I was able to access my VPN on Monday (which I have successfully done for 6 years until the end of last week and the week) and it happened after my bonus time expired and when my data kicked it. I have been unsuccessful on remote access via my VPN on Tuesday or Wednesday. Everything was fine last week until either Thursday or Friday.
I will try to get tests 5 mins apart, I was working on a deadline today so my ability to pull away from what I'm supposed to be doing was scarce. I assumed when you said throughout the day, you meant every now and again.
