I came across BlackVPN yesterday who have a iPad offering (UK connection to US servers): https://www.blackvpn.com/ I signed up for a month and set up the iPad accordingly and the VPN connected immediately. OK I thought now lets try some apps ie. ABC player etc. Now the problems occur, as soon as you start an app the connection drops with an error message saying "connection dropped by communications device, check your settings etc". The settings are OK (PPTP) and as I said the VPN does connect and stays connected until you start an app. BlackVPN support have so far not provided an answer, their last comments was "thats weird!". Has anyone had experiences with BlackVPN with an iPad or anything else? Can anyone suggest an alternative VPN source (access to US server from UK). I do not want to spend alot more money on this if there are issues with my local network so I'm looking for an alternative to try (short term subscription perhaps). Any ideas or suggestions??
