Xirvik  Vpn

First of all my laungig is not English so my spelling is very wrong but lets se if we
can make a bit sence out of this - I am Trying to conket Xirvik VPN
after paying I get a Mail including a zip file as you see here :

xx

Xirvik

It written in the mail :
"The software we use is OpenVPN, which you can download here:

http://openvpn.net/index.php/downloads.html

(This seems good
Installation Package (Both 32-bit and 64-bit TAP driver included):
I Downloade : openvpn-2.0.9-gui-1.0.3-install.exe)

or here (for the Windows GUI version)

http://openvpn.se/download.html

The attached .zip files includes your certificate and a sample config
file (which works as it is if you have a direct internet connection).

In Windows you would copy the contents in this directory: C:\Program
Files (x86)\OpenVPN\config

We are aware that setting up VPN access may be a bit tricky if you
haven't done it before. However once it's correctly set up it works
smoothly. If you have problems or questions please contact us, we'll
be happy to walk you through it.

Xirvik "

(an we will later see the info in the e-mail has not nearly enough info)

Ok I downloade at http://openvpn.se/download.html install softwaere
now I need to extrakt the zip files into here :
C:\Program Files (x86)\OpenVPN\config

Here it is :



Xirvik

An now it s done

Xirvik

I open the softwaere no username an password is need so I Connect


Xirvik VPN access

An I am "online"

Xirvik VPN access

now I wona tjek if Xirvik VPN access is woorking so i go to
http://www.ip-adress.com/
My IP address is: is the same as it has been all the time -
not much sence to paying for an VPN solution than

I have a kind og a simular VPN solution let s see how that is doing
VPNtunnel  /  https://www.vpntunnel.se/en



I Connect
write my username an pasword

Xirvik


it s online I tjek the ip
http://www.ip-adress.com/

AN IT S woorking  ( so easy can it be)

Xirvik


But VPNtunnel  is A slow VPN solution an I know from a frind
http://www.xirvik.com/ have some of the best seed box so why not give it a chance an tjek if there VPN
solutions is great as well ... I dont know if that s answer there ever will be given a qustion to after all it seems imposibel
to conekt - I send som e-mail xirvik that tell me that the info whit the first e-mail is not nearly enough I have to go to
tutorial in our page. www.xirvik.com => Tutorials => VPN
let s see whats happening there

I am using xp so it most be here I will finn my info
http://www.xirvik.com/tutorial_en_openvpn.html#windows

It s a kind of a strange Manual thats jumping around betwin Xp Vista an 7 an no of it is really the same
but the conklusion most be that I have to deal whit a file named xirvik_vpn.ovpn open with notepad

it should loke like this

xx





But it does not look like that an the txt the file shoul containe
has no simalarity what wwritte about xirvik_vpn.ovpn
on http://www.xirvik.com/tutorial_en_openvpn.html#windows

here it is :

vv


Xirvik VPN access one can say  $7.95 / month is not a great loos
as it s advertist on http://www.xirvik.com/vpn.html but still it s a lot for noething ..
I dont really know if It can woork or not - but it is strange when so many other VPN providers can make
a solution that takes about 5 minuts to set up - that Xirvik VPN  can make it so dificult - if i really is woorking ?

well it never woork out

we hat a long e-mail corspondence as you can see here :

         Well in that case I have to admit I am Lost
         on page http://www.xirvik.com/tutorial_en_openvpn.html
         as you refer to it says
         I qvote : " Open the file titled xirvik_vpn.ovpn with notepad or another text editor such as textpad.
         See the example below. "

         so I open xirvik_vpn.ovpn as I send you ( or i Thougt i did at leats it s the name of the file)

         well feuter down at  http://www.xirvik.com/tutorial_en_openvpn.html

         is says :

         At the very end of the document/configuration file enter the following code to route all traffic through the VPN. Don't forget to replace everything in parentheses with the proper information.

         redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp

         # Any DNS can go here
         dhcp-option DNS (Primary DNS)
         dhcp-option DNS (Secondary DNS)

         Here is an example of the code, with real information.
         If you're unsure about your DNS, you may use OpenDNS which is free and very good.
         Copy the code below exactly if you'd like to use OpenDNS.

         redirect-gateway def1 bypass-dhcp

         *******************************'-----------***************************

         so I geus some or all of That got to be copy pastet into something wich acroding to the page ( http://www.xirvik.com/tutorial_en_openvpn.html )
          should be : xirvik_vpn.ovpn

         if it s not the xirvik_vpn.ovpn file as written what is it so ? an is it placed in the folder config ? the sub folder on OpenVPN ?

    From:     My Name <my@mail.com
    To:     Xirvik support <support@xirvik.com


    Now I am Geting a bit confused as I understand I have send you a 2 days old xirvik_vpn.ovpn file

    You write : "The xirvik_vpn.ovpn in the .zip file you sent me is two days old and doesn't have that anywhere in the file."
    what is the point to what you are writing ??? I mean it opens more quastions than answers I might be dence but I never hat so much trouble whit
    a vpn before ... I am a bit facinatet that it s woorking whitout being woorking see http://chokmah.dk/Xirvik/4c.jpg on http://chokmah.dk/Xirvik.html

    well thats what you are writting to be clear :

    1.) should I have another one ?
          if :
    2.) how should I get it ?
    3.) What is the two days old xirvik_vpn.ovpn : doesent have ?

    I have understod that the xirvik_vpn.ovpn is an important file

    from the page it says ( I Know I repeat my self)
    http://www.xirvik.com/tutorial_en_openvpn.html
    "Open the file titled xirvik_vpn.ovpn with notepad or another text editor such as textpad"

    is mine not real ?
    what is wrong ?

    I mean after all a xirvik_vpn.ovpn is pretty much a txt file - if it s in your prower can you send me a new an woorking xirvik_vpn.ovpn file ?

    do you have an onlince chat service ?

    regards

    I have been corsponding whit you support -
    there is 2 posibilities

    1.) The system does not really woork you can see here how I been woorking whit it here http://chokmah.dk/Xirvik.html
    2.) I dont understand the answers I get - I have a felling that I am asking about one thing an get an answer to something else

    The first mail says : "We are aware that setting up VPN access may be a bit tricky if you

    haven't done it before...." I hat more than 8 diferen VPN soulution in my life none of them has taken me more than 5 minuts to set up

    haven't done it before.

    ( se the mail corspondence under this)

    I know that it not much but if it s not woorking I would like a refound
