New exitnode cluster: United States of NSAmerica

Postby cryptostorm_team » Fri Feb 21, 2014 5:52 pm

note: folks seeking the most current client configuration files need not wade through this entire discussion thread! The current versions are always posted in a separate, dedicated thread, and will be continuously updated there. Continue reading this thread if you're curious about the details of the config files, want to see earlier versions of them, or have comments/feedback to provide - thanks! :thumbup:

We have put a footprint in the Land of the Surveilled: the United States of NSAmerica (Eastern seaboard)

Attached is a tested Linux/"raw" configuration file (version 1.3).

Underlying TLD-redundant hostname mappings have been propagated as follows:

Code: Select all

windows-unsae.cryptostorm.net
windows-unsae.cryptostorm.org
windows-unsae.cstorm.pw
windows-unsae.cryptostorm.nu


Code: Select all

raw-unsae.cryptostorm.net
raw-unsae.cryptostorm.org
raw-unsae.cstorm.pw
raw-unsae.cryptostorm.nu


This cluster has not yet been put into general/dynamic production pool resources - we're hoping for some member feedback before doing so. As such, consider this a late-beta deployment of the cluster. We'd rather make it available for final perf-tuning publicly with network members, than keep it in-house longer and thus prevent wider member usage.

Our in-house testing has thus far shown excellent performance characteristics. But as always, we've one request for our member community: hit it hard!

Feedback appreciated.

@spotshot,@cryptostorm_team

How does the upload manage to be so much faster than the download, on a connection which (I'm guessing) is actually the other way around? I noticed this on the old network as well: my connection is 8Mbit/1Mbit, but for some reason testing over the CC VPN yielded 7Mbit/3Mbit.

Doesn't do it to me with CS, but maybe my connection isn't fast enough to expose this behaviour on CS?

I have wondered the same but never looked in to it,
normal connection seems to test with upload being the same
or less than download, but with vpn its the other way around.

Unless you're in the UK where the FTTP provider (British Telecom) will limit your profile(s) to 80/20, 220/20 and 330/30, just so they can protect their symmetric leased line business. :cry:

Hi guys,

Thought I would like to have a quick wander around the dark side, so I downloaded and tried to connect to the US cluster but with no luck. I'm using:

Viscosity OS X client
OS X 10.9.1
Star Wars on the TV
Blue Suede Shoes

I tried to start the connection but even before the password prompt I get the following error:

Code: Select all

The OpenVPN subsystem could not be started. Please see the log section (the third icon) in the Details window for more information.


Then it goes without saying that I am unable to connect to this exit node.

I am able to connect to all of the other exit nodes without any problems using the same setup, indeed the Icelandic cluster has been connected for a couple of weeks now and I've had zero problems with it. I've pasted the log from Viscosity in case it's useful.

Hope this helps

Mousy

@Mousy

If you downloaded the raw configuration and imported it into Viscosity you probably need to remove or comment line 16

txqueuelen 686
# expanded packet queue plane, to improve throughput on high-capacity sessions


This is what it is complaining about. Just use a text editor to comment it out, then reimport it and try connecting again.

As spotshot mentioned, great speeds for a vpn.
Happy Happy.

Damn, Australia is lagging behind in the internet speed section... But I must admit, UNSAE via Android provides faster downstream than my ISP does lol...

I have tried all the exit noids running win 7 on Amd quadcore 4 gig ram live in the sticks so only get 13 down and about 2 maybe on a good day but usually 1 .. but I am only hitting 1 maybe on all the noids down and alot worse up.. does not matter which onei use .. live in the Usa

This thread is supposed to be for the new server. You have posted speed results from the Iceland servers. What are your speeds for this new server? You have to use the new config file provided in the first post.

The USA and Canadian servers should be fast for you. Are you using ethernet or wireless? What are your ISPs advertised speeds?

Which configs have you tried? For some configs like the one I've linked here, you may have to disconnect and reconnect to get a faster server.
cryptostorm_client_production 0-9b download/file.php?id=388

For example, I live in NJ and have advertised speeds of 50 down & 25 up, so the North American servers are fast for me but when using the other servers like Iceland I get this :

I am ethernet . isp speeds are 13 down 1 up. i have the config file i have been going over the guide on how to manually add the config files to the wigets over and over i add the USA server noids one by one the client connects but then when i try to surf or do anything else there is no connection to internet .. even though the client says its connected .. I am not sure what i have done wrong . tried connecting and disconnecting .. the recommended housekeeping procedure also. I am sure its me and i have missed something ...

I do not use Windows so I'm clueless about the widget and troubleshooting procedures, hopefully someone else can chime in, you should also contact a member of the team to get more immediate help with this issue.
