thoughts on VPNTunnel?
There's a lot of Pros to their service, but I was looking at the detailed explanation on TOPS and it mentions the "\# of Persistent Cookies" is "40" which seems like a lot (the second highest on the list), but I also have no idea what that actually means. Also, they're tied for the highest "\# of External Trackers" and that sounds ominous.
VPNTunnel has this feature on its Windows client. I don't know which software you use but there must be a way to do it.
I did set utorrent for the same purpose than you, but without testing if the feature works. So now I've done the test and it does work.
Hello, I'm looking into VPN's for use at home. Primary use is for file sharing. I am new to this and basically, I'm wondering if this will prevent my ISP from knowing what I'm downloading. The one I have in mind is VPNTunnel. Would this fit my needs? Would another one be better? I would like faster download speeds if possible.
NordVPN: Never worked for me. Support couldn't resolve issue. Do not recommend
PIA: Based in US. Highly recommend and pretty good in terms of security and privacy. Used it for over a year but, recently service has not been the best.
OVPN: They were ok, Speeds were not the best. Expensive in my opinion.
: Slow speeds and I'm not sure what's special about it.
BlackVPN: Speeds were pretty good for me and they offered quality customer service.
VPNTunnel: Never used them, no comment.
BolehVPN: They provide pretty good speeds. Yearly is pretty expensive most vpn provide a discount for yearly members but Boleh didn't. After nearly a year of using them, I stopped and cancelled because performance deteriorated. Also, their client area and support page was messy and confusing wouldn't recommend for new users.
Now, I'm using Mullvad. Consistent speeds and performance. Reliable and highly recommended in security and privacy.
Exactly. Usually you get an email from AWS that says they are taking it down. But, better safe than sorry I suppose.
Check this out: #VPNTunnels
Typically, you don't have two on premise VPN connections. But the link above describes it pretty well.
Check this out. Their speed is decent too. I use it fairly regularly.
If it's nefarious deeds your wanting to get up to, I would recommend Ipredator, or VPNTunnel. They're based in Sweden, which has fairly liberal privacy laws. They don't have to keep logs or anything, so they don't.
are these ASAs in separate buildings or something? do they not share the same Internet circuit?
>I thought I could create a vlan, make it a /29, give one IP to the vlan, one IP to each ASA, one for network, one for broadcast, and then trunk that vlan over the network.
the failover network only exists between the two ASAs and cannot be routed.
>I have been told to use a 169.254 address instead. wtf? How?
the 169.254.0.0/16 is reserved for private use. it is most often used for APIPA
Ok so I kinda said this already in the post, I do not have money for the premium plan. But I asked around and while yes, the VPNTunnel free works (except the down and up speeds have cut in half, and ping is really high), my friends at dc told me that it would most likely not be able to work. I would need something more premium and higher quality to work.
I live in the US, have Xfinity internet and I want a fast VPN that keeps me as anonymous as possible if I, for instance, wished to get involved in torrenting. I know Comcast has throttled VPNs in the past. I've been looking on That One Privacy Site, and I filtered out all VPNs that are under Fourteen Eyes jurisdiction (since I figured that's what I need to avoid to be safe) and then sorted by highest US speed, it seems that SaferVPN and VPNTunnel are the two top choices, but I don't know if Comcast throttles those VPNs, and no obfuscation data is provided for either VPN. So I'm at a bit of a loss. Any recommendations?
EDIT: Yes, I'm willing to pay. I recognize that nothing is truly free and VPNs are no exception.
You are using it now? How's the service like? My work demands that the VPN must be able to connect to several devices simultaneously and offer different ip to each of the devices. VPNTunnel can do that?
Where are you located and how much are you willing to pay? Mullvad is a good all-rounder, but it's speeds aren't the best on servers outside the US. If you want affordability and good speeds globally, VPNTunnel is a good choice, but isn't too good in other areas, such as encryption, privacy, ease of use.
I am a US based user that's looking for a good recommendation for very basic stuff: just trying to hide Kodi from my ISP, that's it. Prefer an option that works on both Android and Windows that's relatively inexpensive. I found one that seemed perfect for me (VPNTunnel), but their Android app hadn't been updated since 2015 and one review elsewhere said it was impossible to cancel and they just had to stop PayPal payments as they wouldn't respond to requests to close the account. I am fine with paying $50 USD/year as long as the speed is good enough for streaming.
Hey, also concerned with republican bill that just passed.
I just got VPNTunnel but I keep getting mixed reviews on it. Does any ol' vpn keep my ISP/phone provider from seeing my traffic?
Why should I worry about encryption level?
EDIT: I read that phone companies might be able to install hidden apps. Will a VPN protect against this?
I currently use VPNTunnel with openvpn.
It was working fine until recently, which is why i thought maybe some update changed the system and i'd need to adjust the scripts, the tutorial is getting a bit old.
> it's not really giving me confidence in using their services.
Would you mind expanding on that? I am currently using VPNTunnel, which appears to be related to Edelino Commerce. If there is something wrong with them, I would like to know. I have taken a look at the website that you linked, but I do not see anything wrong with it.
Thanks for the reply, it's really shitty when people provide false information (PeerBlock would be another one that often gets misunderstood) so it's good you cleared that up.
AirVPN sounds really reasonable, I may consider getting an account, I used VPNTunnel before but I dropped it although it worked quite well.
>I understand that Usenets encrypt all the stuff you download
Uhhh? Are we talking about different things?
>P.S. bonus karma points for VPN/Usenet recommendations; I am currently between BTGuard (VPN not proxy) and ; and Giganews and Astraweb.
Holy shit they're still going? I think I paid Giganews $13 for a year like 10 years ago back when usenet was still used for discussion.
This is very true, by not monitoring 'user activity', i.e. not peeping at what sites/services you're accessing to while connected to the VPN server the provider is completely within their right to say they "do not keep any logs"
This is very misleading and lots of people often tell me that the company they use waaaay better because they don't log. I'll praise a company for deleting timestamps and connection locations (IP addresses) within the week.
The reality is companies can keep this information for up to 2 years if they want and still get a way with advertising a no logging policy. I was recommended by another user on /r/VPN
If you want the complete no logging experience get a company that uses Swedish servers and doesn't retain any information on it. As far as I know Sweden is the only country that actively encourages a no logging policy for their ISP's and VPN's
I use VPNTunnel. There is no noticeable difference in speed compared to when I turn it off. Sometimes I have the impression that they slow down the porn tubes, but that's it.
