Connect to Ace VPN. Visit acevpn.com in your browser to check your public IP address. If the IP has changed your Acevpn connection is active.

Note: This would use only 1 vpn server instead of all the servers we offer. In case the gateway you added goes down or is inaccessible you will have to manually switch to a different gateway. Also its preferred to create a separate profile for each server.
