say that these are the dns server

10.14.203.33
10.14.203.7

did you mean i have to put this in the network configuration manually ...???
thanks
Yes, for some reason many have had to do this to connect properly to a VPN server. You just type them in where is says DNS servers in your IPv4 properties window. You can probably type them into your advanced TCP/ip window which would allow you to type in info for each network you need to connect too.

Please do an ipconfig /all and show us your VPN adapter and ethernet/wireless (whichever you're using) settings.

The dns servers for the VPN need to be the DNS servers for the location you are connecting to.

Turn the "use default gateway" back on now that you've manually added the DNS entries.

On a separate note, does your school require that you register your laptop or MAC address before being able to use the VPN client? Or is there a website you must navigate to in order to begin access once on the VPN?
