New country: New Zealand - New 1 Gbit/s server available

Recommended Posts

Hello!


We're very glad to inform you that a new 1 Gbit/s server located in Auckland (NZ) is available: Fawaris. We're also very pleased to be back in Oceania.

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

The server accepts connections on ports 53, 80, 443, 1194, 2018 UDP and TCP.

Just like every other Air server, Fawaris supports OpenVPN over SSL and OpenVPN over SSH, TLS 1.3 and tls-crypt.

Full IPv6 support is included as well.

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

You can check the server status as usual in our real time servers monitor:
https://airvpn.org/servers/Fawaris


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

Kind regards and datalove
AirVPN Team

Saw this server the other day when I went to fire up a new connection and its great to see!

Any plans for other servers in the region? As an Australian it would be awesome to see some more local servers.

If memory servers, AirVPN did at one point provide an Aussie endpoint server but it was withdrawn very quickly thereafter due to bandwidth shaping. One again, if memory serves, there is also a retention/snooping law which is highly preventative in allowing AirVPN to find a datacentre/host that fits with AirVPNs strict privacy requirements.

Hello!

Your memory does not fail. At that time, the infamous "anti-encryption" framework was not law in Australia. Later on, the "anti-encryption" laws were enforced. It is currently the main problem in Australia which prevents us from operating VPN servers there (we operate only geo-routing ones).

Kind regards

Hello!

The agreements between intelligence offices to exchange information more liberally are irrelevant for our purposes, due to the nature of our service. They do not make the situation worse. You have absolutely no additional protection from traffic monitoring by intelligence agencies according to the location of the server, as Snowden documents show. If the adversary has such vast powers, our service is insufficient by itself alone in any case and in any country, and the only level of defense (which may be very effective!) is enforcing what we call "partition of trust".

Provided that the target device is not compromised. of course... any attacker with vast power and precise targets will save time and efforts by simply cracking the device of the target, instead of hunting packets all around the world and correlating them.

Kind regards
