Re: Slow connection on Tunnelblick

@parityboy Thanks for your reply. I just wasn't sure if the IPv6 thing is an issue or not. But apparently it is not :) For the speed I checked several nodes and got the following results: ⋅ NETHERLAND - down: 10 Mbit/s, up: 11 Mbit/s ⋅ DUSSELDORF - down: 18 Mbit/s, up: 20 Mbit/s...

And if there's not enough staff to satisfy the demand, first thing you need to do is to expand your staff to satisfy...

Frankfurt node is very picky since yesterday. Every 15-20 minutes I have massive timeouts for about 2 minutes and then it mostly gets back to normal. When the timeouts while browsing appear, I made ping tests. Pinging the LAN-router is 1ms. Pinging my own External IP: 46.165.222.245 gives ~55ms But...
