Private Network instead of Unidentified Network (Win 10)

Hi doffactory,

You need to edit your connection in Viscosity, not Windows, and then follow the instructions in the forum post I linked. There is a more step by step guide for adding a route here - ... connection

Thanks for the help, seems like working.
