    UK VPN provider that works with the Playbook?

    Has anyone found a UK VPN provider that can be configured with the Playbook? Neither UKproxyserver.co.uk nor Foxyproxy are compatible unfortunately.

    If your looking for a free solution there are not that many that are worth it. You can take a look at https://www.vpnreactor.com/ from what it looks like they have a pretty decent service. They even have a PlayBook tutorial, and a server located in the UK. Hope this helps.

    Thanks ICE. Free is not necessary. I am prepared to pay for a reliable, fast service.

    I took a 3 day trial plan. I have it set up on the PB and PC. Setting up the PC was a doddle, the PB not so easy. The video tutorial was almost incomprehensible but the detailed instructions below the video were long but comprehensive and I got it working OK. At first I couldn't stream BBC iPlayer but I noticed that the written instructions told me to enter the sstp server but, of course, the UK server was required. Once changed it all worked OK. I'll report again when I've used it more. Thanks for the pointer ICE.

    Hmmm. Problems. As I said yesterday I connected OK first time. However when I restarted the PB this morning the VPN profile was gone! I re-entered the parameters and checked and re-checked them against the instructions. When I clicked save/connect the spinning green circle just sits there for hours. No connection. My PC is connected and is working.

    Copying and pasting this to VPNreactor support now.

    Hello rafiki, check out Managing VPN Profiles - User Guide - BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet - 2.0

    As ice2921 mentioned above, that VPNReactor PlayBook Tutorial looks pretty good, maybe re-checking your settings, and saving them again.

    Thank you.
