    At the moment it is not possible bit but rest assured we will get some WireGuard servers going very soon Regards

    Protocol: TCP is more reliable, bypasses firewalls that ban UDP traffic. Use if A: You are behind a restricted network(School, Government, Corporate Business), or B: You only surf the web/check emails, or various other light tasks that don't require speed). UDP is more faster, best for downloading, streaming, gaming. Use this if you have no issues connecting to stuff and require fastest speeds. Cipher: Cipher is the level of encryption the VPN will use, which will basically scramble your data in a unreadable format so if someone is spying on your network connections they won't be able to see what you are accessing/visiting(Your ISP for example). Which is important to use if you are going to be accessing questionable material. AES-256-CBC will provide with the highest level of encryption. Use this if you are paranoid. SLOWEST. BF-CBC (Blowfish), offers better encryption than AES-128 with minor speed difference, this is my go to cipher. SLOW. AES-128-CBC will provide minimum level of encryption, good for most people. FAST. No Cipher - You never want to use this as it doesn't encrypt your data at all, so people can see what you are doing online. FASTEST. Note: You won't notice much difference between the highest level and lowest level of encryption unless you do a lot of downloading. You can play online games, stream content without much difference on BF-CBC or AES-256-CBC. Fastest to Slowest: No Cipher >> AES-128-CBC >> BF-CBC >> AES-256-CBC Fastest to Slowest: HMAC-SHA1 >> HMAC-SHA256 >> HMAC-SHA512 You can see all the encryption ciphers here: https://torguard.net/tgspec.php Checks to make sure the adapter is installed. It's for the killswitch feature, if you lose connection to the VPN you can instruct torguard to disable your main network device, then have it re-enabled when you try to connect again. You can leave this disabled, I think it increases the quality of the TorGuard menu if on a higher resolution monitor. I never had to use it. Cipher Warning is when you don't set an encryption level as explained above. Network tab is where you will be able to set which device you want TorGuard to disable when you lose connection. There is also various other things, like webrtc/dns leak prevention on that tab. It's rather straight forward, if there is something in particular you don't understand feel free to ask. Proxy TAB is for STEALTH connections to bypass restrictive firewalls (School, Government, Corporate and Government networks like China). Generally you shouldn't have to worry about that tab. The last tab is for dedicated ip's that you purchase through TorGuard. Set: Cipher AES-128-CBC STEALTH Protocol TCP Enable DNS Leak Prevention Enable Webrtc Leak Prevention Enable IPV6 Leak Prevention Set DNS servers to OpenDNS or Level3 or Torguard You shouldn't rely on others to give you "best" settings, as it depends on what you need the VPN to do and should be tweaked accordingly by you for best results. The proxy service gives you access to Socks5/HTTP/HTTPS/SSH proxies, which is useful for torrenting or added protection, if you don't know what a proxy is: look it up. It's just an extension for Chrome that uses SSL proxies which doesn't offer the same level of security as TorGuards VPN client. Explained above. Umm, not sure what you mean by "proxy servers from Google", I am going to assume you mean the DNS servers settings for: Google, OpenDNS. Which in that case, it's for preventing IP leaks, so you don't use your ISP's dns servers which will pass on all your hostname queries to your ISP which is bad. Google is bad pick for DNS servers if you care about privacy. Use openDNS or TorGuards servers. Hopefully that helped explain things better.

    Good day. I guess this a Feature Request? I think the port-reservation website should let us pick a "pool" (a city) and then suggest a server automatically; even better if it looks at which port we want and then picks a server that doesn't have that port already reserved.Here is why I'd like this: When you connect to a "pool" the VPN client picks a server randomly from that pool. This means that on average, every server in the pool will have the same load - the same number of users using it. However, if 1000 people have reserved ports on Server A, then we can expect that particular server to have, on a bad day, 1000 more people using it, since TorGuard graciously lets us pick which server we connect to (you can "pin" a server in the client, or even multiple ones if you want.) So if I were to want to pick a server for my own port forwards, I'd want the server with the least amount of people already reserving ports on it Because that particular server should be the one with the least load, on average. As it is, I can't really pick any server over any another in the same pool, since they all ping about the same - I can't tell which has the least load. This should also benefit TorGuard, helping to distribute load across servers more evenly. Regards,

    Hi, for some time now I've noticed that the download speed on different servers have decreased dramatically. I can only get relatively decent speeds when using the closest server. Anything further away drops to 10-20% of the achievable speed without using VPN. For testing I have used: https://www.thinkbroadband.com/download These are the settings I'm using: Any suggestions?

    I have requested it for a while now. TG has assured me that this feature will be live in the next Android client release. So, you can hold your breath if you want!

    We can now confirm that all torguard servers are now safe from the VORACLE attack brought to light by Ahamed Nafeez at the DEF CON 26 hacker conference on Saturday - you do not have to do anything client side as this is a server side fix but we do recommend all users upgrade to the latest TG version from our downloads page released on the 8th of August.

    HI there Balexter The New York one is the same as you have or can use, About the streaming ip it was move from Arizona to Michigan, after it was done I did get a better speed out of it. but as you have try it I am not sure, it will help you It can also be that your ISP are throttling you when using VPN, I have been trying out difference VPN providers, and did come back to torguard as I got the best streaming speed I did try out one where then speed I got out of New York, as the was the streaming ip was only good for SD but at the same time a friend got the speed I was after. But I never got that. So after 20 days I ask for a refund

    Release torguard-v3.88.0, 2018-08-22 ==================================== * All platforms: New Loading Screen This version introduces a new loading screen beeing displayed, while the VPN is started. It unifies the user interaction during the "VPN startup phase" and replaces various dialog boxes. The "VPN startup phase" begins when the user clicks on the "Connect" button and lasts until OpenVPN or OpenConnect has been successfully started. During the "VPN startup phase" network interfaces, routes, DNS, etc. are being prepared and configured. The new screen will display step by step what is going on during the "VPN startup phase". It should help the user understanding why a the connection process might take long or does not proceed. Some steps, e.g. enabling an interface that was disabled by the Internet Kill Switch or waiting for the default route, can be skipped by the user but then must also be fixed by the user. Previous versions did allow the user to skip the same steps by displaying a dialog box after a certain timeout. Warning: Using the skip function might leave the function partly uninitialized and should be used carefully. But that has been true for previous versions too. Internal Changes: ----------------- * All platforms: Refactor connect method These internal changes prepare the application for being divided into a backend service and a separate frontend. Downloads

    == Release v1.1.36, 2018-07-01 * Reconnect when the screen is back on This option is related to "Disconnect when the screen is off" feature. If OpenVPN was stopped while the screen is off, the user can now choose to reconnect the VPN when the screen is back on. * Add Port/Auth choice The user can now choose the Port and Auth independently from the Cipher. All ports have a list of Cipher that the user can choose, except of port 1194 that is reserved for no encrypted connections. * Add Auto port The user can let TorGuard choose the best port, leaving the default "Auto" option in the Port/Auth choice. The port chosen will be in accordance to the cipher selected. * Add port 53: Tls-Crypt option used The user is now able to use the OpenVPN "tls-crypt" option. In order to do that, the user should choose a server that allows it too. Right now, servers that are using the tls-crypt option are running on the port 53. * Disable cipher negotiation Ensure OpenVPN will use the user selected cipher by disabling cipher auto-negotiation. * Add Proxy option to preferences The user can now select a proxy type to connect to from the preferences before opening a VPN connection. Available are either - no proxy - custom proxy - stealth proxy The stealth proxy option is not available for devices with an armeabi architecture. Downloads

    You should consider the Asus RT-AC86U and flash with Merlin firmware. The router has hardware acceleration and an 1800MHz processor. The built in vpn client makes it real simple to add TG or other OpenVPN service, especially with Merlin FW which has numerous very useful tweaks over Asus stock FW. I used Asus 68U and 88U prior and the 86U increases vpn speeds more than 50%. It's an awesome router for handling vpn. Has LAN-IPTV built in as well.

    I am a new user of TorGuard VPN and I was wondering what are the main differences between the port/auth settings, aka what are the differences between choosing either/or of the following: 443 (SHA1) 80 (SHA1) 995 (SHA1) 1912 (SHA256) 1195 (SHA256) 1215 (SHA512) 389 (SHA512) 1914 1212 (SHA256) 4443 (SHA256) | Stealth

    Welcome to TorGuard 1) OpenVPN is version 2.3, OpenVPN 2.4 is the newest version of OpenVPN and this version we recommend you use, OpenVPN 2.3 will be removed in a future release. 2) sTunnel is handy in locations where you might be blocked, Uni, public wifi hotspots, work, library etc it is also very useful in countries such as China and Iran, it can help speed up TCP based connections too. 3) Depends if you are in a highly restrictive country, network, you may just want to speedup TCP based connections or just want that extra layer of protection. 4) It helps obfuscate the OpenVPN signature - it won't hide the location of an IP address that you connect to. 5) If they block IP addresses directly or ASN numbers for the provider then the only way around such blocks are to find an IP that is not blocked, stealth wotn help you with website blocks unless that block is done via DPI etc. Regards

    I don't have much knowledge on the subject and need someone to explain certain aspects to me. I have done some research but online research isn't very friendly to someone who has limited knowledge on the subject in the first place. This thread could also be a future reference to others who use the VPN but are not very informed on what certain aspects are. - What's the different between OpenVPN and OpenVPN V2.4? -What's the different between enabling STunnel and not enabling it on the Torguard Client? -Should I be using STunnel? -Does stealth actually hide what VPN server i'm connecting to (NY, LA, Etc.), or does it only disguise my traffic to look like normal traffic from said server? -Is there any way around websites which specifically block the use of VPN's or proxies? Stealth connections don't seem to work all the time, at least for me.

    Customer support is really good at fixing speed issues. They usually suggest doing the following when using the TORguard app Please click more Settings-> Network on the VPN app Uncheck the block outside DNS boxLocate three drop downs under the " use these nameservers" section Choose Google under all three of them on by oneClick Save and restart App firstTry to ConnectPlease connect with tunnel type as Open Connect and Protocol as UDP this time. I recently changed ISP providers to also get 100/10 service and the same setting above were not working for me. I kept google as the name servers and went back to tunneltype = OPENVPN, protocol UDP, port 1195(SHA 256) Ciper AES-256-CBC The servers closest to me I was getting about 60-70 Mbps, if you in USA, the Chicago server seems to connect fastest for me I now get 108/11 when connected to torguard. Before I made changes my downloads would not get pass 20. Try the first suggestion as this is what Torguard support usually recommends.

    As we use TLS Auth using SHA1 via openvpn is fine - port 443 is a good port to use. Direct IP bypass DNS lookups on our hostnames, this helps if our hostnames are DNS blocked in the network you are connecting through. Our VPN DNS should be faster but i would test those for yourself. Regards

    Hello, If you are using the latest TG Client v0.3.71 released on the 3rd i would suggest going to more settings >> network >> enable OpenVPN 2.4, this will enable you to choose GCM based ciphers which are faster than CBC based ciphers. I would also suggest set your DNS to the below settings if possible since you have Direct IP checked: None None VPN DNS It's always best to use our internal endpoint DNS when possible - sometimes when you change your DNS its also a good idea to flush your DNS cache to prevent any issues. Ideally, its best to have block outside DNS checked, did you have issues when enabling this option? Regards

    Not bad at all for simply connecting but as you see, even connecting to torguard brings issues if your ISP is spying on you. This is very good example of something, where other tests show you that everyhing is ok but this test clearly shows you that your ISP is hijacking DNS. You need to have Java installed on your pc to run these tests, it does not work in chrome, but on firefox it does even if using combination of proxifier and foxyproxy (because java tool does all the job, not the browser itself) TEST NOW WITH ANALYZR Good article in german explaining it a little bit and includes the test itself. Send your tests to TorGuard support, they will help you very fast with any leaks, problems or even unintentionally missconfigured device like to open ports which you do not want at all opened. Here is one example (it provides a link which you can send to torguard support if your tests show any issues): More test results (example):

    Please try flush your DNS cache and reboot - then retest, if you still have problems go to more settings >> network tab >> set a new DNS option for when the VPN is "connected". Then connect and retest. Regards
