    BTW, the forums are still not working correctly.  There is an update that just came out today that might fix the issue.  Or it might break the site further, I guess we will find out ;).

    I did a clean install of 5.75 just to be safe.

    I still have that issue where it can’t connect to the internet sometimes. My VPN has a killswitch so when it first starts connecting.

    Sometimes manually starting a WLC scan will fix this problem. Any time that doesn’t work, making my VPN disconnect with the killswitch doing its thing and then reconnecting fixes this problem.

    One way to fix this would be to make VS’s reconnect attempt frequency more often. any time it can’t connect when an alert shows, it should try to connect again while the countdown is happening

    Yeah, VPN’s are great and all, but they certainly add a lot of opportunity for errors.

    There are currently 5 retries, and each has a 3 second timeout.  Please let me know if you have an idea of how we should adjust this to see if we can fix your VPN issue.  We might actually want to adjust the timeout to 5 or so and test.  Maybe the connection is timing out before the next retry?

    Under “UI Tweaks” just give the user an option to enable a second countdown for the reconnect attempts. the default would be 20 seconds and during that time there would be one reconnect attempt after another until the timer is done.

    Thank you for the suggestion, we can consider adding an option if we think it is necessary.  I am hoping we can make the timeout work well for everyone without having to make it an option.  Either way, we can only have so many attempts… we do not want to put it in an infinite loop.

    Dan, I installed a licensed VS on my wife’s laptop a while ago.  She’s been using it just fine.

    Well, she bought a new laptop and “donated” her old one to me.  Of course, she is the “owner” and she is the “user”.  So, I wanted to create a new login for me; which I was going to make an administrator account.  After making a new user account, I logged in under that new account.  VS gave an error message that it couldn’t connect to the server and shutdown.

    So, I logged out as the new user (me) and logged her back in.  And, upon logging her back in, I received the same VS error.  It said something about not being able to connect to the server and said that I needed to reboot to connect to the server.

    BTW–I haven’t rebooted yet.

    I hope the above makes sense.
