    I have a VPS Server hosting Windows Server 7. I installed HMA VPN for IP rotation to avoid my VPS server blacklisted or banned


    When I connect to openVPN it automatically disconnects Remote Desktop and I'm unable to reach the VPS again until I reboot it.


    Any advise on what to do to enable openVPN to run on the Windows VPS server, without disconnecting me and also need to reboot

    Depending on your version. Version: OpenVPN Version 2.3.1-1 should have this fixed already so maybe update it if its not working.

    Remove this code from this file : http://sourceforge.net/p/openvpn-gui/code/ci/47cff8747762cdecaced5045daf6855c654ad7a0/


    Code:
    Removing the following block fixes the issue:
    +
    +    case WM_WTSSESSION_CHANGE:
    +      switch (wParam) {
    +        case WTS_SESSION_LOCK:
    +          o.session_locked = TRUE;
    +          break;
    +        case WTS_SESSION_UNLOCK:
    +          o.session_locked = FALSE;
    +          if (CountConnState?(suspended) != 0)
    +            ResumeConnections?();
    +          break;
    +      }
    Another issue is it could be how your router is handling the connections. Try a different router if it's still not working

    Yes, i am referring to the HMA VPN software. Basically, one can connect through openvpn on the apps (if you want numerous ip addresses on rotation) or via PPTP(Which offer just one ip at a goal).

    Are you saying you are running HMA app on your Windows server or Home PC?

    Why are you using a VPN for your VPS? The only thing you should use your VPS' IP for is connecting to it. If you're trying to run SEO tools on your VPS you want to use proxies. Proxies allow you to pass your out going traffic through them so that it looks like the traffic is coming from them, and not you. As to your issue about being disconnected you could always install TeamViewer or Logmein on the VPS so that if you loose RDP access you can still get a remote connection without having to restart.

    You can use both, but it wouldn't make any sense because you'd be masking your IP twice when you only need to do it once (unless you're really trying to hide). The issue here is that a VPN is a Virtual Private Network, which means that for all intents and purposes your computer is apart of whatever network you're connecting to. The reason he is loosing RDP connection is because when he connects to the VPN his computer's IP is essentially changing to the IP of the outside interface of the VPN server. If someone sends a letter to your address, but you change your address before the letter arrives you will never get it because the post office doesn't know your address anymore as it has changed. With a VPN you're sending all TCP and UDP traffic to the VPN server, with a Proxy you can send only HTTP traffic to the proxy server, and only for the applications that you setup to use said proxy.

    Thanks guys for all your advise.
    what i mostly need is to rotate ip automatically every 5mins or XXmins on my Windows VPS server, If you think i can use proxy+an application to spin ips/rotate (proxy ips), please explain in details for me and if HMA VPN works for you on your Windows VPS server for ip rotation, kindly tell me how to set this up... really need this

    If your not too technical, you could always run a virtual machine inside your server. run hma on the VM and keep RDP to the server intact.
    hope this helps
