VPN Discussion / Re: Still not anonymous?
« Last post by garyS91 on Today at 06:02:06 AM »
I got an Infringement letter after downloading a popular show torrent while using both a VPN and a Sock5 Proxy. How is that even possible? I was also using Peerblock with updated block lists from Iblocklist. Client is Deluge. I have killswitch and IPv6 leak protection turned on, Was also using a foreign server...Still got an infringement letter. What did I do wrong?

seems like either:

1. you used a proxy instead of a vpn (just unblocking vs encryption and anonymity)
2. your ip got leaked half way (seems less likely)
3. your provider provided the logs to authorities (check your provider's policy on this)

If 1 is the case, read up on proxy vs vpns. If 2 is the case, read up on kill switches and tunneling and if 3 is the case, go through your vpn provider's policies. also, do read up a bit on how a vpn for torrenting works.

VPN Discussion / Re: Best VPN for Torrenting ?

What to look in a VPN if i need it for tormenting? Either look for its anonymity and privacy or i should look for unblocking?

their log policy. pretty much any proxy can get you through the region restriction if it has a server in another region where that service/app is accessible. the perk of a vpn like ivacy or nord is its encryption more than unblocking. and if torrenting is your only need then unblocking doesn't even matter, but anonymity sure does.

TOR won't work.  you can't guarantee a US IP.

VPN should work just fine.  Make sure you are using a US VPN hub.  May I recommend CNSVPN.NET

I work here so I know it will give you a US IP ;)

could your VPN provider have ratted you out?  check for a privacy policy that specifically says they do not record logs.

If not that, are you sending all your traffic thru the VPN?  what did their support say?

China / 中国 / Best VPN to unblock Chinese Internet
« Last post by BarrySDCA on September 19, 2017, 09:59:02 AM »
easily it's CNSVPN.NET

use the Los Angeles hub and enjoy totally unrestricted Internet.  Many Chinese ISP's peer in Los Angeles so the quality of the connection is excellent.  And you have an IP address in the USA, totally unrestricted.

Bitcoin is accepted too.  So you don't need to register your real name when you pay with bitcoin.

You might try subscribing to a VPN service and then bridge it to your office network.

always look for a privacy policy that specifically states they do not save logs.

Dude, I wouldn't waste either your time or mine in writing such a details note. Just will give you a tip. Just visit the PureVPN's website and compare what you have mentioned above. :) & In case if you are worried that If this VPN is safe or not? then follow the link. It will help you in a better way.

VPN Discussion / VPN and LastPass Password Manager
« Last post by aafrank on September 12, 2017, 04:06:38 PM »
Hi.
I use LastPass as a password manager.
Until recently, I was using ExpressVPN and had no issues at all with LastPass while connected to VPN.
ExpressVPN seems great, but it has a rather high price tag compared to other competing VPN programs, so decided to give NordVPN a try.
I've been trying it for almost 30 days and the experience has been perfectly fine with just one exception -- LastPass will refuse to work while NordVPN is connected.
It connects successfully and then disconnects almost immediately. I then receive an email from LastPass saying: "Someone, hopefully you, recently tried to login to your LastPass account from a device or location that we did not recognize. We prevented access until you have reviewed the details of the login attempt: ..."

So somehow it seems that LastPass is fine with ExpressVPN, but will not work while connected to NordVPN.

I emailed both VPN customer service departments.
I asked NordVPN why this is happening while it is not happening with ExpressVPN.
Their reply:
Quote
That happens, because VPN makes LastPass think, that your location is different, thus preventing you from using it. However, we are not aware of a workaround for this situation.

I then emailed ExpressVPN to ask -- hey if it makes perfect sense that LastPass will not identify my device/location when connected to NordVPN, then how come it works fine with ExpressVPN?

Their reply:
Quote
While you're connected with ExpressVPN, you're actually using a shared IP address. There might be another user who's already using our VPN service for LastPass and the IP they're using is already recognized by LastPass. This can be why it doesn't trigger the security login feature when you loging to LastPass using our service. Since we have so many customers already, its safe to assume that our IP address has been marked as safe by various websites.

Does this sound reasonable?
Has anyone had similar experience?
My trial period with NordVPN ends in a couple of days, and this might be a deal-breaker... so just wanted to get more info on this before I make my decision.

Thanks!
