So without having looked at the source code, am I right this thing pings servers for a certain time and determines the one with the best average time and packet loss rate? While an interesting idea, latency on its own is not always the best indicator for if a server is the "best". But, well..

 

What's your full command line?

the command is pretty straight forward:

 

netselect -vv gemma.airservers.org homam.airservers.org kleeia.airservers.org mimosa.airservers.org

 

This is an attempt to find the "best" server in Vancouver. I find no difference when using IP instead of hostname. Both timeout. Yet with a list of other servers, netselect works.

 

My understanding of netselect, is it does more than just ping. I believe it also does a traceroute. Debian has adapted a version (netselect-apt) to choose their "best" mirror.

Apparently not, since most people use the AirVPN client which does test the servers in its own way. Those who choose not to use it usually use OpenVPN with one IP or let OpenVPN choose randomly via remote-random.

 

Maybe I'll look into this myself if I find some time.
