Hola VPN Error Connecting to Server on Omegle


I have followed all instructions you have provided on Omegle Error Connecting to Server. However I am still getting the same error with Hola VPN. Why do I keep getting this error? Can you please help me about that?


Firstly you will need to be lucky with connecting to Omegle with VPN services. Why? It is because all IPs on VPN services are shared and while you are connecting to Omegle with those IPs, someone else also connecting to the website with same IP with you. If he/she does something bad on the Omegle and if he/she gets banned from the service, you will be also banned with that IP. Sometimes bans can be reason of Error Connecting to Server problem on Omegle.

The other reason of this, staff can block some VPN and Proxy IPs. If they find out Hola VPN’s IPs, they won’t allow connections from those IPs to reach their server. So you will need to try another IP through Hola VPN or you will need to try another free VPN service. We recommend you to give a try Ultrasurf because it is a bit better than others.
