So I've a PureVPN connection working great in Windows. But when I try to use it in latest Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS, it
- Using PPTP, connects for a minute, offers no internet service, and then disconnects
- Using OpenVPN, connects but is EXTREMELY slow
- Using SSTP, connects but is EXTREMELY slow
I tried contacting PureVPN support and all they offered me to toggle different settings, switch servers, try TCP or UDP in OpenVPN and see if things get better; which all sound like not-so-great tech support of a VPN company. They seemed like just trying to get through the chat session.
I've tried numerous solutions found online but none worked. I've tried command line configuration and GUI cofiguration, none worked. The only thing holding me back from completely switching to Ubuntu is this VPN issue. I hope it'll get it resolved using stackexchange's amazing communities help :) I know this is not an active site like stackoverflow but I'm still asking (which shows the level of desperation I'm having LOL)
P.S. I'm not a regular Linux user (trying to switch from windows)
