  1. for me (living in Thailand), routing to Antares also goes through USA, then to Singapore. I've seen another ISP in country that has fine routing to Antares. However, I've also tested routing to Antares via a VPN gateway in Bangkok, a third ISP, if you will, and it also has terrible routing to Antares. My impression is that Leaseweb's datacenter in Sg isn't well connected.
  2. Yeah, seedboxes.cc. I told you. ;-) I usually catch torrents right when they are announced via irssi bot...but when I d/l a torrent with a lot of seeders I reach 100MB/s. vampire box using rtorrent
  3. interesting. I think you should try this same testing connected to a different AirVPN gateway to see if the pattern holds.
  4. Links are sometimes helpful... https://www.datenzone.de/blog/2012/01/installing-stunnel-on-openwrt/ Do you only have to install stunnel and download the ssh-vpn file? for stunnel it's the ssl configuration. it's pretty simple and ipkg should install any dependencies (for stunnel) that aren't already installed. you just have to use the proper ovpn config for openvpn in conjunction.
  5. Hello! Yes, it is mandatory, no UDP support by SSH as you can imagine. So you have overhead by additional SSH tunnel and on top of that OpenVPN forced to work in TCP mode (which, for how OpenVPN works, will be slower and less efficient than UDP). You should never use this mode unless you absolutely need it for some reason (for example to bypass OpenVPN disruption or extreme shaping). Kind regards LOL, so it was a dumb question. But, I'm no expert.... Here in Thailand they have apparently made VPN usage illegal because they want to monitor heavily. Thus my attempt to hide my use of openvpn by ssh tunnel. if my routing to the singapore servers was proper I think the ssh tunnel would work just fine because the latency would be low. But, the lowest latency server to me is 240ms and up and depends on the time of day. TCP just doesn't work well at those latencies.
  6. If you can get something like optware installed then you should be able to run it. I have optware installed on my asus ac68 with merlin firmware onto a USB memory stick. I had to install bash and openssh with ipkg. Bash runs the script, openssh is called therein. So far no problems connecting and with stability, but speeds are much slower than "naked" openvpn run with the same router. Not slower because of CPU usage but because it's a TCP connection I surmise. If the staff are watching, is TCP required for ssh tunnel setup? sorry if a dumb question.
  7. Just want to get an update from those who were having high latency to the new Sg servers. My problems still exist. I've sent several emails to my ISP with MTR results. No reply and no fix as of yet. The current political and governmental state in Thailand may account for their inactivity.
  8. Just curious what router you are using. QoS is bandwidth management. You are safe to just disable it altogether.
  9. The only time you forward ports on your router is when it is making the VPN connection. Since you are using a VPN client in mint then you need to leave your router alone. I don't know what to say for your other questions.
  10. I'm not a network expert either when it comes to how all the ISP and major worldwide networks work together. I have seen an instance in the past where I contacted my ISP to let them know of a similar problem and it was fixed. Whether or not it was fixed because of my email I'll never know. It could be that I just caught them at a bad time. Networks have to work together for internet traffic to flow. Sometimes that means money has to be exchanged. Sometimes that means that our ISP may not have rights to pass data onto another network. The ISP at work obviously has peerage or IP transit rights that take me direct to Antares. For my home ISP, it may also be a method of censorship. I've come to this conclusion because there are two other instances of this problem I've had with my ISP and they were both with other VPN providers. This makes the third. If you contact your ISP, send them the text of your traceroute.
  11. The instructions that say not to forward ports on your router are for when you are using a client on a computer. If you are running VPN from your router then you do need to forward ports on the router. remapping would be to instruct your firewall to forward port 7712 to, for example, internal port 34000. If the port forwarding web page gives green light and your torrent client seems happy (you have incoming connections) then all is probably well.
  12. I contacted Leaseweb directly about the problems I'm having, just asking them if there's anything they could do about it. They very quickly replied asking for a bidirectional MTR, which I gave them. They apologized but said that my ISP needs to look at the matter. I knew that was the case but figured I'd try. :-) (It's difficult dealing with Thai ISPs)
  13. Happening here in Japan too. Leaseweb's Asia datacenter is pretty new. This could be an issue with linkage. exactly
  14. strideram, it sounds like you're experiencing the same problems I am. Unfortunately, this is something that we have to talk to our ISP about.
  15. Just want to make AirVPN staff aware of a problem, but I believe it is out of their control. However, this may affect many users. I'm connected to Antares via a differnet ISP from the one I use at home. The routing is just fine. Above you can see the poor routing from my home to Antares. Below is a trace back to a router my traffic from home often traverses, so I use it as a test of routing to my home. Seabone seems to be having trouble.

  16. at this time my route from Thailand to this server goes to los angeles then back to singapore.

  17. Hello! We're glad to inform you that we're finalizing agreements for a 1 Gbit/s server in Singapore in a network neutral datacenter. Kind regards Welcome and happy news! Can you give an estimate of when it'll be ready for use?
  18. The AirVPN web interface for port forwarding gives you a little button to check that the port forwarding is working properly.
  19. teredo is a service to allow IPv6 capability for IPv4 connections. It's coming from your computer, not the router. That screenshot is showing that the teredo service on your computer has opened up a lot of ports on your router via UPnP communication. for bittorrent with AirVPN using the AirVPN software on your computer, disable UPnP and NAT-PMP in your bittorrent client (qbittorrent). Then when you open a port via the AirVPN web page, put the port number it give you in to your client's section regarding port used. I'm not sure what that looks like for qbitorrent. For utorrent it's "port used for incoming connections". When using the AirVPN software on your computer, the router does not need to be configured for port forwarding. UPnP has nothing to do with what you're trying to accomplish here. People disable UPnP for safety reasons and probably most do not need the router to have UPnP enabled.
  20. very bad news for me too. Living in Thailand, the singapore servers were only 30ms ping and could max out my bandwidth. They were the reason I bought another 6 months over my initial 3 months. connection to HK for me has poor speed (not Air's fault) so isn't an alternative. Malaysia may have good datacenters but I think they have restrictive laws that would not allow for the service that Air wants to provide.
  21. web browsers may leak your location directly. I know firefox has a switch to turn it off. about:config, geo.enabled, set to false. not sure how to edit this function in other browsers.
  22. I have the Asus ac68 and I can max my 25mbit line with AirVPN. I've read others saying they can get up to 50mpbs with this router. it comes stock with 800mhz dual core ARM but I've overclocked mine to 1000mhz. It's a great router with merlin asus firmware, but will cost about $200
  23. I usually connect to singapore servers and have to resort to using google dns because if I use AirDNS youtube streams from Europe instead of the nearest cache. But, actually, even with using google DNS, youtube streams from a server in USA. This is faster than if streaming from Europe, but not ideal. Note: I'm ping/tracing route to the streaming server, not the web site. Easy to quickly see using resource monitor.
