I live at Boarding School, have been here for 1 year now. The school forces all of its inhabitants to use its heavily censored, seriously retarded, and overall nyerksome internet proxy system.
Now, as I said, I have been here from 1 year, and in my previous year I was able to avoid completely this firewall by using the magical, life-saving proxy tunneler client; Your Freedom.
I have used Your Freedom mainly for online gaming, Aion to be specific. In the previous year I have succeeded in gaining perfect access to Aion and all of its features through the use of Your Freedom as well as OpenVPN.
To be quite frank, i'm a newb when it comes to all this confusing stuff concerning interweb terms and definitions so I cannot fully explain what, exactly, each of these programs do, but I will try.
Your Freedom is a proxy tunneling client which allows my computer to pass through my school's proxy server and access a remote proxy server.
So, put into perspective...
My Computer ----> Your Freedom ------> School Proxy -------> Your Freedom Proxy Server -----> Aion Game Server
and then back to My Computer
When configuring Your Freedom, I configure it to use my school internet account, which I need to use to access the internet. The Your Freedom Client naturally supports authentication, and previously, with the old school proxy server this has worked without any problems.
The school, though, now has a NEW proxy server, and this is where my problem lies...
YOUR FREEDOM CANNOT AUTHENTICATE ITSELF ON THE NEW SCHOOL PROXY
It's absolutely murdering me, tearing me apart from the inside out. Why can't it recognise the authentication? My details aren't wrong, my details haven't changed. I can still access the school proxy's internet using IE with those very same authentication details.
It just seems that when the Your Freedom Client tries to authenticate it is not recognised.
Is it a problem with Your Freedom? Does its authentication type or whatever not match the one accepted by the school proxy? How do I fix this?
