Hi everyone!

I used SoftEther in order to pass through a Norton's firewall from my building whose share connection, but it seems they reinforce their security since the last week.
Normally, I use the VPN to go to my blog wordpress, usually blocked by Norton. But now, my connection to the vocal Discord where I chat with my friends is also blocked.

The VPN errors are also numerous since this event: errors code 1 and errors code 17 appear usually in Asian servers before, but now, I can't also use the European ones (Russian federation usually).

Norton seems to reinforce the security.

I tryed another VPN like Frozenway and it's work. So the problem is probably due to a Softethernet's connection configuration.

The error code 1 should be resolve by time synchronization, but nothing happen.

Is there something in this site whose describe each errors a their solution (I wasn't get something in the FAQ)?

EDIT: I tryed after that to open Steam: look like the connection to Steam is also impossible without a VPN now...

EDIT2: Regarding this new post: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=8262 , and after some documentation on openDNS, the cause is not openDNS, but Norton.

About the "error code 1", I found this video:

But that's don't work, nobody have an idea?

Is there are something I must do in the setting (actually, I let it in the default setting)?

Do you report spam posts when you see them, I do. In fact, this morning alone I reported eighty (yes, 80) spam posts on these forums including the ones in this thread. I doubt very much that it helps but I wnat to annoy someone enough that they'll do something about it. :) I don't think my tactics are working as most of the posts (and the spammers) have been around for years and any thread I start on this topic gets dutifully ignored by everyone of the forum moderators/admins and the project owner.

There was a thread started on gitgub last November and titled "is this project dead" and others about spam, there was a long(ish) discussion about forking or having an additional branch that was more frequently updated but that seems to have fizzled out and there's no response from the project owner about the status.

If nothing is done about the spam and apparent lack of development for this product it's just going to wither and die, I hope not because I enjoy the simplicity (for my set-up) of building, installation and configuration but I might have to move to something else - yeuk!!

This is a great product but it needs to make some movement forward.

PS I hope you don't mind me attaching my little rant to your thread, have a good day. :)

Using another VPN software, I tried to connect again to a VPN from SoftEthernet: I stop get any error code 1 & 17.

That mean Norton get a solution to block VPN connection thought SoftEthernet (OpenVPN and Frozenway still working).

https://www.symantec.com/security_respo ... asid=21273

I think it's due to unstealthy IP Address of the host: IP visible mean they can be blacklisted and blocked by Norton....

You must improve the software in sort of the IP address of the host are unknown!

I think name resolution is blocked by the firewall.
