  1. I'm curious about whether users can truly max out the operational capacity of the 10G Full-Duplex Servers. In my experience, the Haedus server in New York rarely surpasses 3.5G out of its 10G bandwidth rating, and this observation holds true for other 10G servers as well. Even at its peak, when I employ multiple connections for seeding or torrenting, the speeds don't seem to reach their full potential or remain consistent. I'm referring to the use of multiple connections in a manner similar to employing several simultaneous TCP streams to increase download/upload speeds from a server. Interestingly, there was a point when I could seed/upload at a continuous gigabit speed on the Haedus server. However, this experience isn't limited to torrenting; I've conducted tests using Iperf and other high-bandwidth usage scenarios. Strikingly, I find that I can use the most bandwidth when torrenting, presumably due to the ability to have several thousand leeches connected. I consistently get about 500 - 700 Mbps on the Haedus server using Wireguard. I can't help but wonder why I haven't seen more bandwidth being utilized, especially with the increasing number of users on the server.
  2. I'm glad that we now have a 10-gigabit server in New York. However, I'm curious about the possibility of future upgrades extending to other major metropolitan hubs like Los Angeles, CA, Chicago, IL, and Dallas, TX. For me, I have the best latency to Chicago, so that's an area I would like to see upgraded. On a related note, I'm also curious as to why we don't see the decommissioning of other lower bandwidth servers when a new 10 Gigabit server is introduced to the same area. I know that the benefits of redundancy/failover, maintenance, load balancing, and resource allocation are some of the reasons why you would have multiple servers in the same area, but I don't see how it is beneficial in terms of cost.
  3. I propose to add an additional option to generate a config file per City (https://airvpn.org/generator/) that will connect to the most optimal server for that city based on server load. This would work similar to how when you connect via Country or Continent. What I mean is when generating config files (https://airvpn.org/generator/) you can only select the specific servers for each city, rather than selecting just the city itself. The problem with connecting via Country or Continent is it will often connect you to a less than optimal server relative to your location. For example, Chicago based connections might be connected to Florida etc. which ultimately leads to connections with bad latency and lower speeds.
  4. Hello! I thought it was time to try and collect some of the wisdom floating around and see if we can't create a single thread for solving some of the most common and annoying repeat-issues. So how about it ! I define "common problems" as: if I'm getting a deja-vu every third time I post . Staff will have broken the Matrix by this point. Each problem will have its own headline and then with any number of solution-oriented links appended underneath. For this reason, this grand list isn't final and is meant to be updated continually. Naturally, the higher the link number for a solution, the more obscure the solutions are probably getting. Warning: solutions aren't guaranteed.

  5. Hi, After I've forwarded the right port in AirVPN client area and put the right settings in qBittorrent, I finally get great speeds while connected to the VPN service. However, the speeds (for torrents), seem to fluctuate heavily between 0 and 200Mbit (my max speed). I have the feeling it is because of some setting or limit somewhere that high speeds cannot be sustained. Here is a screenshot of the Eddie speed: More info: - Using network lock - Using OS X 10.12.6 - Using an SSD - Using Asus AC-3200 router - Only using the utun3 network interface in qBittorrent - Used settings described here for qBittorrent - Disabled firewall on router - Looked for any settings in my router that might impede sustained speed like ICMP flood detection but cannot find those - Using port forwarding in client area Is this normal behaviour? I don't really mind it for the time being, as speed is much faster than before, however maybe I'm missing a setting that could prevent this?
  6. Just got airvpn and the download speeds on torrents keep rising and dropping all the time. Ive downloaded in the past without VPN and with a different VPN and the speeds were always steady around 900 kbs and 1mbs or higher. With airvpn its constantly fluctating every minute or 2. It goes up to around 1 mbs, then drops to 100kbs rinse and repeat. Already tried different servers and ports through SSL and SSH same thig.
  7. I am a total noob. I am connected to air vpn and the internet seems to be functioning fine. I did look through the "how to" threads and found them to be very helpful. But....since I am still a noob I need further assistance. -How do I use the service correctly? I'm using safari, normally. Do I need to do anything extra? If airvpn is functioning properly are all my internet activities through safari scrambled? Do I need to do the RNS thing? Should I only use safari? Do I need to do anything special when using Tor? I am aware that I cannot torrent through tor? -When I do the ipleak test my IP address does not come up. It confirms the server I selected. Is there anything else I should be looking for? I'm also slightly bewildered about the "Network Lock" function. Should I be using it? -I am primarily using a vpn to torrent. If I pass my ipleak test is there anything else I need to do to remain anonymous? Am I good to go at that point? I was planning on using Pirate Bay on safari. is that a good combination? I'm pretty sure I changed the port correctly. when looking at my speeds they spike and drop down to zero. Is this the standard for speed I should be expecting? I tried a test torrent and a 15 song album took about 5 minutes. I haven't done any torrenting in about 8 years so I'm unsure if that is normal. I would like to optimize my torrent speeds, though. Is there anything a noob like myself could do to optimize my speeds through qbittorrent? I apologize if this post is redundant or annoying. Thanks in advance to any and all for help/advice. Here are my logs..hope it is formatted correctly.

  8. I have connected using the AirVPN client, SSL with stunnel, and SSH. For SSH and SSL both i used airvpn's configuration generator. But I am still consistently getting only 2-3Mb/s(sometimes less, sometimes around 5Mb/s MAX.) Any and all suggestions that might help with this would be much appreciated. Thank You.
