Alternate Connection Software

Some clients experience issues with DNS blocking or inability to connect with the core software. This can be caused by other apps installed blocking the connection or carrier modifications causing issues with the core connection. When this happens we suggest trying VPNCilla for the connection. They offer a trial, and if it works you will want need to upgrade to the paid version (not covered under the WiTopia subscription). VPNCilla offers some advantages over the internal software such as auto connect on application start, auto reconnect of connect, manual dns updates, mtu adjustments etc.

Setup VPNCilla
  1. Install VPNCilla Trial
  2. Open application
  3. click plus sign at top to create new connection
  4. Name of the new connection?: anything you want, we suggest the location so Atlanta or London etc
  5. Fill the needed items
