[v4.21] SoftEther VPN – World’s only best, long-term effective and unblockable free VPN

We all knew that, Lantern just abandoned the most perfect and mature P2P work mechanism it initially used, turned into another normal commercial VPN client with excuse: their IPs were blocked too often, they can’t afford. I want to ask – how is it possible for the original P2P mechanism to be blocked? AppNee should say – this commercialized world is never in short of excellent commercial VPN services. So, if Lantern refused to turn around, we could only watch it become a passing meteor. And, it’s time to turn to SoftEther VPN again.

SoftEther VPN (formerly named SoftEther, short for “Software Ethernet”) is currently the only ultimate powerful, easy-to-use and long-term effective VPN (Virtual Private Network) solution in the world, designed for blocking resistance for bypassing government censorship firewalls in many countries. It is free, open-source, cross-platform and multi-protocol (such as SSL VPN, L2TP/IPsec, OpenVPN and Microsoft Secure Socket Tunneling Protocol in one VPN server), started as an academic research project in University of Tsukuba, Japan. It runs on Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, FreeBSD or Solaris computers.

As a new generation of VPN software, SoftEther VPN has very strong stability, flexibility and extensibility, can be widely used in personal, family networks or small and medium-sized business networks. Besides, SoftEther VPN can provide an advanced network environment with necessary high bandwidth and capacity of bearing high load operation for large enterprises, Internet Service Providers, etc.

Compared with OpenVPN or Microsoft’s VPN servers, SoftEther VPN is an optimum alternative. It has a clone-function of OpenVPN Server, so you can integrate SoftEther VPN into OpenVPN with ease, with faster speed. In addition, SoftEther VPN also supports Microsoft SSTP VPN, so there is no need to pay expensive Windows Server license fees for Remote-Access VPN function.

For short, AppNee summarized SoftEther VPN as 2 points:

  • volunteer-organized and open-source (so it is truly permanently free to use)
  • supports for Dynamic DNS and NAT Traversal (that means any organization’s or government’s firewall can not detect SoftEther’s VPN transport packets at all, so it’s unkillable and unblockable).

So, when many VPN or proxy servers (such as BBWD and Lantern) your were using do not work any more, don’t forget the invincible SoftEther VPN! But please remind yourself to remember one thing – SoftEther VPN’s stability is not so good in the course of actual use, that’s why it provides tens of thousands of VPN servers around the world. For this, AppNee just hopes you could pay a little more patience when using it, then, you would benefit a great deal!

How to add a new server by yourself:

  1. Connect – New VPN Connection Setting…
  2. Choose a “DDNS hostnameform “VPN Servers List” (e.g. vpn942905830.opengw.net), and copy/paste it in the “Host Name
  3. For “Auth Type”, select “Standard Password Authentication” with “User Name“: ‘vpn’, “Password“: ‘vpn’, then click “OK”
  4. Double click the new VPN connection you created, that’s all

// Tips //

  • When you find none VPN server can be connected successfully, AppNee tells you one trick – use DNS Jumper to apply a new DNS (and flush the DNS cache). Then try again, you may get a surprise!
  • When want to pause or exit SoftEther VPN, you’d better disconnect the connection first, or you may need to reconnect your physical connection.
