Fixing VPN on Globe Tattoo Broadband Connectivity Issues

Recently, the 11-11-11 update from GLOBE made a change on how we can use VPN services. See this link: Latest VPN Settings for GLOBE 

Then, not just that, there are consequently other problems that is experienced by GLOBE Tattoo Broadband Modem users, such as me. The VPN connects but it won’t browse, also sometimes the VPN doesnt connects at all.

Its a good thing that there are lots of good netizens that shared their workarounds. So I’m here to share it.

  1. Launch Smart Bro Dashboard, minimize and do not close.
  2. Go to Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Change Adapter settings > Locate the ZTE modem connection. Create a copy of this connection. The reason we are copying this is that there are some instances that the device disappears when the SMART BRO Dashboard is closed.
  3. Select the newly copied ZTE modem adapter > select & right click and go to Properties > Networking TCP/IP V4 > Advanced > WINS > Disable Netbios over TCP/IP.
  4. Create a shortcut of the connection and save it to your desktop.
  5. In order to connect. Simply connect your USB stick and launch the smartbro dashboard.
  6. Minimize the Dashboard and locate your newly created connection on the desktop.
  7. Right click and connect. It will show no notifications so wait a few seconds.
  8. Launch the OpenVPN client and connect.

TLS Error when connecting


  • TLS errors are often network related, please check your network stability. Your signal may not be that stable.
  • Check for firewalls that may be blocking the connection. There are instances that ESET may be blocking your connection so please check.
  • Check your APN settings as it may not be correct.

opcode Errors upon connecting

Fix: Edit the config files.

  1. Launch OpenVPN. Do not connect to any server. Select a server and select edit config.
  2. Add the the following lines at the bottom:

    dhcp-option DISABLE-NBT
    dhcp-option DISABLE-NBT

  3. SAVE. Then now connect.

That’s it!

I also have experienced this problem, and now, I do not have any problem connecting to any VPN’s anymore. :D



The reason why I had asked on facebook, what AV my fans are using, is because of the ESET network filtering, which I also had experienced. If you are using ESET, click on the icon in your system tray and then click on Enable Network Traffic. This will disable network filtering, and so allowing you to browse the internet using VPN.

Well, that’s it! Hope to solve everyone’s problem, especially those Globe users. If you still happen to get unconnected by all means, you should try using another SIM card, that also works for me. ^_^
