Re: Token repeatedly has auth failures, too many logons.

It's not just a mobile thing. Have had the same f* annoying Auth-Failure Disconnect issues on a mac lately. First, my dd-wrt wouldn't connect anymore, but support for that had always been s* if you're not a superfreaky geek I guess. That's why i switched to Tunnelblick, which is only the second bes...

Re: Token repeatedly has auth failures, too many logons.

@ Wobbly Coconuts Are you using a 1M token on your mobile? In that case it could be that the timeout of 120s we have server side could indeed be a nuisance. It would surprise me that it disconnects more often now than it did in the past. In the past we had indeed some 'grace' sessions buffering thi...

Re: Token repeatedly has auth failures, too many logons.

I'm trying to just do normal web work tonight with both free and paid, and I get a wonky message in OpenVPN 2.4 about: Thu May 04 22:49:53 2017 us=369602 [server] Inactivity timeout (--ping-restart), restarting This seems to happen and then the connection goes to crap. Once it goes to crap, I then g...

Re: Error: Authorization failed for that token

Thanks for the heads up on Protonmail. It seems expensive for what they offer vs Tutanota. But then Tutanota don't seem entirely 'safe' either. On PGP, does anyone have a small 'app' that does PGP encryption? Ie, takes a string and encrypts/decrypts given certain keys? Is there something that might ...

Token repeatedly has auth failures, too many logons.

My token is on the 3rd failure now. Each time it takes real effort to reset it. Guerrillamail or the like, cryptofree, captchas, emailing my token over http, or faffing with PGP. If I'm on my mobile and out and about, losing VPN is a pain. Using Safari or Brave is a pain to email via 'free' sites my...

Re: Error: Authorization failed for that token

@Like blackberries It's not ideal but there are options, however cumbersome they may be. Obviously this depends on how you paid for the token - if you used your real name and your own credit card then the risk only becomes apparent if you then send the same token to be reset while using a different...

Re: Error: Authorization failed for that token

A better approach would be to have a website basically like the purchasing system. Dump your token into it, provide an email address, and a new token the correct length is sent to you. The old one is blocked. You're essentially buying a new token with an old blocked one, but a record can be kept for...

Re: Can't seem to buy tokens anywhere?

@df As tariqh rightly points out with his WebRTC concern, it's the risk of scripts generally that trouble me. Call it an exercise more than anything. More obfuscation is good as it makes any correlations increasingly hard to make. The worry is when you load up ipleak.net and see a simple script can ...

Re: Can't seem to buy tokens anywhere?

I managed to get a 1 week token (a quick test so if it went wrong, not too much cash down) I connected via Cryptofree. Created a guerrillamail temporary account (save the seed key and address to double check if you need to reload it!) I just kept allowing all the stripe junk to run. I also set Firef...

Re: Netflix bypass

I'd like to know this too. CS VPN seems to work here on my iPhone for Netflix, I assume Netflix think if you're on an iPhone you could be in another region, and so they legally have to provide you only with that region's allowed content. However as soon as you try project it with an ATV it stops wor...

Re: Can't seem to buy tokens anywhere?

Thanks for the reply. It seems javascript is useful at your end to assure things like masking email addresses from scrapers, but causes difficulty at the user end to assure no real IP data or fingerprinting is going on. I was using my iPhone at the time I contacted you initially, the layout of the s...

Re: Can't seem to buy tokens anywhere?

I tried on the iPhone which worked ok. I used a guerrillamail web address for the token to go to. But the new 'swipe' bitcoin payment also suggests you'll get a web provided token. Since there is no 'QR' payment system either, only an address, there is no trusted authentication (unlike the old Bitpa...

Can't seem to buy tokens anywhere?

The main cryptostorm page central box for bitcoin purchases. It just sits there and does nothing, or it says a swipe/key wasn't passed or something in plain text. Either way I can't buy a token unless I use paywank or credit scam cards. Is this a bug, the new bitcoin payment system down? The page ba...

Thanks for the great information feedback. I ended up running firewall notifier and also setting up rules for the windows firewall.

In the past I've used cstorm successfully using the linux balancer profile with a multi-month long token without issue. My token expired and I didn't use the VPN for a month or so on my iPhone. I've since got a new token, and it all works fine on my desktop computer. But I'm having trouble getting i...

Re: Talking about IMEIs will get you killed

I remember people reprogramming these back in the mid 90s when phones were relatively expensive, theft was rife, and reprogramming was really 'useful' to criminals.

Malwarebytes, system security and trusting installs

In trying to optimise a Win7 machine ( :shock: ) to be as secure as possible, it's reasonable to make sure outward facing software is controlled or trusted as much as possible. Malwarebytes is quite noisy on the firewall so raises suspicion. It's blocked until I let it through to update. Update chec...
