Question for networking persons or persons who might know more about this than me in general.
I'm looking at setting up a server as vpn server (that part I know) which tunnels everything through multiple other vpn connections.
So let's say I've got a vps which I connect to through vpn. I then want that vps to have one or multiple connections to other vpn servers.
That way i can connect my devices to this server which routes everything to/through other services like mullvad :).
Tried it before but ended up losing ssh access until reboot 😬
Considering mullvad is based in sweden (xkeyscore, 14 eyes, ..) and has never seemingly had any public court record proving its claims, is it really to be trusted, instead of e.g. BlackVPN/NordVPN? does the server location matter if they are based in sweden?
Is it just again an excuse like "even if that happens, I am only hiding from X, I have nothing to hide from Y"? so e.g. your neighbour can't snoop, but a court if they decide everybody that visited devrant is a criminal - is alright?
PIA is based in the US (no discussion level of bad), but atleast got tested twice already and each time could not return any logs, even though I like mullvads model and it is clearly better than being US based, it still makes one question if mullvad is not yet another PureVPN in fancier clothes?15
tldr; Finally my NordVPN subscription comes to an end so I was looking at other VPN providers and I chose Mullvad. So far, it is an amazing experience.
It has been 2 years since I was using NordVPN. It was great at first but soon first problems started to appear. Speeds were not exactly breathtaking and I barely sqeezed more than 40Mb out of it. Another problem was connecting from PC to PC on local network with both of them connected to VPN. I never found a working solution.
Then Tefincom started pushing it literally everywhere. Ads on YouTube (+ partnerships), fake websites redirecting to NordVPN, etc. That was when I decided to just fucking wait until my subscription ends so I can finally delete my account there...
Today is the day. I decided to go Mullvad because it seemed to be really privacy focused (don't kill me - I know I can't have *real* privacy with VPN, but you also can't have that with your own VPN) - they don't know anything about me, no email, no name, no payment data (Bitcoin Cash). Speeds are absolutely f*cking amazing and also local network works!11
whenever I suspend my laptop my openvpn would get stuck on reconnecting and I'd have to ctrl c and wait for like minutes so it would correctly close. so I only used VPN when I really needed it.
but then I found out: mullvad (my VPN host supports wireguard! and so wireguard is a more passive protocol, and doesn't need to keep open the connection. so now I can just set my VPN to "always on" and not worry about it anymore, yay!
ps: you should have seen my face when I found out mullvad gives away free stickers! :D
So i was looking around for a VPN service. Ppl here seem to like Mullvad. I was looking at Mullvad NordVPN and PIA . I dont know a lot about NordVPN but PIA seems to be going opensource with theyr clients which i think is great. So can anyone say anything about the VPN services above. Good and bad stuff woul be appreciated!13
Heard many of you use Mullvad-VPN.
What are your experiences, I just bought 2 months, because I wanted to know if their "pay with cash"-thingy actually works.1
Im facing an issue with my schools network.they block almost all ports. Ssh isnt open and a lot of websites are blocked. Cant use a vpn to surpass that sadly. Tho a vpn with sstp support works. Can someone reccomend a vpn that allows sstp or can i somehow make mullvad use sstp?4
I'm looking for a VPN-Service.
Mullvad vs Tunnelbear.
Do you have any experience/recommendation? Or maybe another service altogether?2
