Error 13 always pop out since May 21

Post by sis » Sun May 25, 2014 2:33 pm

Hello, there is something wrong with the vpngate on my computer. Since May 21, when I connect to the servers in the vpngate list, sometime it 's successfully connected but the network icon on the system tray shows no internet access and there is a yellow exclamatory mark on the icon, after a few seconds it will disconnect automatically and shows error code 13, like this

Error (Error Code 13):
Time-out occurred during VPN session communication. It is possible the connection from the client to the VPN Server has been disconnected.

sometime it 's successfully connected without a yellow exclamatory mark on network icon on the system tray but the network not working can't surf any website and after about one minute it will disconnect automatically and shows error code 13

No matter how many times i tried restart computer or shut down the computer power, the problem still exists. But some servers work fine, it can connect and works like normal, while most of the servers fail. I don't know if that's the modem problem or the vpngate problem, but it works fine without connecting to the vpn on my computer , it seems the modem is ok. I tried download the latest version vpngate on the official site and reinstall it, problem still exists.

I have try some other vpn service, for example some openvpn, all work fine without the problem mentioned above, and that problem just happened recently, vpngate works very well before, I think it's really the vpngate problem, but I can't find anyone post the similar question here anyone help fix the problem.

I am using windows 8.1 64bit and the latest version vpngate build 9437.

I received a problem about ip doesn't change after connection.
I don't know why it happen. I think your network environment was very unique.

In China, there is Great Firewall. Perhaps GFW staffs are doing good jobs.

Hope your team of elite will solve the problem of Error code 13, the Vpngate is a very great free tool to bypass the restraint in China, the speed is better than many pay vpn, but 9 out of 10 servers encounter the problem posted and I have to use the pay vpn one day, that's bad, hope you can fix the problem thanks very much

@dnobori

WOW! Seriously? So this is your response? That we should congratulate the Chinese staff taking care of GFW ? What is the point of a VPN that would be blockable by them? This kind of response is ridiculous. They have been doing their best for years... and havent' stopped stuff like Freegate not to mention this and you're telling people on this board that the problem might be because of China? OMG... what a lame answer.

hi shen69 do you have any free or paid vpn recommendation , the vpngate no working anymore in China, I can hardly find a working server, I try some free vpn and the speed is very slow can't even load a website like google, but many paid vpn get negative comments, eg, some users say hidemyass sometime no server working and with slow speed, hope you introduce a good and not too expensive vpn service

@sis

Wish I had. I've been using mostly Freegate, Ultrasurf and some website proxies which don't have full usability. Like ninjacloak.com but that's not good for Facebook or Youtube.

Now with OpenVPN stuck it's a bummer. Well on the plain openVPN from the openvpn.net when I get the config files from some servers from the list on Tsukuba it can work... for few hours or so on UDP... but then next day it won't. Been using OpenVPN for over half year and till recently everything was fine and dandy.

SoftEther is better at the moment with their SSL-VPN but many servers are terribly slow and unstable for me.

Also make sure you use a proper dns like the google or opendns one.

I tried stuff like Tunnelbear and other vpn programs but they didn't work at all. So only that openvpn and this softether really did some job. Maybe websites with their private servers would be more reliable, outside of Tsukuba's project? Try freevpn[dot]me

Which surprisingly isn't blocked in China... but I couldn't ever get good speed there. There's also VPNpassport also worked in the past but haven't used that for months.

Someone on this forum from Beijing said that SunVPN (only paid option available) might be good. So if you want to try a paid one might wanna give that one a try.

Regards.

I have the same problem or rather I have two. error code 2 and error code 13.
Has anyone got any answers to these two problems. I have two other VPN services that I can fall back on. Cheers

The VPNGATE is no longer working in China, most servers get the error 13 problem, you can hardly find a working one, some openvpn configure file on the homepage is working but not stable, it may stop or disconnect anytime, and the vpngate staff seems not going to fix the problem as the problem exists for almost a month, I think we should share the other working and good vpn in the forum so users in China can still break the network restraint without the vpngate, I tried most free vpn I found in google, just ultrasurf is working sometime, others is either unconnectable or with very slow speed can't even load a webpage, have you some good free vpn with fast network or the good paid vpn recommendation, as you said you have two other vpn services , can you share here

I have this problem. looks like the clowns operating the silly GFW might have something to do with this problem. try www.zenmate.com it's a free google plugin and encrypts everything. watch youtube. facebook and any other site. even in China.

Another VPN worth trying is Astrill. use it is stealth mode or open web and set it to port 443 and tick the proxy box in the middle. you also have goagent which is free.

I tried the Astrill trial and I don't think the speed is good enough, and it just offers few servers for trial so I don't even know if every server is connectable, and it's a bit expensive, as for goagent it's too complicated and seems it has bandwith limit, have you try hidemyass, it seems very popular but I never try it, I can see some bad comments on hidemyass vpn, can you share some information about hidemyass

its about you network adapter is unpluged or not responding, please check your adapter first. Control panel>Network and sharing center>change adapter setting, then connect the VPN.
