My IP address has changed after disconnecting Hideaway

Mon Jan 17, 2022 5:03 am

I have a static IP address. I connected to Hideaway's French server. When I disconnected Hideaway my IP address remained stuck with the French server IP address. I can still connect to any Hideaway servers but my IP address remains that of the French one and not my UK static IP address. My other PC does not have Hideaway and has the same problem. Any suggestions please? I'm running Windows 10 64bit.

Panic over - I unticked "Automatically detect settings" in Automatic Proxy Setup and although it says those settings don't apply to VPN connections I now have my static IP address back.
