[solved] Find the Best Server; Lowest Ping

Recommended Posts

Go to speedtest.net and find the nearest data server to your location.
Record the url of that data server and go to the Servers tab on Air.
Click on Check where it says Checking routes with the google address.
Enter the data server url you got from speedtest and click Search.
You'll have to refresh the page several times before most of the servers display a ping.
Then, find the server with the lowest ping value (in or near your home country) and connect to it.
If you're concerned about the load of a particular server, you can check it on the Server page.  The server with the lowest ping and lowest load will be the 'best' choice statistically.

How could i figure out the best Server for the lowest Ping ? 


Ping all servers and sort by average answer time ascending. :)
Eddie does that in the background, but if it's not an option, a bit of manual work must be done. I remember a few users around here who used some programs for this, showing all servers this way, but finding something old like that is quite the challenge.

The nearest to your physical location without vpn.


Generally, but sometimes, especially in Europe, servers in neighbor countries can be better.

[Insert "it's not much but it's honest work" meme here]

People built small scripts for this in the past. Maybe someone who did this is kind enough to share his/her honest work with you. :)

Resolve a DNS name to an IP and vice versa:
airvpn.org <--> 2001:41d0:a:6034::

Ping a host, if it pings you back, it's online and reachable:

$ ping airvpn.org -c4
PING airvpn.org(2001:41d0:a:6034:: (2001:41d0:a:6034::)) 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 2001:41d0:a:6034:: (2001:41d0:a:6034::): icmp_seq=1 ttl=56 time=19.4 ms
64 bytes from 2001:41d0:a:6034:: (2001:41d0:a:6034::): icmp_seq=2 ttl=56 time=17.9 ms
64 bytes from 2001:41d0:a:6034:: (2001:41d0:a:6034::): icmp_seq=3 ttl=56 time=18.6 ms
64 bytes from 2001:41d0:a:6034:: (2001:41d0:a:6034::): icmp_seq=4 ttl=56 time=18.9 ms

--- airvpn.org ping statistics ---
4 packets transmitted, 4 received, 0% packet loss, time 3006ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 17.909/18.702/19.414/0.548 ms
