I live in NYC. when i try to access a NYC newspaper website, i get message it is currently not available to foreign visitors. Does this mean Kapersky is using a foreign server for me?\

  • Image 2, use the 3. Search field to find any location, server

@LSchnapf Please also check if Kasperky VPN is running at  Windows  startup:

when i try to access Crain’s website, I get the following message: 

 

The owner of this website (www.crainsnewyork.com) has banned your IP address (92.38.148.36)

 

what is this about? I tried to open my VPN icon to try to change location of server but it is not responding.

Hello @LSchnapf

Welcome back!

  1. Sometimes web administrators block ips - especially known vpn hosts.  
  2. Have you tried all 5 USA servers? 
  3. IF you're unable to open KVPN, on the Windows taskbar or hidden icons, rightclick the KVPN icon, select Exit, then restart the KVPN

Please let us know the outcome?

@LSchnapf Some servers are able  to detect and block VPN connections.
