VPN

I only have the free version, but the VPN keeps cutting out. I have to keep an eye on it - which is kind of ironic...

The VPN is a Subscription based service. You shouldn't have access to it at all.

Yup. Since checking the "Auto Proxy Discovery" box in System Preferences>Network>Advanced>Proxies, I've noticed that although the VPN still blinks out,
it immediately resets itself. So I'm satisfied now, but waiting on a credit card to arrive before I can upgrade.   ;)

The best way to find out is to try it.
