https://whoer.net

offers interesting info about my VPN service, or lack thereof at the moment. As I am bareback 'cause I blew up my CS router, I'm asking for your opinion of this site.

It doesn't look very credible, tbh. IPLeak seems to be better.

What happened to your router?

Just out of curiosity parityboy, why doesn't it look very credible?

Using their site, I was able to find a problem in Firefox and that lead to changing a config and now ipleak.net shows Private Use rather than a leak.

Given that whoer is in Russia, I doubt they will be around much longer as a VPN service. But they feature one nice service. If you click on the balloon that shows your percentage of privacy, it will show where your problems are. Using that I eventually fixed mine and whoer shows 100% privacy. Not believen all they say, but it's a start for a noob like me.

Their browser identifications look legit, but some of the other data isn't accurate.
I'm on one of the CS US South nodes at the moment and whoer.net is saying I have no ports open.
That's not true, because every CS exit node IP will appear to have all TCP/UDP ports open.
This isn't a security risk, because the only thing behind the IP is two OpenVPN instances (one for UDP, one for TCP).
iptables is used to forward traffic from all ports to one of those two OpenVPN instances, so that people behind a restrictive non-DPI firewall can still access CS (i.e., like when UDP port 1194 or 443 is blocked, but not UDP port 53).

As for their VPN service, I wouldn't trust it. There's absolutely no technical details on their VPN page, just some generic marketing terms ("the most protected, secured communication channels all over the world", etc.).
A good idea would be to avoid any VPN provider that requires you to register/purchase before you can view their client configs.
