  1. @Staff any plans to revisit this? It has been a few years now, and things have changed for the better in India, wrt Internet. Please do consider opening an India server.
  2. Thanks a tonne. Really feels nice to have one's faith/loyalty rewarded Another posted asked for more details on what made this change possible. Even I am interested in hearing more.
  3. Off-topic, but I have found linksnappy and premiumize.me to perform far better; and neither have issues with VPN access.
  4. @ofiris, I didn't submit a ticket. The issue continued for many days. However during that duration, I was able to connect properly and get good enough speeds. Close to 80% of what I get without the VPN. A few days ago the client started showing proper scores and latencies. The latencies were still rather high ~250ms. That said, the latency shown in the client is highly dependent on the ISP. The latency issue was discussed a few months ago on another thread and the conclusion was that we need to contact our ISP and get them to implement proper routes or something.
  5. Sigh. I had posted a few weeks ago about the servers showing very high latency. That continued on till today. Today, the client is not showing the score or latency. I have attached a screenshot and the log. I have restarted the client/system multiple times. I have tried different udp/tcp ports. As can be seen from the log, I tried connecting to one server, but it connected to another. Under the stats tab, its showing the server latency as -1. When it did connect, I was getting very slow speeds. As can be seen from the screenshot, 171KBps. Without the VPN, I was downloading the same file at over 900KBps.

  6. Up until yesterday, most of the Netherland servers would have score of 2-3 stars. The Canada ones would be 1 star. The latency for the Netherland servers would be in the range of 120-160. The Canada ones would have a latency of around 220. However since yesterday the client is showing me the following. When not using the VPN I am getting proper 10Mbps download speeds. When connected to the VPN (either Canada or NL servers), the download speed drops and is not consistent, it keeps fluctuating. Is anyone else having similar issues?
  7. @gurejoks, I have a similar experience as psychlops, right clicking and selecting paste works fine. The keyboard shortcut has never worked for me.
  8. I think its a Windows related bug. I have noticed this to happen, when some sort of full screen app is running (say watching a movie or playing a pc game) and the connection disconnects/reconnects. When you switch out of the full screen app and return to the desktop (ie the taskbar is now visible) the last few generated notifications get played all together. Looking at the logs wont show anything for that time frame, as the actual event happened a while ago. Another instance when this happens is, say you hibernate/sleep your machine while airvpn is connected. When you resume the machine, AirVPN will auto connect. If you wait a few minutes before unlocking the comp (by entering the password), then you will see the notifications get displayed all at once, even though the reconnection had happened a few minutes ago. I have seen the same behaviour for notifications generated by windows apps, written by me. We (my team) never managed to figure out how to prevent it, though we didn't spend much time on it as we felt that the delayed notifications still had value. As for the last notification staying visible till we explicitly dismiss it, thats a li'l irritating.
  9. Welcome to AirVPN, swainston. I am just another regular AirVPN user. As knighthawk mentioned, it would help to mention the following details - - Are you running the openvpn client on your router or desktop/laptop? - Are you running the latest Eddie client? Or are you using the standalone openvpn client? Which operating system, version? - Which protocol, port combination have you tried? Some ISPs tend to block/throttle vpn connections on certain ports. Is your ISP listed under https://airvpn.org/forum/20-known-isp-issue/? - Try Protocol UDP, port 53. Try different servers, instead of auto connecting to the recommended server, try a Netherland one, like Castor or Erikas or Julliet etc. - Try the SSH or SSL tunnel options. They have a performance/speed overhead, but they are the last resort options. AirVPN works wonderfully and whatever issues I have had, have all been ISP related. Just for comparison, if you previously had a VPN subscription from another provider, what settings worked properly?
  10. I am connected to Antares on UDP 443. I have a 4Mpbs plan with my ISP. And as is visible from the speedtest.net result below, I am getting above 3.5Mbps. That said, I would classify the Antares server as "unstable". I say "unstable" with the quotes cuz technically as per the status reports (https://airvpn.org/servers/Antares/) the server is stable and working properly. I have had moments when suddenly the speed would drop to below 0.5Mbps. Reconnecting to Antares wouldn't help. If I connect to one of the Netherland servers, then I am back to 4Mbps. It doesn't happen all the time and its not as bothersome, so I never complained. There are existing threads on this forum on how to diagnose speed issues. I think the most commonly suggested solution is to try connecting over UDP 53.
  11. I started having seeing the captcha yesterday on Castor. I swiched to the Asian servers and they work fine.
  12. @Staff, @JD Hopps - Just my two cents. Stating something works with Mavericks, says nothing about whether or not it will work with older versions. "Vista" and "Windows 7" certified software can and do work properly on XP. Point being "designed for Mavericks" does not imply "not works with older OS". Neither does saying "Mavericks supported". In your response above you worded it correctly as "works ONLY with Maverick and Yosemite" (emphasis mine). I think its better for the long term if you state that explicitly on the following pages - https://airvpn.org/macosx/ - It currently reads Mavericks supported. https://airvpn.org/macosx_ex/ - The OS support is not mentioned. (The link in the first posts leads to this page even though the text reads like earlier link). https://airvpn.org/topic/11578-os-x/ - Mentions latest tested version is Mavericks. To me this reads "it may or may not work on earlier versions". If the evidence from the past 3 releases is to be considered then its a fact that the client doesn't work on older versions. and in the first post of the release threads for each version. It is unrealistic to expect every user to thoroughly peruse the forums to figure out that in some random post somewhere the Staff clarified older versions aren't supported. ----------- Regarding the latest version - All good on Mavericks. Cheers :beer:
  13. I have been using Eddie 2.2-2.4 on Windows 7 x64. I have always ensured that those three settings have the values you have described. I have never had any issues on Windows. I have been using the Mac versions since it was released. With same setting's values set as mentioned. I have had a mixed experience on OSX 10.9.something. The client connects successfully when the app is first started. But if for some reason the connection is lost, it gets stuck in the connect-disconnect-reconnect loop. Doesn't always happen. Quitting the app, ensuring the Wifi DNS is not set to AirVPN DNS and starting app seems to resolve it. Regarding the Exit Confirmation - Huge NO. On my Windows machine I hibernate it a lot. If AirVPN is running when the machine is put into hibernation, on resuming the Servers tab gets badly glitched. Its constantly keeps refreshing itself making it impossible to select a server. Point being I quite the app a lot. Also if I forget to quit app and I try to shutdown/restart the machine, it simply WONT proceed further till I cancel the shutdown, answer yes and try again. Very frustrating. I prefer the confirmation prompt to NOT be enabled by default. If as a user I need something like this, I would ask in the forums and get redirected to the appropriate settings tab.
  14. @giganerd, what do the checking routes result mean? Cuz as per the results, Castor is showing Fail. However I am currently connected to Castor (UDP 443) and able to access ip-api.com (http://imgur.com/ahS5PKY) PS: When I embedded the image url in the post using the `Image` in the posts toolbar, I got an error message on posting - "You are not allowed to use that image extension". Do I need to request permission?
