ibVPN, one of services that I like and use, has presented their new Windows app. The ibVPN All-In-One VPN v2.0 is not only better than the previous version, but it also represents an important step forward.
My first impression
The new ibVPN Windows app does not follow the latest app design trends as most of the VPN providers do. The app is not over-simplified and it can be used by both the beginners and advanced VPN users. Let’s take a deeper look to the most important features.
Easy connect/disconnect: Automatic VPN Protocol selection & Fastest Server option
The basic function of every VPN app is to connect and disconnect. The ibVPN app does it simply and easily. Open the app and click the Connect button. The default settings are Fastest Server and the Automatic protocol. The Fastest Server option seems to search for the fastest server to connect to. The criteria are not clear, but the search does not take long, which is good. Starting from the second attempt the connection is even faster.
If you want to connect to a certain server, click on the Fastest Server and select the location. You may easily get the servers from a certain location, those that allow P2P traffic or that unblock certain streaming channels.
The Automatic protocol actually takes the protocols one by one and tries to connect to the selected server. As far as I can see the default protocol is L2TP, but it can be easily changed to PPTP, SSTP, IPSec, OpenVPN. [click to continue…]
This article briefly presents I2P Darknet and explains why it is a good option for hiding your IP address while sending an email or downloading torrents.
What is I2P?
Basically, I2P is a large anonymizing network, similar to Tor, with some distinct differences.
The Invisible Internet Project (I2P) was launched in 2003 as an anonymizing network focused on securing the internal connections between users. By connecting to the I2P a device or computer becomes part of a distributed and decentralized network that allows secure and anonymous communications.
As a side effect, I2P bypasses filters and governmental restrictions.
How does it work?
I2P is designed such that users can communicate to each other anonymously, meaning that both sender and recipient are unidentifiable to each other as well as to third parties.
The communication is message-oriented. Each message is encrypted and passed through several network nodes from the source to the destination. The exact mechanism is not exactly easy to understand, by the following I2P infografic may help. [click to continue…]

Do you want to watch your friends playing your favorite games? Is Twitch blocked by your ISP or by the company network? Find out what you need to simply unblock Twitch.
What is Twitch?
Twitch is a social video platform and community for gamers, video game culture, and the creative arts. Millions of visitors gather every day on Twitch to watch and talk about video games.
What can you stream or watch on Twitch.tv?
- Games – All kinds of games and genres (League of Legends, Hearthstone, Dota 2, Overwatch, Counter-Strike, World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, Dark Souls, Minecraft, Dishonored, Civilization VI and many more).
- User generated content – Content created by the community.
- Esports – Competitive gaming.
- Events – Conventions from all over the World.
- Twitch Creative – For artists to showcase the creative process.
Why is Twitch blocked?
The access to Twitch.tv is not geo-restricted, meaning that the site itself does not block users based on their location. However, there are governments (in China or Iran) that block the access to Twitch site for the Internet users in their countries.
Why? Probably due to the fact that they can not control or censor the user-generated content in an efficient way. The blockage is implemented using country-level firewalls, but, the good news is that, it can be easily bypassed. [click to continue…]
