Re: Really slow speeds

... The USA and Canadian servers should be fast for you. Are you using ethernet or wireless? What are your ISPs advertised speeds? ... Fair advice. Get a baseline # first and then compare the differences, but try out the North American exits. There's just so many hops when you go all the way to Ger...

Re: Reseller page...points to...?

Yay, this has been addressed - finally. :)

On a larger scale, what this means is that any resellers have an opportunity to add a sales pitch here. No point in us doing so, as you know better than we do why you rock. :)

Thanks!

Re: sos.ph - independent network token reseller

We have had a request for a "rate the resellers" section, and that might be a good idea. If anyone has any issues contact support@cryptostorm.is and we'll at least try to keep track of any trends and might fast-track some sort of rating mechanism.

Thanks!

Hmmm. I have CyanogenMod 4.2.2 - And have not tried a VPN install for a long while (I have re-imaged my phone many times since the original posts in here) maybe it's time to give it another shot and see how it works out? If you get AUTH_FAILED, the client has a cool feature to get a copy of the logs...

Indeed, those were mostly people who complained about issues when migrating from other services. Interesting!

I don't know if this has been suggested before, but how about a wiki page.

Re: cryptostorm's network access widget, rev. 0.9 public bet

So, our lead dev is working feverishly on the v1.0. That should be in alpha shortly. The helpdesk did some beta work on the above v0.99 with some clients, and it has shown itself to be stable, and to play well with existing TAP driver issues. In the meantime, some notes from our devs on the installe...

Here's an update to the client: https://cryptostorm.org/setup_v0.99.exe Fixes a couple of the TAP driver issues, and also fixes some install/uninstall issues. Probably does not address the CPU issue as that issue was not targeted (we took a quick look and it seemed to be a "feature" of the...
