Re: Major reliability issues with CryptoStorm since October

@OP Look here for further info. From what I myself have experienced, it may be related to the session tracking code in the authentication mechanism. Go here and check your token to see if it has reached "maximum number of sessions". If so, mail the token hash to support@cryptostorm.is and...

Nice idea, but "meh". A good iptables script is far more effective, at least for me.

Re: After connect

@OP The short answer is "yes". The long answer is "yes but look into setting up your firewall so that the connection doesn't leak if/when the VPN connection drops." The Windows widget doesn't yet have a built-in "kill switch" to guard against this. If you're on Linux, ...

Re: CryptoFree on OpenVPN

@NYOB

That last one is an epic /facepalm. Why block VPN? To me that's retardedly stupid. If anything, they should welcome VPN usage, since it inherently and automatically indemnifies them against any consequences of "unwanted" network usage.

Re: Serious Drops and packet loss South node

@thread

My latest session lasted 3d23h45m before failing due to "inactivity timeout". I checked the token and it had not run out of sessions.

Re: cryptostorm dnscrypt servers

My apologies for posting this again (thought I was logged in when posting the first time). Like I was saying, this posting has been stagnant for just over a month now without any real answers. I'm not going to ask them again, I'll just refer to the OP's questions (although I'm mostly curious about ...

[phoronix] WireGuard Secure Network Tunnel Is Eyeing Mainline, Running On Android

Back in June we reported on WireGuard as a next-generation secure network tunnel for the Linux kernel . We haven't heard much on WireGuard in recent months, but this New Year's morning we received a message from their lead developer with a status update. WireGuard creator Jason Donenfeld emailed in...

Re: Serious Drops and packet loss South node

@ntldr Check your token here while it's logged in on a single session. If the checker complains that the maximum number of sessions has been reached, send a message to support@cryptostorm.is So far I have session to two nodes, and they have been solid for ~48 hours (previous token ran out). @thread...

Re: CryptoFree on OpenVPN

@NYOB What you've written is both worrying and interesting. I very much doubt a publicly-funded library is using expensive DPI equipment, so could it be that that they are simply blocking UDP/443? Blocking TCP/443 would of course be foolish, as would playing whack-a-mole with exit node IP addresses...

Re: ASUS-WRT Merlin - OpenVPN Client

@belowzero One thing I noticed when setting up pfSense for Cryptostorm is that even though the exit node pushes its DNS server down to the client, this data is not applied to the general DNS settings when the VPN tunnel becomes active, so if I specify Google's DNS server, that's precisely what the ...

Parityboy, You've been a real trooper. This was never your task to perform.

Re: [pfSense] Transparent Darknet Access

@Fermi OK, I have a better sense of what is going on here. For seamless access to I2P and Tor websites, you have to create a Domain Override. However, when creating the override, you MUST specify the IP address of the DNS server sitting on that particular exit node . Alternatively, you can specify ...

[Feature Request] pfSense-Friendly Darknet Access

@df [For background, see here ] Can you alter the DeepDNS policies on the exit nodes such that if you query a darknet FQDN from an out-of-tunnel address (including other exits), the result is NXDOMAIN ? In other words, if I'm connected to the German node and my query for an Onion address is sent to...
