So I attach a laptop at work to Xfinity's hotspots (mainly to browse outside of my job's network) and use the TorGuard client to further protect what I'm doing. The signal from the hotspot is really strong and whenever I don't use TG's VPN, it's remains solid throughout the day. If I connect to a VPN, it'll generally disconnect after 10-15 minutes, sometimes quicker, sometimes longer. I know it's doing it since I have app kill enabled for the browser, just in case. I read in Xfinity's forums that they block VPN's on the public wifi's (I don't seem to have the same problem at home - at least not as much). Are there specific settings that I should be using to get around these constant disconnects? I read that setting TorGuard to TCP:80 will do the trick and I'm trying it, but thought I would reach out to see if anyone else is having problems or has specific answers. Thanks!
