Express VPN blocked ?

I have used Express VPN as my VPN for years now and until yesterday no problems now I can not connect. I also can not connect on their website but I can on my phone - EE 

Have VM blocked this site and why is that the case ?

Re: Express VPN blocked ?

If you can't get to the site its likely a routeing issue for the IP your on as it loads fine here.

Get tracetcp and you must use tracetcp because they don't allow ICMP

then run this
tracetcp www.expressvpn.com:443

^in cmd

Re: Express VPN blocked ?

If you try in modem mode you likely get another IP and you should be able to connect to the site?

The problem with routing is trace only tells you so much because it looks like Express VPN is blocking you but at the same they might not and in fact its the route back thats the problem but you have no way of knowing. So Email them ask to do a trace from their end to your IP ideally from their same subnet if not the site IP itself to you.

Re: Express VPN blocked ?

I have recently written a post about Express VPN as I have it working through my Sky Hub 2 but cannot get it to work yet through my friend's Superhub 3.

Did you sort it please?

Mike
