Reuben, if I hadn't configured my firewall badly then the problem wouldn't have happened so I admit I was very much at fault. BolehVPN was the first one I tried and to be honest I was pretty clueless when using it and though I had a bad experience this could have happened with any other VPN provider. You were very helpful I recall and I did mention this in my post. I also know that other people on the forum really rate Boleh. The whole experience put me off VPNs for a while. I'm still not sure if I need one.
