    Try moving your static key into the static key section, not tls-auth section, especially since you're not using tls-auth but tls-crypt.

    go558a83nk reacted to YLwpLUbcf77U in AirVPN’s Twitter…   ...
    I know Air cares a lot about protecting *against* (edit:  forgot an important word here) censorship across the world, but is it necessary to turn their company Twitter into a 24/7 ‘Free Assange’ machine? I like to follow it for finding out new info about VPN servers and things of that matter. Up until a few weeks ago, it was relatively dormant and only seemed to tweet when there was new things about the company*. Now it’s almost turning into an echo chamber for the “anti-MSM” crowd.
    (*yes, you may be run by activists, but you are a business. Don’t forget that).

    As a business owner who does do a lot of social, one of the most important pieces of advice I can give is to separate the politics from your company unless there’s a 1000% connection between the two. I don’t think Assange was an AirVPN user and whether or not you agree with his treatment as of late, it probably doesn’t impact the AirVPN service in any way. I’m also sure there are many other instances of freedom of speech being trampled upon that don’t involve him yet do involve presumably innocent people being jailed for speaking the truth. Whoever is running that Twitter should make a separate personal account and use that as his soapbox as it could lead to potential new users deciding to use a less political VPN provider.

    Please look into your Netflix situation.  I just attempted to watch a video but the speed that could be sustained was so slow the video was unwatchable.  Playback on other video streaming services that worked through the VPN were quite speedy.  Vudu, for example, burst to 300mbit/s to buffer.  Curiousity Stream buffered at 100mbit/s.  Your netflix setup could only manage 5mbit/s.  Not near enough for a 4k stream.

    Thanks.

    go558a83nk reacted to Staff in AirVPN 9th birthday celebrations and reflections   ...
    Hello!

    Today we're starting AirVPN ninth birthday celebrations!
     
    From a two servers service located in a single country providing a handful of Mbit/s, the baby has grown up to a wide infrastructure in 22 countries in three continents, providing now 230,000+ Mbit/s to tens of thousands of people around the world.

    Software related development has also been powered up. Eddie Android edition is now a fully mature application which features an exclusive best effort method to prevent traffic leaks and a complete integration with AirVPN.
     
    In 2019 AirVPN has also started operating in South America, on top of Asia, Europe and North America, and the infrastructure has grown significantly, counting now on more than 260 bare metal servers, whose traffic is mainly powered by tier1 and tier2 transit providers. AirVPN has also become recently an EFF "Super Major Donor" member.

    Furthermore, and we're very glad to announce it here publicly for the first time, development for OpenBSD and FreeBSD has started. We are also integrating OpenVPN 3 on new software which will couple Eddie on UNIX-like systems, including Linux, during the second half of 2019.

    GDPR compliance was already a de facto standard for AirVPN way before the Regulation entered into force, mainly because we don't collect personal data, period. By the way the compliance is now fully formalized (check details in our Privacy Notice and Terms https://airvpn.org/privacy ). AirVPN provides probably the strongest protection to your data, not only personal data but all data, you can find on any service.


    If you are an AirVPN customer or user, you are probably aware that our service is radically different than any other VPN service you might have met anywhere. No whistles and bells, no marketing fluff, no fake locations, no advertising on mainstream media, a transparent privacy policy, no trackers on the web site or in mobile applications, no bullshit of any kind in our infrastructure to sell your personal data to any personal data merchant, and above all a clear mission which is the very reason which AirVPN operates for. https://airvpn.org/mission

    Many of you know that when you buy AirVPN service, you not only support yourself and improve your ability to exercise your fundamental rights, but you also support AirVPN mission.

    However, while AirVPN in itself has flourished, AirVPN mission aims and values related to fundamental rights have experienced, in 2018 and 2019, a grim time.
     
    Australia "encryption-busting" monstrous law is fully in force; the European Union has definitively approved the bad Copyright Directive, mandating automated filters, which will unavoidably limit freedom of expression on big boards, and making the first step to undermine the liability exemptions of mere conduits and web publishers alike; new threats to citizens' privacy are becoming real through plans of wide face recognition deployment, indiscriminate DNA databases proposals, more pervasive and efficient profiling (possibly even through AI), and strict cooperation between Internet tech giants and intelligence agencies; the persecution of journalists, publishers and whistleblowers all around the world has reached unprecedented levels, revealing a widespread plan to suppress freedom of the press and freedom of expression even in so called "Western democracies".
    One of the greatest journalists and publishers of all times, Julian Assange, nominated seven times for the Nobel Peace prize and winner of many journalistic prizes and awards, has been and is prosecuted and persecuted for having merely published the truth about war crimes, corruption, torture and more, with a 100% accuracy, and for having protected his sources as any good investigative journalist does.

    He has been detained arbitrarily and illegally, as widely ascertained and recognized by the UN. He has been victim of an abominable smear campaign based on ignominious lies and defamation, a campaign aimed to turn the public opinion against him and distract from WikiLeaks publications content exposing war criminals in governments key positions, warmongers, torture maniacs, systematic illegal surveillance, endemic privacy violations and plots to limit and reduce fundamental rights. He is currently detained in solitary confinement 23 hours a day, with no access to books, maximum two visits per month, forbidden in practice to coordinate a defense with his lawyers, in a tiny cell of a maximum security UK prison which has been designed for dangerous murderers and terrorists, while UK will decide whether to extradite him to the USA to face a potential 175 years imprisonment.

    Whistleblowers like Chelsea Manning, who should be regarded as a hero, as Noam Chomsky, John Pilger, Daniel Ellsberg and other titans of our times pointed out, have been tortured and are still persecuted by the very same criminals whose crimes were exposed.

    Privacy activists and software developers, like Ola Bini in Ecuador, are imprisoned without charges, simply for having showed friendship to Assange or WikiLeaks, or for having developed software aimed to protect privacy through encryption.

    And the list can go on and on and on.

    But make no mistake: the dark times we are living in, the environment of fear and intimidation that various governments are building against the exercise of those fundamental rights which our mission forces us to protect to the best of our abilities, the mounting attacks against "encryption for everyone" and the awareness that enemies of human rights nestle inside government agencies, have not undermined our determination. Quite the opposite: they have convinced us that our service is even more necessary now and we are resolute to do even more.
      Our mission has been and will be empowered by the ongoing support to projects and NGOs which aim to the protection of privacy, personal data and freedom of expression, now more than ever. We have confirmed our support to Tor and we will progressively add support to champions of freedom of expression and privacy in any way our capacities and abilities will allow us.

    You don't need that much ram or storage for pfsense.  You need a good CPU and good network card(s). The celeron j1900 is out due to lacking AES-NI which is very important for running openvpn.  Both have intel network cards so you're good there.

    The bottom line is Air isn't blocking your access to those trackers.  So it must be them blocking Air.  Why is another question and it really makes one ponder.  Could be related to them favoring VPNs that they're working with.  But that doesn't explain public trackers....  Maybe all public trackers are just honeypots that want to see your real IP address?

    Not new to VPN, but new too Air. And maybe too early to write a review after signing up yesterday.
    But i wanted to anyway. I doubt that i would change my mind totally as time goes, so here we go
     
    When i was new to VPN, i fell for the "Top 5 best VPN!" trap.
    Just search for VPN, and a million sites will pop up "reviewing" different VPNs. Im sure you know what i mean already.
    Its just not easy finding a good VPN when looking around for the first time, and following times.
     
    I was absolutely sure, that if i would start to use a VPN, those "Top choises" was the real thing.
    It took some time to understand what was behind the whole hype. Paid reviews of course.
     
    As i walked through several VPN providers, i was always feeling a bit uncomfortable.
    I started to doubt if the VPN i used really was based in some secure location in Panama.
    So i changed provider after reading up on some other reviews. I remember once when i woke up in the morning, seeing an email from my new VPN provider, asking me how i like their service?
    I replied that all is fine so far, their reply back was: "Good. This is part of our Privacy Policy"
     
    I stopped using VPN that day.
     
    Sometimes its better to trust facts instead of feelings. But i had that gut feeling, telling me something is not right. And i couldnt get rid of that feeling, it was bothering me.
    I took up the chase again, this time determined to find a trustworthy VPN.
    After some intensive research i think i found one.I have used it for a while, never felt let down. Actually i have been very satisfied the whole time.
     
    So why did i even considering signing up for Air, when i already was using a VPN service that i like and trust?
    Well, while i was reading up, determined to find any serious providers out there, Air was definitely one the list.
    There was no reason for not picking AirVPN in the first place. I was kinda tired of all the reading, trying to find some independent source, So while having the website up for the previous VPN, i just gave it a go.
     
    After a while, i was starting to visit AirVPN more frequently. I was interested still, i mean Air was on my list of trustworthy and serious VPN service in the first place. And my list was far from long.
    I liked reading on the forums here. There was so much more to learn. Interesting tech discussions, well written guides, some more features in the client, a lot of happy users and great reviews.
    Now i just had to try. So i signed up.
     
    Now i wanted to get started!
    But instead of download the client, Eddie, I started my journey making 2 support tickets - I couldnt log in to Air from my computer. Later i found out that it was ME who forgot some of my log in details.
    The payment status was also "Pending" still. Kinda embarrassing creating support tickets, when it was an user error. The solution was of course to remember my log in details, and just give it some minutes for processing the payment. The support staff replied almost right away, that was impressing! Once i found out that the problem was on me, not on Air, everything just works great!
     
    The important things, about privacy, terms of service, is very clear, I have been testing out the features in Eddie, i have played online games (I understand theres no limited bandwith, but i figure heavy server load while playing, so please correct me if i shouldnt use VPN while playing online)
    And i experience absolutely GREAT speed! I have been used having slower speeds with other VPN before, but thats not the case here at all!
     
    I really like the client, Eddie. It feels solid, and i can easily change server, change the settings, network lock on, DNS lock, starting up when i start my computer, informative, easy access to the log, its flushing DNS at startup, showing the whole process,
     
    I know, only a day has passed, but im really impressed and happy with the service. I wouldnt write this if i wasnt, or if i believed that i suddenly will change my mind.
    I believe when someone signs up for Air, they are here to stay. At least i am, and i cant see myself going back to anything else!
     
    Thank you!
