New guy troubles

Fri Jul 15, 2016 1:59 am

New here. In Canada
Registered.
Tried the trial version.
Added 2 rules.
selected Paris FR
seemed to start up (Icon in systray)
lasted for about 15 seconds then just shut down.
Use w/10, and all the included virus,malware etc that comes with it.
Tried a shutdown/restart.
Still crashes.
Any help, please

Well it seemed to work after I did a shutdown and restart, at least so far (10 mins).
"what is my IP" showed Paris.
Did an ookla on the server, a wee bit slower than I am used to. Download is acceptable. Upload is 1/3 of what I am used to.
How long can I expect to use the free trial before I need to buy.?
Do you use the "openvpn" software.?

The trial version of HideAway goes into a Pause mode every so often, so it no longer redirects in that phase. There's no other restrictions that I'm aware of.

We are working on version 2, which does have an improved upload rate, but I can't say when that will be ready, it already seems a few weeks overdue :/

thank you for the reply.
I understand the 5 minute shutdown now.
that is a hindrance for me, because of the way I use the software.
A lot of what I do gets done through the nite, and I am not up to restart it.
I already have a very pricey vpn client, but my contract expires mid August.
I guess I'll have to make a decision then.
