I can't use my work VPN from home. We have been trying different things for months to try to get it to work but without success.
I can succesfully connect to the VPN tunnel. It takes many seconds to verify password an log on to the system, and stays connected quite reliably. But when I open the brower to be able to see it, it times out at twenty seconds, very reliably, every time with a 'the connection has timed out' error. But the connection is still good.
My settings are right because I can connect from hotels, publlic wifi spots, no problems - anywhere but home, really! At first I blamed my old v1.5 homehub. But then we borrowed a netgear router from work, tested it at worked, no problems. Connected it at home, and I could surf, no problem. I could connect to my work VPN, but after that the same timeout error occurs, at 20 seconds.
I have tried using different browsers. No difference.
I have found other posts on the forum where it talks about opting out of web address help. This I have done several months ago, several times just to make sure!
