That's the thing - this option is already present in the official Windows config files. "Blocking outside DNS" can be clearly seen in the console output.

Re: URGENT: The Heartbleed Bug

I am very, very concerned that there has been no answer yet. It has been confirmed that keys can be expropriated from the Heartbleed bug. I would really like a concrete explanation of why I can still trust your service, because right now, I don't think I can. Even if your CA hasn't been compromised...

Re: URGENT: The Heartbleed Bug

Saw this mentioned on the main page of Wikipedia today, and then found this topic. Thankfully, the folks at OpenVPN have rolled out an update already.

Re: No connection with windows 8.1

The latest official config has been fixed, so there is no need for copying stuff around anymore. Assuming that the OP doesn't mind to be prompted for password upon every connection.

Re: [UNOFFICIAL STATEMENT] about the current forum situation

Thanks for your response, Graze. Well, I can't speak for everyone, but, personally, I am willing to wait if it means getting better security/performance/etc. in the future. Keep up the good work, guys! A couple of things to add regarding the config thread update: 1. Somehow, "windows-dynamic0.9...

Re: [UNOFFICIAL STATEMENT] about the current forum situation

I can do that. But on the other hand you can do, too! ;) Don't worry! This is not me being snappy but trying to get people less afraid of contacting support via support@cryptostorm.is or other contact channels .

Re: [UNOFFICIAL STATEMENT] about the current forum situation

Thanks for the information, DesuStrike. Indeed, I felt that the forum has become less lively as of late. Speaking of configs: I think I found out how to fix the latest official one for Windows (which simply doesn't work). Could you ask someone in charge of these things to take a look at the beta thr...

Re: cryptostorm: non-widget Windows config file beta testing

Since the issue has been (hopefully) resolved, I'd like to ask the staff members: is there any hope for us to see an official update to the Windows config in the foreseeable future?

Re: poll: where to add new exitnode clusters?

Re: cryptostorm: non-widget Windows config file beta testing

It's this one here: https://cryptostorm.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=6069#p8418 :-D Double checked That's weird. It works for me (I'm writing this message using this very config)... Perhaps, some of the servers is down? BTW, I figured out why the latest official Windows config ( cryptostorm_client_...
