What is VyprVPN?
VPN stands for "Virtual Private Network". A VPN connection creates an encrypted tunnel between your device and our VPN servers. When a VyprVPN connection is made, all of your Internet traffic is forwarded from your device to the VyprVPN servers using 128-bit, 160-bit or 256-bit SSL encryption. As a result, your Internet traffic is secure. This protects your online data from hackers. It also prevents network providers between you and the VyprVPN server from engaging in traffic shaping.

Why doesn't my IP address change when connected to VyprVPN on Mac OS X?
Operating Systems Affected: Mac OS X
This issue is caused by a setting in the VPN configuration.
To resolve this issue:
- Click on the Apple Menu
- Click System Preferences
- Click Network
- Click on the VPN connection
- Click Advanced
- Check the box in Send All Traffic
This will route all traffic through the VyprVPN connection.
Why doesn't email work when connected with VyprVPN?
Some Internet Service Providers restrict access to their email server only to their IP address range. When connected with VyprVPN, you appear to have a VyprVPN IP address.
To resolve this issue, contact your ISP and ask them how to check your email from a remote location. You may also review their FAQ to see if there are instructions on how to setup email to work from a remote location.
Why am I getting inbound connections and scans when accessing VyprVPN?
When you connect to VyprVPN, you get a dedicated tunnel to the Internet, bypassing your router's protections from inbound connections. In our efforts to allow true unrestricted access to the Internet, we are not blocking any inbound connections. We encourage all of our customers to run their operating system firewalls and virus scanning software.
We also offer NAT Firewall to prevent these inbound connections. NAT Firewall is included for all Diamond Memberships.
