Today, twice now, OpenVPN timed out, stopped, and completely stalled my browser. The first time it happened around noon today, I tried to log back in a couple times and received error messages both times (sorry, didn't write down what it said.) I tried accessing this forum and couldn't connect to any web site at all. About 15 min later I tried again and OpenVPN connected and my browser also resumed working properly.
Just got home to find it happened again around 5:45. I reconnected to the VPN server ok this time with no error messages.
But my lingering question is: why does this keep happening and is anyone else having this same issue? Should I be using something else besides OpenVPN? I recall hearing about another VPN service that users are being pushed towards but I forget what it's called.
