When I used a VPN connection I did not have internet connection, when I disconnected the VPN connection I had internet access again. I used the Microsoft Windows 7 Network Diagnostics tool to see what the problem could be.
It responded with the error message: “The configured proxy server is not responding”. Well normally you would go to:
Start > Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings
Uncheck the “Use a proxy server for you LAN (These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections).”
But that this not fix my problem, then I red the checkbox text again:
Use a proxy server for you LAN (These settings will not apply to dial-up or VPN connections).”
I was using a VPN connection, so there had to be another way to set the proxy settings for a VPN connection and there is, go to:
Start > Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > Select you’re VPN connection and click on [Settings]
Uncheck the “Use a proxy server for this connection (These settings will not apply to other connections)”
After unchecking this box I was able to get internet access, when using the VPN connection
Error in the Microsoft Windows 7 Network Diagnostics dialog
Error in Google Chrome
Unable to connect to the proxy server.
A proxy server is a server that acts as an intermediary between your computer and other servers. Right now, your system is configured to use a proxy, but Google Chrome can’t connect to it.
If you use a proxy server, check your proxy settings or check with your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is working.
If you don’t believe you should be using a proxy server, try the following steps:
Go to the Wrench menu > Options > Under the Hood > Change proxy settings > LAN Settings and uncheck "Use a proxy server for your LAN.
