Perform latency tests only for whitelisted servers

Recommended Posts

I only use UK servers, all 16 of which I have added to the whitelist. However, there are around ~200 AirVPN servers in total, and when I start the AirVPN client the latency tests run for every single one of them.


I often end up waiting longer for the latency tests to complete than I do connecting to the server itself, which is silly since I only need the tests to run on 16 out of the ~200.


Can we please have a setting that allows us to restrict the latency test to the whitelist or another set of servers?


So much effort is put into reducing OS startup time and this seems to throw a lot of that effort out the window.

This needs to happen ASAP.


I am baffled that it isn't already. AirVPN's client is a mature piece of software, yet this is the first thing I noticed about it and it irritates me every time. I can't be the only one to have suggested it.

No problems here. If it so happens that I need the client, latency is shown for all servers immediately after launch.

If it's not shown right away for you check your environment first. Configs, firewalls, routers, cables and the like.

Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.
