Updated Opera and VPN still doesn't work

  • Guys MAYBE I spoke too soon. I'm begining to have a lot of problem on sites. When I go from thread to thread somewhere Opera throws up ERR_TUNNEL_CONNECTION_FAILED - I have to refresh - it then thinks about it for upto a couple of minutes and either gives the same error msg or connects..

  • @unionjack
    Still working fine here Jack and I've had it running for over an hour without a hiccup.
    I realize that this doesn't help you out but just offering feedback 😞
    Not sure if me being located in Australia has any bearing on this though.

  • @gokuluffy ... Agree. This is really getting annoying.

  • @browzer1 yep not working, tried everything 🙁

  • I saw a topic about vpn problem yesterday, but now it's gone. Is it already solved? Because I still can't connect my vpn.

  • @unionjack Same here, after 2 days it looks to be working again with the latest version 60.0.3255.59 installed on my Mac. Thanks Forum 🙂

  • I checked my update and it says I'm updated, it's version 60.0.3255.57 opera beta. But they said the working one is 59 version, so I clicked the link and install but it didn't update my opera intead it install a new one, and adding insult to injury the vpn still doesn't work. Is there any way to update my 57 opera beta instead of installing a new one?

  • (1) VPN quit working about 24 hours ago, weeks after the first autoupdate to the "new look" version 60, after a subsequent autoupdate. For a while, VPN simply wouldn't work at all; I couldn't even turn it on. Over time it changed to where I can turn it on and it gives the impression that VPN is working, but if I try to connect to any website, nothing happens for 15-20 seconds and then the VPN connection "disappears" again. if I re-enable VPN and try again, the same behavior results. Is this because VPN is broken for everyone? Or is it just for me?

    (2) Can I fix this by reverting to Opera version 58?

    (3) At some point in my wandering around trying to understand what's going on, I came upon a window that offered three different locations for where I would appear to be; Europe, Asia, or America. Now that window seems to have disappeared! Can anyone please tell me how to find it again?

    I'm running 64-bit Windows 7. Thanks very much.....

  • @unionjack Same, with at least one site. I have to turn mine off to even browse properly.

    Also as an update to my previous statements, the newest download in the link provided didn't solve the problem for me. I'm fully updated, currently.

  • @jtouser Same here mate, Obviously still not totally fixed. Keeps gettibng this TUNNEL CONNECTION FAILED, Then hust sits no matter how many times I refresh.

  • I tried Americas, Europe and Asia - none of them work. From Western Australia.

    Is it me or is this a general situation?

  • Hi,
    My opera VPN is having multiple issues of slowness and interruptions which I'm facing from the last 2 days. I have updated to the lastest update. But,the issue still persists.VPN gets disconnected often.

  • I've just updated to 60.0.3255.59 (Linux Mint 19.1) and VPN is working again.

  • If VPN is enabled it can not open any sites, it is saying that - vpn is temporary unavailable. Is it true? or its just my systems problem?

  • @celeritasworld can't connect either but fortunately opera keeps the user informed of any issues.

  • Just now, try to update to version 60.0.3255.59 the VPN service is back.

  • @leocg I've downloaded the versions listed, NONE of them work or resolve the VPN is connecting issue, so if you can direct me to this miracle solution I would be very grateful.

  • I have been having the same problem, happening on multiple devices on different ISPs. I am in the UK and I wondered if Opera's VPN is being blocked?

  • I have the same problem.

  • I have the newest version for windows still not working
