Not connecting - hanging on "connecting..." after "logging onto cryptostorm..."

Post by obey201 » Tue Mar 23, 2021 2:55 am

Windows10
Widget 3.45
Build 3.45.0.43
OpenVPN 2.5.1
OpenSSL 1.1.1j

I can't log into Cryptostorm.
I have updated all systems and tested multiple options within the widget and can't get it to progress past "connecting...", it just gets there and hangs. I can still exit so it's not frozen, but it won't connect. I've tried multiple nodes as well as global random, nothing seems to work.
Would appreciate some help getting logged on, thanks.

Can you run "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cryptostorm Client\bin\csvpn.exe" ? If it disappears too quickly, you could try running it from a command prompt, just copy paste "C:\Program Files (x86)\Cryptostorm Client\bin\csvpn.exe" into the window (double quotes included) and press enter.

Only reason I can think of for it to get stuck at "logging onto cryptostorm" is if it can't run csvpn.exe (OpenVPN).
