Re: Strange speed difference when downloading

Can you try this one and report the results? wget -O /dev/null http://cachefly.cachefly.net/100mb.test Those flash/html5 speed tests are very unreliable and regularly provide completely false information. With apple I wouldn't be surprised if there is some kind of traffic shaping based on ISP in pla...

Re: HOWTO: DD-WRT Routers

You are absolutely right! Thank you very much for pointing this out. The screenshot is fixed now.
I did this guide from memory as I don't run CryptoStorm on my router right now and felt I forgot something. This was it.

Re: beta testing of new, in-house DNS resolvers | DNSchain

I run dd-wrt as well. I just bought a aleph token- would greatly apreciate any attention admin here could give to the dd-wrt setup thread, it's a bit of an outdated mess. To be perfectly honest, more than a couple tutorials suffer from the same affliction and we're working to fix that. We've alread...

THANK YOU! I was waiting for this like from the day I switched to cryptostorm. DNS censorship is a lengthly discussed issue in my country but even though we managed to prevent it being broadly deployed so far there already is a (recently leaked) government maintained secret blacklist for "yout...

I'm not even remotely close to be an expert like you are but I also grew desperate on this topic when I tried to secure a server. There is just no cipher suite available at the moment that is both 100% acceptable from a security stance but also compatible with all popular browsers and OS. If you wan...

Re: 1.4 config files (draft versions posted here)

I don't see a discussion thread so I reply here:

I wonder whats the difference between V1.3 and V1.4.

I use the V1.3 configs for all nodes and aside from the hostnames which I don't use it's identical to the V1.4 configs posted here. :eh:

Re: [ghacks] Priv8 adds sandboxed tabs to Firefox

Oh wow! I have to take a closer look on that one! Sandboxing isn't the holy grail as many exploits used for sandbox breakouts proof but it certainly adds a somewhat useful extra layer of security if done right.

Even though I never tread on an environment that hostile it blocks even port 443 this certainly is one step towards VPN blocking circumvention. Even though a little one.
