It may be that the script in question is hosted on the site, or embedded in the page. It might be worth examining the page source to see if you can see it.

Re: OpenVpn Empty Password

@OP As far as Cryptostorm is concerned, the asset used for network access is the (hashed) token. In the Cryptostorm usage model, the password is considered legacy and only exists because it is required by OpenVPN. Therefore, the password can be anything but it must be something - a single character...

Re: Torrents not seeding on VPN

@OP It depends on the torrent. Public torrents (which use DHT) work pretty well. Private torrents depend on at least one of you having a publicly reachable port to initiate a connection. If everyone in the swarm (including the seeder) is behind a firewall with no port forwarding, no content will be...

@OP

I just tested this - it's a Javascript issue, so a short term fix would be to simply disable Javascript.

Re: Error: Authorization failed for that token

A better approach would be to have a website basically like the purchasing system. Dump your token into it, provide an email address, and a new token the correct length is sent to you. The old one is blocked. You're essentially buying a new token with an old blocked one, but a record can be kept fo...

Re: Auth failing

@FaffToResetTokens

Yes, you send the hash of the token in question. The servers only keep records of the hashes, not the original token.

Re: Error: Authorization failed for that token

@Like blackberries It's not ideal but there are options, however cumbersome they may be. Obviously this depends on how you paid for the token - if you used your real name and your own credit card then the risk only becomes apparent if you then send the same token to be reset while using a different...

Re: Cannot connect to any server.

@OP

1. How did you create the token hash? In a terminal do this:

Code: Select all

echo -n <token> | sha512sum

This will give you the correct hash.

2. The password can be anything, even a single character, but cannot be blank.

Re: Slow connection on Tunnelblick

@OP Thanks for the reply. TCP will likely make things worse (or at least sub-optimal) but if it makes things better that would point to UDP traffic manipulation. I have an iMac 24" from early 2009 (C2D 2.66GHz, 4GB RAM), running El Capitan 10.11.6. Unfortunately, my connection is 8Mb/1Mb so I'...
