I am located in China and just installed proxPN on my MacBook. But it does not connect to the server in Dallas, it always hangs there. What can I do? Thanks!

Many people in China experience the open vpn protocol being blocked. The only way around this would be to use the PPTP protocol which is available with a premium account.

I concur. I use ProXPN in China and this is the only way to connect... using PPTP. – Shane Jan 11 '13 at 8:17
