connected and logged in at a BT Openzone or BT FON hotspot, go to All Programs, locate the Cisco VPN client and double click to launch. Then you only need to press Connect to set up your secure VPN. Remember to always log out of your VPN, before you log out of BT Openzone or BT FON.

Re: BT Fon access problems

(scratches ones head)

 

I found the links you've given when I was using Openzone, but never clicked to install it (as I wasn't too keen to try it without good reports on it). Maybe the method you tried was a different one to the one I would of used...

 

You've got me curious now.....

Re: BT Fon access problems

If you access the links outside of bt openzone or FON you'll get a server not found page.

the way I tried was the only way I could think of a work around.

Not sure on how we could test VPN, seems to alter my IP on my side and my firewall picks up the change; so to seems to work. But I imagine we need one of the enlightened to guide us 😉

The Cisco VPN client seems a good idea for hotspots, esp as Cisco seem to have a good rep in networking.

 

edit: just so your aware, the VPN client only works for FON & Openzone. It won't work under normal connections (not for me anyway)

Re: BT Fon access problems

Hmm, why is BTOpenzone showing as per this

(note the privacy section)

 

wtf.JPG

 

Yet it should be the same as BTFON

 

Is inSSIDer is playing up?

Re: BT Fon access problems

I've noticed this one on psk security connections, rather than put wpa2-psk it puts rsna-ccmp.

Yes it should be the same as FON, mine is. Does the WIN O/S wireless search show security on the connection?

 

edit: re the SSID disappearing, if you go to time graph you should see Openzone FON and your own SSID are all the same colour and actually rotate through. Seems just to be a reporting bug for the normal display
