OPERA Developer Version 39.0.2234.0 VPN ISSUES

  • same here.

    vpn is trying to connect (orange), but nothing happens. And there is no server to choose. (win10)

    On the other system (Win7) it works fine.

  • Here too

    a print for this

  • I've just checked and VPN is working here. I'm using 39.0.2234.0 on Windows 10 build 14342 if that matters.

    To try to help figuring out what may be happening, I think people could answer a few questions:

    What OS are you using?
    From where are you accessing?
    Do you use any firewall, anti-virus, anti-malware or similar software?
    Do you use a proxy to access the internet?

  • 39.0.2234.0 on Windows 10 build 14342, from the UK. No proxy or third-party firewall or anti-virus software. VPN not working here.

  • VPN is no longer working, too; stop working after last update yesterday

    Version: 39.0.2234.0 - Opera is up to date

    System: Ubuntu 14.04.4 LTS (x86_64; MATE)

    from Russia

    No proxy or third-party firewall or anti-virus software

  • OK, nothing in common among those with VPN issues as it seems.

    Have you tried with a standalone installation?

  • Standalone here (Win10). It's been dead all day (didn't try yesterday). For a friend, too.

  • What about extensions? Do you use any?

  • @pdn216, I have had this issue as well and after a week it started hanging then stating that the websites I'm trying to reach cannot be found or that it has moved. However, I have installed a VM running Windows 10 and it seems to be working fine, even though the Opera Developer v.39.0.2234.0 on my regular desktop isn't. I'm wondering if the VM is bypassing a blocker that my ISP is preventing me from using Opera's VPN feature? I'm not entirely sure if it is actually my ISP blocking but they are able to do that.

  • Same here again.
    Win 7 64bit Home Edition. Latest Opera dev. version. No extensions.
    Writing from Poland.
    VPN mark gets blue after opening new private window, then it goes orange when i try to open any site (site cannot be found).

  • i also have the same problem what happend to the vpn servers?

  • @leocg Are previous releases of Opera Developer available? We could rollback to the previous version to check if that's still working correctly. That would rule out any possible ISP blocking. I doubt that's the problem, but perhaps worth confirming.

  • I'm an expat living in Beijing, China.
    The VPN worked well here for the first few days. Then became unreliable (forever to connect), then the forced access through a private browsing window was annoying (all auto logins/cookies are rendered useless), now it doesn't work at all.
    I did wonder if the Chinese investment/potential investment in Opera may be the reason.

  • I did a clean install of Opera Developer:

    UK
    Version: 39.0.2234.0 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: developer
    System: Windows 10 64-bit (WoW64) Pro 1511

    Disabled the firewall (for testing purposes), No proxy, not a single extension.

    VPN still not working. And it was working perfectly fine in this exact same environment just before the update to 39.0.2234.0.

    When I open the private VPN window it always shows Disabled and when I click to enable it connects to Canada as before it was showing connected to Germany. When the issue started a couple of seconds after clicking on a page it was showing an error. Now it will never resolve and form time to time bottom left shows "Sending request to bla-bla-bla".

  • I've just reinstalled the previous release of Opera Developer from https://get.geo.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera-developer/39.0.2226.0/win/ (64bit version), and can confirm that the VPN works perfectly in Private Browsing on my system (Windows 10). Latest release doesn't. Nothing has changed on my system, so it's clearly something related to this release. Think I'll stick with 39.0.2226.0 for now 😃

  • yep, previous version works like a charm, VPN wise :drunk:

  • ver. 2226 goes smoothly 🙂
    Thank you for your time checking this rstacey.

  • yes, in previous version (2226) VPN works fine

  • Nice to see that Opera is on top of the situation. Ahem.

    OK, so with that older version, how do we disable automatic upgrades? For some reason, I don't see that option in Settings.
