If you can’t connect from behind a restrictive firewall, try doing the following:

1)Quit the VPN4ALL software.

2)Then make sure that your computer is indeed connected to the Internet and that you are able to access a web resource like, for example, yahoo.com.

3)In Windows, launch your VPN4ALL software with Administrator permission (right-click on the VPN4ALL shortcut on your desktop and select "Run as Administrator").

4)In VPN4ALL software, go to Menu > Options > Advanced and “Enable Point-to-Point Connection”. Click “Save”. Make to says “Yes” when prompted to restart your VPN4ALL software.

5)In VPN4ALL software, go to Menu > Options > Advanced and “Enable TCP Servers”. Click “Save”.

Go back to the main screen of your VPN4ALL software and try to connect.
