I'm located in China, Guangzhou and cannot connect for some reason.
I usually use IPSec, it works very well for me.
Please see the Log below, it says that I should report this problem to this mail.

I have already downloaded and re-installed the newest version of my VPN,
but it still doesn't work.

Hi Kai,

(Cc'ing you as I'm not sure you're signed up to the list.)

It looks like you're using WiTopia, which evidently uses some Cygwin applications under the covers. Your best bet is to contact WiTopia for support here; the people on this list will likely know nothing about how WiTopia uses Cygwin, so there is very little we can do.

If you do want to get support here, please take a look at the problem reporting guidelines at In particular, we need the `cygcheck -s -r -v` output, which tells us about your system configuration. If WiTopia haven't provided access to that utility, there is incredibly little we can do, so you will have to return to WiTopia for help.

It is probably also worth noting that, while WiTopia is a paid-for service, Cygwin is free, and the people on this mailing list are (with very few exceptions) volunteers. If you want paid-for support, as opposed to whatever the volunteers here decide to volunteer to look at, you should go hassle the people you're paying :)
