New 200 Mbit/s server available (KR)

Recommended Posts

UPDATE 24-JUL-15: SERVER WILL BE WITHDRAWN

 

Hello!

We're very glad to inform you that a new 200 Mbit/s server located in the Republic of Korea (South Korea) is available:  Dsiban.

 

The AirVPN client will show automatically the new server, while if you use the OpenVPN client you can generate all the files to access them through our configuration/certificates/key generator (menu "Client Area"->"Config generator").

The server accepts connections on ports 53, 80, 443, 2018 UDP and TCP.

Just like every other Air server, Dsiban supports OpenVPN over SSL and OpenVPN over SSH.

As usual no traffic limits, no logs, no discrimination on protocols and hardened security against various attacks with separate entry and exit-IP addresses.

 

Do not hesitate to contact us for any information or issue.

Kind regards and datalove
AirVPN Team

South Korea is known to block various types of content.

 

Is this server included in nationwide bans?

 

Yes. We had an agreement for a network neutral datacenter but clearly it's not the case. Staff members will have a meeting very soon to decide what to do.

 

Kind regards

Yea, I can confirm everyone's "favorite" sites are blocked.  Could you possibly re-route some traffic through your other servers?

 

I live in Japan so the ping is great and I tested an upload to my work server and it was just as fast as California, but with these blocks, I cannot use the KR server.  Other users may concur.

If they are doing site blocking it's best to cut them off. It can only lead to user complaints and bad PR, plus it goes against everything Air stands for. I assumed you had found a datacenter that circumvented the South Korean blocking, but if that's not possible it's best to let them go. Especially considering the possible slippery slope ramifications. I have faith Air will come up with a good solution, though

What kind of sites? Torrent, Porn, North Korea media...

It does not matter what they block. AirVPN stands for network neutrality and a free internet. This does not go well with censorship like the Korean government is apparently applying. So even though I'm not directly concerned I would definitely vote for terminating the contract with the corresponding data center.

Very interesting situation.  It certainly speaks to the differences in culture.  I'm sure Air was told whatever they wanted to hear leading up to this.

Will the Hadar Hong Kong server be back up ? It disappeared a few days ago with "high packet loss".

From Australia, it gave the best ping times during business hours, okay for access to websites back in Australia, and the colocation in pacswitch on big pipes to China/USA/Japan/Korea/SEAsia seemed good for general global access. I have not really probed, but don't think HK has a tight blacklist regime etc, usually more after commercial gain, but perhaps pressure from China.

I don't recommend a server in Australia - secret blacklist, and metadata retention laws, on ISP Internet access providers, court orders to disclose user id details, and a coming law to force carriers to obey security directives from the "secret police" which could include monitoring taps/backdoors etc. There is speculation there will be restrictions on use of VPNs if/when they figure out a scheme.

While the speed and latency were really good with the KR server, kudos to AirVPN for making the right decision to not compromise their non-censorship principles. Hopefully, AirVPN would be able to find more Asian servers in future.

I was waiting for this one to get withdrawn after I heard the first complaints about it.
Censorship is not cool.

Hope Airvpn could find one reliable server in KR or JP in the near future.
