    I am using 10.8.3 on a 2011 iMac.

    I have subscribed to a VPN service (HideMyAss). It was working fine at one point. I screwed up my computer and had to reinstall Mountain Lion last year.

    Since then I cannot get the VPN client for HMA to work. It starts up and cannot find any servers. I restarted, uninstalled, reinstalled and no luck. This is the error messages that come up

    loadIpInfo. Retrying... Attempt 4 of 10...
    loadConfigFile Could not connect to the server.


    after the 10 attempts I get this message...

    I then tried to set up PPTP natively within Mountain Lion Network settings...it all sets up fine but when I try to connect I get an error message immediately when I try to connect to the VPN

    Any ideas on what is going on? I get the feeling this is a OSX issue, not a HMA client issue... Is it possible to reinstall the network components of Mountain Lion?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Ideas:

    o The server address should be entered in the Network Preferences for the VPN entry without the http://

    o In the Advanced pane of the Network Preferences, select the TCP/IP tab, try checking the Configure ipv4 to Using PPP and Configure ipv6 to Automatically.

    o In the Proxies tab, uncheck all the protocol tick-boxes


    Hope one of these might help.

    Try Clearing up all the registry file of HMA and then re install the whole thing... It worked for me ...
