New TUVPN VPN Custom Client Wish List

Have Your Say Add comments

TUVPN has started the process of developing its own VPN Client. This will be a software geared to provide plug & play functionality for less technically savvy users. Of course, as TUVPN is about choices, we will keep all our currently available options open.

The first release of our custom VPN Client will have basic functionality including auto-updated list of VPN servers, Openvpn support, password save, automatic reconnection etc. We are considering other features and as always value our customer's input and ideas. We have prepared a list below! (you can choose more than one option, and if you think of something else, please leave a comment):

    Great stuff and thanks for giving us input in this, the future of the best VPN 🙂

    I like using the service as it is tbh but would be tempted to use software if you incl some of the above which I have already voted on, so wont incl in this post. However I would like to add that an option in this software should be present so one can choose protocol UDP or TCP via ports 1194(UDP) or 443(TCP) to connect to the network AND the option to run a proxy (Any-type socks…) through the software (Connecting to it) and then on wards to the network as OpenVpn does in Windows, which allows the user to input a proxy address & port number as well as password if it’s required, so when they connect to a VPN that VPN sees the proxy and not the actual persons IP .. extra anonymity.

    Something else that would be great incl is the ability to chain multiple protocols on the network via the software such as for example SSH(Germany) > Elite proxy(UK) > OpenVPN(Spain) instead of doing it manually … makes it much easier for newbies to sort out.

    Whilst I am delighted that you will be developing your own client (I voted for all the options) one is left wondering why modifying the latest release of OpenVPN to use a password file is seen as ‘difficult’.

    Very glad to be a customer of TUVPN.

    Hello TUVPN team,

    Please, could we see on TUVPN an option to chain VPN servers with a double VPN or also a triple VPN. Technically, it is possible for TUVPN to propose this option ?

    Thanks in advance.

    P.S.: like http://safe-inet.com/en/buy

    An other proposition…

    I’m thinking about this option :

    “Exclusive tunneling also called Secure IP bind, Connection Guard or VPN Guard.

    Exclusive Tunneling – protect against compromising your data on unstable connection.”

    Hi Valorisa,

    First question has been asked a few times. Technically we would need to do some changes in the authentication mechanisms of our network and we feel that at the moment the addition of a custom VPN client has much more priority within our current/potential customer base. Anyway, we have it under our radar.

    Second question, all this “nicknames” fall basically under what we ask in the poll:

    Block ALL internet access if VPN disconnects

    Block SPECIFIC APPLICATION internet access if VPN disconnects

    So we are already considering this and is also we already offer through our SSH2 Tunnels.

    @tuvpn
    When will be the prototype of the client ready? Is there already a time for the release?

    Hello,

    Some VPN clients with an anti leaking feature already exist. If TuVPN wants to really be innovative, I think its VPN client and network should offer :

    – The ability to connect to different servers (OpenVPN or SSH) at the same time

    – The ability to easily switch from a server to an other without this horrible 5 min delay

    – The ability to force an application to only use the VPN network. Or also… to only use the normal network. For now if I use the VPN for a P2P application, I’m also forced to use it for my other communications. What I don’t really want since it can cause speed, banning or privacy problems.

    Thanks

    Peter, no, we don’t have yet a release date. We are digesting your input and deciding a way forward (i.e. not easy to integrate our 4 VPN protocols in a single client, but it is something it seems you want, so need to think how/when…).

    Liou, about your proposals:

    – The ability to connect to different servers (OpenVPN or SSH) at the same time

    This is technically impossible (if you mean from same device).

    – The ability to easily switch from a server to an other without this horrible 5 min delay

    We have just released this in our latest OpenVPN client: http://www.tuvpn.com/downloads/TUVPN-2.1.4-installer.exe, reinstall and there you go.

    – The ability to force an application to only use the VPN network. Or also… to only use the normal network. For now if I use the VPN for a P2P application, I’m also forced to use it for my other communications. What I don’t really want since it can cause speed, banning or privacy problems.

    This is precisely what you can achieve with SSH2 Tunnels. Please check: http://www.tuvpn.com/en/tutorials/windows7-ssh2-standalone-application#step-0.

    Thanks to all for your input!

    Hello Tuvpn and thanks for your answers,

    – “This is technically impossible (if you mean from same device).”
    I don’t mean several Openvpn sessions, but several SSH tunnels. And the ability to still use them when openvpn is launched.

    – “We have just released this in our latest OpenVPN client:
    Thanks ! 🙂

    – “This is precisely what you can achieve with SSH2 Tunnels.”
    Yes but without incoming connections. And you certainly know that it’s a big problem for several P2P networks.

    What I wanted to know, it’s if it was possible to only use Openvpn for an application, and let all other use the usual route. It seems difficult.

  10. tuvpn Says:

    Regarding your first point, by now not possible because of one active session limitation. To have openvpn + ssh running at the same time (what technically is possible), we would need to allow more than one session per user with the same account what would bring other problems.

    And true about incoming connections and SSH2 Tunnels. This is not something that can be fixed in our current structure. As you know an SSH2 Tunnel is not a VPN and has no related IP assigned. As we are sharing IP at the server level, we can’t forward ports to users.

    And finally about openvpn and just using it for certain applications, it is not possible because when you connect you openvpn client, your default gateway is changed to the VPN assigned IP and so all your traffic goes over it. This is common to any other VPN technologies (PPTP, L2TP…) only one that allows you to filter VPN use by application are SSH2 Tunnels with the aforementioned limitation regarding incoming ports.

    “Regarding your first point, by now not possible because of one active session limitation. To have openvpn + ssh running at the same time (what technically is possible), we would need to allow more than one session per user with the same account what would bring other problems.”

    Some other providers allow it, with a limit on 1 IP max per account on the infrastructure, which reduces the risk of abuses. So why not Tuvpn ? It’s a pity to have a so important choice of servers without being able to take advantage of it. One example, the ability to use the features of Foxyproxy which allows to create rules depending on urls visited.
