The VPN (Virtual Private Network) will allow you to access the internet through our servers with a secure encrypted connection. This allows you to bypass restrictions from your internet provider. You connect to the internet like usually. Then you connect a second time to our VPN Server. This process does not require any additional software. An anonymous and secure connection is provided so that you can enjoy the freedom you deserve.

Our service is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7 & Mac OS X. To use our service no additional software is required as we make use of the software in your operating system. We will send you all the information necessary to set up the connection once you order a plan.

You can use our service with the following applications: No particular configuration is required and traffic is routed via our server.

There are NO calling charges. You only pay the subscription fee to access our service.

With Liberty VPN Service you use the internet service provider (ISP) you already have. When your traffic is routed through our servers by a safe encrypted tunnel (VPN) your internet activities remain anonymous.

 

Hacking is based on getting your IP real address. When you use our service no matter what website you choose to visit, or send an email, use Skype etc. your real IP address is not provided to anyone. This is a great method to take against hacking.


Internet providers keep log files that record the activity of your IP address. These log files are sometimes saved indefinitely and may be given anyone who asks for them with or without a court order. This means that all your activities online are no longer private... BUT with our VPN service, an encrypted connection to a server will appear on your ISP log. One external IP address is used for all outgoing traffic from our server. Because this traffic is combined from many users it can not be separated even if someone tries it.

Please check your junk mail folder there is chance our email has been delivered there due to over zealous email filtering.

If it is not in your junk mail foler then contact us using our Contact Form OR by email support@libertyvpn.com.

OF COURSE! Once your account is created you will be able to use such programs anywhere in the world even if it has been blocked. Even if it is not blocked you may experience better quality of sound through a VPN.

If you can not send email using your ISP's mail server just configure your email program so that it sends through this SMTP server: 192.168.2.1

If you Disable 'Passive FTP' in your FTP client software then it should work.

Liberty VPN opposes any attempt to break any laws in any country. We work extremely hard in order to prevent any illegal activity, on our network, in accordance to the laws of our home country and those at the location of our servers.


The use of peer-2-peer networks (P2P) such as Bit Torrent is strictly prohibited and all orders are thoroughly screened for fraud. Virtual Private Network (VPN) usage is legal in the majority of countries with the exception of Cuba, Iran, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria.


Liberty VPN will not sell to people residing in the countries mentioned above. Furthermore, orders from Nigeria and Vietnam will be rejected because of the high possibility that it will be used for online fraud.


Access to certain websites and/or internet services as well as using VOIP, such as Skype, may be illegal in other countries with or without the use of a VPN. Liberty VPN service was designed to protect your privacy not to be used to bypass any laws.

  7. Input: Liberty VPN.
  8. Under 'set VPN server' input the IP address provided in the welcome mail.
  9. Disable encryption. It's necessary.
  10. Under 'DNS search domains' enter 208.67.222.222
  11. Press menu button on phone and select 'Save'.
  12. Now you should see Liberty VPN connection in list. Tap on it.
  13. Authorization window will appear. Enter your username and password (password is case sensitive).
  14. You should be successfully connected now.

 

For L2TP/IPSec connections:

 

Same as above but select the 'L2TP/IPsec with PSK' option in step 5.

If you are unable to connect to the VPN server here are some quick things to consider.

  1. The first thing to do with any error is restart the computer, router/modem. Then test the VPN connection.
  2. Type account details don't copy and paste and note the CAPS and in the password if any. Sometimes when you copy-paste the password a blank space is added at the end this will cause login to fail
  3. Try both L2TP IPsec, PPTP. With L2TP IPsec you will need to use a preshared key found in the welcome e-mail.
  4. If you are using a wireless connection, try the connection while connected via a cable directly to the modem.
  5. Please check your firewall software. Disable or configure the firewall, such as Norton, by adding the server IP to the 'trusted' list. If you are able to connect when the firewall is disabled, set an exception for all traffic to the VPN server IP address. If not sure how to do that, contact us and let us know what program you are using.
  6. If connecting via a router, you should have PPTP Pass-through and ipsec pass-through enabled. By default, it is in most cases.
  7. Go to http://www.whatismyip.com/ and verify the VPN IP address is correct. This way we know for sure that you are connected through the VPN.
  8. If it was working before and not anymore, delete the VPN Connection from your computer and recreate it.
  9. If still having issues, it might be wise to try the connection at a different location or on a friends computer at another location. Do not save account username and password on your friends computer.

This is most likely a DNS related issue, please follow the instructions below to resolve the issue:

  1. Right click on your VPN connection, and select 'Properties'.
  2. On the resulting dialog, select the TCP/IP protocol to highlight it, then click the 'Properties' button.
  3. Once the dialog opens up, in the bottom section, select the radio button 'use the following DNS server addresses' and enter the server DNS IP: 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222
  4. Save and exit the networking dialogs and test the connection.

If the issue persists, please repeat the steps and assign the DNS IP to your internet connection adapter ( Wifi or ethernet adapter). Be sure to write down the current server addresses or settings on a piece of paper before changing.

You may need to reset the TCP IP Stack on the Windows machine! Some more info

 

If you receive an 'Error 619', please try the following:

Click Start, then run.

Type 'cmd' and press enter

A black box should open up (Command Prompt), at this point type in and press enter: netsh int ip reset reset.txt

To fix this error try the following:

 

- Restart the modem or router
- Delete the VPN connection and re-create it. It may be corrupt.
- Temporarily disable the firewall
- Restart the computer.

 

For more information please visit : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/892889

If you are getting error 691 it is most probably due to one of the following:

The username and/or password are incorrect.

Another computer is already connected with the same account. Your router supports only one VPN connection.

The account may have expired and is now disabled.

 

Therefore, make sure that you enter your username and password exactly as displayed in the welcome e-mail. Please note that during copy-paste a 'Space' may be copyed with the login details. If you're certain that no other computer is connected, wait a few minutes and then try to connect again. Also, please make sure the 'Include Windows logon domain' check box is unchecked in the Options tab of the VPN connection's Properties dialog box.

Error 721 is a PPTP VPN error (The type of setup that you have configured).

This issue can occur if the network firewall does not permit GRE traffic (IP protocol 47). PPTP uses GRE for tunneled data.
To solve this issue configure the network firewall between the VPN client and the server to permit GRE.

In addition, make sure that the network firewall permits TCP traffic on port 1723. Both of these conditions must be met to establish VPN connectivity by using PPTP.

 

Additional Tips:

Disable you firewall application / security program on the computer and test the VPN.

If using a wireless connection, try using cable.

Reboot the router/modem wait for internet to resume and test the VPN connection.

 

If you are still unable to make it work, Switch to L2TP IPsec VPN

The first thing that should be done is reboot and test the VPN. If you still get error 789 then you can try the following:

Your operating system is not correctly configured to connect to an L2TP server. The connection attempt is failing before a connection to the server is ever attempted. This error is caused entirely by a misconfiguration of the user's operating system.

Location, or connect type has no bearing on receiving this error message.

 

Click on the Start > Run > Type services.msc and press enter Find: -- Locate both: 'IKE and AuthIP IPsec Keying Modules' and 'IPsec Policy Agent'.
In the 'status' column it should state 'started' Right click the service and click restart. If it is not 'started' Right click to start it. Right click and click properties. For 'startup type' choose 'automatic' and save. Reboot and test the VPN connection.

We recommend that you adjust the MTU setting to 1372.
