When I'm in the office with my Windows 10 laptop (with Fences latest version), I can boot, login & be working in about a minute.
When I work from home, the system boots & I login but then the system seems to hang for around 10 minutes before I can do anything!
If I disable fences and reboot, I'm up logged in & working within a minute.
If I then enable Fences & reboot....We're back to the 10 minute wait again.
When I work from home, after logging in I usually manually start a VPN. However, this is difficult with the system hung. Even if I auto start the VPN, the system won't accept keyboard input, so I can't login to it.
I suspect that Fences is trying to access the internet using the proxy settings in IE. However, these proxy setting are only valid when I'm in the office or connected via VPN! And I can't connect the VPN because Fences is blocking everything!
It would be nice if the dev team at Stardock are listening & could fix this, even if only to bring the timeout down from 10 minutes to something more sensible.
