In this guide we’ll show you how to set up an ultra secure connection to our servers using HYDRA.
First, a bit about our VPN service:
SlickVPN VPN connection
In a regular connection to our servers, you connect to a gateway over a secure VPN tunnel, and your traffic exits our network to the public internet from that gateway. Your traffic is mixed in with other users on that server to randomize the data as much as possible.
Best Case Usage: Use regular VPN connections when you need the highest speeds or precise geo-location.
You connect to our gateway over a secure VPN tunnel. Your traffic is then routed securely over another VPN tunnel to a random server node, before exiting to the public internet. This makes it virtually impossible for anyone to compare outgoing traffic from your computer to traffic leaving our servers.
Best Case Usage: Use HYDRA servers when you want the highest level of security and speed or geolocation isn’t a consideration.
Here’s what you’ll need to do to set up a HYDRA connection:
Download and install the latest version of the client from our Downloads page.
Go to the Locations tab
Make sure the ‘CORE only’ box is unchecked
Sort the server list by City, then scroll to the ‘H’ section
Double-click the Hydra entry and wait for the green light to come up.
