iPlayer won't work with SurfingStreamingUK any more. Anyone have a workaround, please?

Hi mate,

Update your configurations from the Settings tab of the BolehVPN client and connect to the BolehGEO Europe server!

Hi Chris

Thanks for the advice but it doesn't work. I've updated several times but just get the dreaded "Unknown error, check log" message. I've attached the log.
Viewing BBC when I'm travelling is the main reason I subscribe. Any other ideas, please?
PS. I'm currently trying to connect from Singapore.

Hi there,

This is an OpenVPN connection problem.

The routing table needs to be flushed on the interface used to connect to the Internet. The easiest way is to flush the routes is to reboot your system.

Alternatively, if you're okay with using the terminal just follow these steps:

Step 1. Open a Terminal window. (Found in Applications, Utilities.)

Step 2. Enter the following commands:
sudo ifconfig en1 down
sudo route flush
sudo ifconfig en1 up

Important: Please make sure to replace en1 with your actual Internet interface. By default you have:
en0: ethernet (wired) interface
en1: wlan (wireless) interface

If you don't know which interface is your Internet interface you can use the following command in the Terminal: sudo ifconfig
