Speed Test

Use the speed test to find the fastest servers for your location




Set various options like Launch and Connect at startup or Enable logging for debugging.



This section allows changing various options like the IP leak protection (internet kill-switch), UDP or TCP connections, and port.


1) Common

Set default gateway – This option enables/disables sending traffic over the VPN. Default is enabled (protected)

IP and DNS leak protection – This option acts like an internet kill switch. This will keep your internet from working if you lose the connection to the servers.

Protocol – UDP or TCP. UDP is faster but TCP is useful in some cases when you want to mimic HTTPS traffic or if you’re having trouble staying connected

Port – Changing ports may help if you’re having connection issues. Can be used in conjunction with protocol to mimic HTTPS by choosing port 443 and the TCP

2) Balancing

Load Balance – Automatically choose gateway based on server load

Random Balance – Connect to a random server each time you connect

3) IP Settings – Use this to automatically change IP at a set interval. The client will reconnect to other VPN gateways in the same city

Interval to change IP – minimum 5 minutes
