Hi,

We are using Viscosity (for Windows 7) and openvpn (for XP Pro).

We cannot access to our VPN server and got this message from Viscosity:-
"A valid network to the remote server does not exist. Please make sure your computer has a valid network connection and try again. Viscosity can leave this connection disconnected, or it can automatically connect it when a valid network becomes available"

Below is the error message which captured from Windows XP system using OpenVPN:-

Please advise on how to resolve this issue. Already 4 days we cannot access to the VPN.

Thank you.

Hi Ian,

I believe we may have already addressed this one via email, but basically "mymazars.dyndns.org" is not a valid address (it has no DNS record associated with it). dyndns.org addresses are typically associated with a dynamic DNS - most likely you'll need to log into your dyndns.org account (or whoever set it up) and fix up the DNS record for the domain.

Cheers,
James
