Does Cryptostorm VPN work with Google Wifi?

Postby thehealer » Sun Jul 29, 2018 2:15 pm

I saw somewhere that certain VPNs don't work on Google Wifi. I'm not technically-inclined enough to work my way through the technicalities so would someone please be kind enough to provide an answer whether or not Cryptostorm can be accessed on a meshed Google Wifi network?

Really appreciate your feedback!

@OP

I don't use Google WiFi so I have no evidence, but if it fails to work it's likely because they are blocking either port 1194 (OpenVPN's default port) or port 443/UDP (commonly used by VPN providers to get past firewalls).

In such an environment, you could use port 443/TCP to connect to Cryptostorm - blocking that would mean blocking HTTPS and nobody is going to do that. :)
