Hi- this isn't so much a problem as a change I've noticed since upgrading my OS to run OpenVPN Last year was running 2 main devices. Laptop on Ubuntu 9.04 and a tablet on Ice Cream Sandwich. OpenVPN wouldn't run on Ubuntu 9.04 on laptop, had to configure seperately via Network Manager. Worked a treat on laptop, except whenever my connection was disrupted and AirVPN automatically reconnected but to a different server, Facebook and Gmail would go into spasms, lock me out and I'd need to reanswer security questions. It was painful, but I felt safe I could run OpenVPN on my Android tablet, and I don't recall having this reconnection security issue at either site ( but didn't use the tablet much ) I upgraded to Mint last year, was able to install OpenVPN and run my AirVPN acct through it. But I did notice that since then, neither FB or Gmail has had security issues with this when connection drops and is re-established via a different server A colleague suggested that perhaps in the interim AirVPN may have updated it's routing so that reconnects don't cause Facebook/ Gmail to warn about session hijacks, and I should check that first Is this the case? Or is OpenVPN somehow signalling that a VPN is being used with some sites such as Facebook? TIA
