Two new 1 Gbit/s servers available (US)

Recommended Posts

Hello!


We're very glad to inform you that two new 1 Gbit/s full duplex servers located in New York City are available: Haedus and Iklil. They are going to replace Dimidium and Gliese.

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

The servers accept connections on ports 53, 80, 443, 1194, 2018 UDP and TCP for OpenVPN and ports 1637 UDP for WireGuard.

Haedus and Iklil support OpenVPN over SSL and OpenVPN over SSH, TLS 1.3, OpenVPN tls-crypt and WireGuard.

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 status as usual in our real time servers monitor:
https://airvpn.org/servers/Haedus/
https://airvpn.org/servers/Iklil/


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

Kind regards and datalove

Switching from Dedipath to more m247.  😞


Hello!

Unfortunately DediPath could not serve us anymore and demanded block of specific outbound ports to block traffic coming from the usual cretins who spam or have their Windows machines infected with spamware. M247 never posed such a problem to us. Before breaking net neutrality so blatantly we will try with reliable providers and port block remains the last option to be enforced only when absolutely unavoidable (currently we only block outbound port 25).

Kind regards

So, I've got my pfSense connected to both Dimidium and Gliese, when exactly will those connections go dark and I'll have to reconfigure for the two new servers? I'm assuming the entry IPs are going to change after the switch, though it'd be cool if they didn't, heh. Damn I'm lazy.

I'd love to get to know the action plan when M247 starts asking questions… will you break down half your server fleet? :)

If you mean requirements to infringe Net Neutrality, beyond our will (which is blocking outbound port 25 and nothing else), they are unlikely because the contract we sign with them is clear under this respect (and not all providers offer clear contracts). Furthermore, in so many years, a requirement to infringe Net Neutrality has never been made by M247.

More in general, providers which requested or enforced by themselves NN infringements have been very few in these 12 years of operations, maybe four, as far as we remember, including one with strange infringements like blocking ICMP altogether.

M247 servers, for your information, are 30% of the total in our infrastructure, not 50%, and yes, they can be replaced in the unlikely, worst case scenario. Remember that we still have an oversized infrastructure, so we would be able to do it with no service interruption. Of course if all of our providers enforced Net Neutrality infringements together, then our mission could not be accomplished anymore integrally, or at least not easily at all in a short time, but that's another story.

Kind regards

Look. I'm not the first raising suspicions about the disproportionately high share of M247 servers compared to others. This gets increasingly evident if you isolate the dataset to individual countries. The thing is that, even if it's ~30% of the fleet, M247's share is 66% in DE (10/15) and in UK we're looking at 100%, just as an example. All 15 servers are M247 there. So even if you say the infrastructure can take such a huge hit, the sobering fact is that you will lose the UK flag entirely when shit hits the fan, and DE will be on the brink of overload. Plan for the worst, hope for the best, you know?

Or, you know, maybe you do plan to the best of your abilities. Maybe you do play the hand you're dealt as best as you can. Maybe there really is only one single choice you're left with in UK. I can totally understand – if it's communicated that way. But if 100% is M247 in one country, it looks like an evident Single Point of Failure right there to me.

This is what I'm concerned about in the end: You're trusting a single provider, who is more or less notorious for being a safe haven for at least many, many VPN providers, with delivering a performant, reliable, perpetual service on the promises of a sheet of paper. I always wished AirVPN to prosper, and probably always will, but even I can't help but feel a slight discomfort looking at where the numbers are headed.

@OpenSourcerer

Thank you very much for your concerns and your continued and ongoing support. You have no peculiar reasons to worry about, under this respect, for we have plans considering even the harsh UK and Germany scenario you depict.

Kind regards
