Visa fullständig version : Question about relakks


2006-09-14, 01:48
Hi. I've just subscribed Relakks for a month and, after a DIFFICULT configuration, I get it to work.



The problem is: I'm from Italy and in Italy, for some reasons too long to explain, some sites of gambling, casinos and so on are censored by the State thus making them not viewable from Italy. Instead you get a screenshot warning you that the site is not reachable from italy etc. This kind of censorship is managed directly from the ISPs which filters the communications to the "illegal" servers.



Well, after configuring relakks i thought:"with my brand new swedish IP I'll for sure be able to see the illegal sites without being prompted with that silly screenshot!".



I tried and...I got the screenshot! Despite the VPN and the different IP I haven't been able to see the website.



I tried to work a bit with the DNS stuff but I always got the damned screenshot?



So the question is: have I messed around too much with the configuration for the policies for L2PT or: at which point does my ISP realize that I'm trying to see a forbidden website (even if my traffic is encrypted) thus preventing me from seeing it?



Any response would be greatly appreciated.



Bye and keep up the good work.

It sounds like you do not have it configured correctly, however we need to know

more about your environment so start the VPN, check out that you get the error

and then create the C:\ipconfig.txt file from a DOS prompt (Start->Run write cmd) on Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista and type the following:



ipcnfig /all > C:\ipconfig.txt



Attach the file to your next posting and I or someone else will check it out,

you may also want to let us know the blocked sites you are trying to reach

and I and other people using and not using Relakks can check out in case

it's somehow blocked.

I belive only until recently Relakks did not provide DNS.



I think they are providing that now.



Last time I checked, I had a 3rd DNS server listed while I was dialed up.

Maybe try OpenDNS.
