BT WIFI VPN Client

I am trying to download the BT WIFI VPN client from here:

 

http://www.btwifi.com/help/security/vpn-software.jsp

 

However the WIndows link points to the old btopenzone site, can someone in BT correct the link please?

 

Regards

 

Ian

Re: BT WIFI VPN Client

I have just logged into BT Wifi, and can download the VPN client without any problem. You need to be logged into a BT Wifi Hotspot to download it.

 

Here is the link to use when you are logged into BT Wifi.

 

https://my.btopenzone.com/vpn/windows/BT_Wi-Fi_VPN_Client_V1_32bit.exe

 

If its the 64 bit version you want, then alter the last bit to 64bit.exe

 

So the link is fine.

Its not easy to find, as even the link on the BT Wifi page takes you to the wrong place. The trick is to look on the BTOpenzone pages.

 

I have added that link to my website.

Re: BT WIFI VPN Client

Does BT know that the Cisco VPN client that it offers is no longer suported by Cisco and is outdated.

Also the VPN client isnt suported in Windows 8 or 8.1.

I have downloded the free VPN and had a lot of trouble getting it to work,difficulty connecting, constant cutting out, freezeing my computer when it connects and so on, i tried everything from reinstalling it to upgrading to the last version before Cisco stopped supporting it (5.0.07.0440) and the problem still continued untill i finally got fedup and purchased a VPN.

 

Why does BT offer a VPN that isnt supported by Cisco anymore? Is outdated? and doesnt work on Windows 8 or 8.1?

Does BT plan to offer another one in the future??

Hi TinPot,

 

I think BT Retail have stopped offering the free VPN software for their BTWifi service. This could be due to the newer "BTWifi-X" SSID being transmitted which uses the IEEE 802.1X authentication protocol and a certificate.

Re: BT WIFI VPN Client

So I downloaded, tried to install and got the message

Error 28011 Windows 64-bit is not supported by Cisco Systems VPN Client 5.007.0290!!

Really useful - especially when  my regular VPN refuses to connect to a BT Hotspot
