SSL Client stuck in "Connecting" phase

Whenever i launch my client, the software goes straight to "connecting" without prompting me to enter any details. No matter what i try to kill the connection the client continuously launches in that state meaning i can not enter any details to sign in.

(Image is of what happens when i click connect to enter details but am taken straight to the connecting phase)

  • Hello Rayn,

    maybe something is blocking the tcp port you are using for VPN?

    Anti-Virus?
