A problem with the Windows VPN connection

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 IOT

I'm in need of assistance with this...

I have no trouble accessing any webpage when I have a regular internet connection. However, when I use a VPN (Hotspot Shield), the site seems to be inaccessible. However, when I put anything into Google search, it displays all of the results and everything, but I can't access any of the links or my company Metalica Forging inc

@surbhijain -- there are 2 paths to any web-site:


  1. your computer -> your Internet provider -> Internet -> web-site;]
  2. your computer -> your Internet provider -> Internet -> IP-address of VPN-server -> Internet -> web-site.

The path: VPN-server -> Internet -> Google's web-site  seems to be fine.


The "return" path usually is the inverse path.


If there is some problem between the VPN-server and that non-Google web-site, you see nothing.
