We’re undergoing some major revamps in our service which would require a global configuration change.
We started out as a VPN provider whose main aim was to bypass traffic shaping and with a strong emphasis on speed. This worked out well for our initial bunch of customers but we have recognized a growing need for additional security. This is especially so as government and ISPs have begun eroding into our privacy and monitoring connections. Furthermore, the added overhead data is minimal at about 5%.
We also conducted a survey in which 72% of users wanted encryption implemented on the Proxied servers.
We intend to have these changes rolled out on Christmas day 25th September 2011 Sunday 0:00 GMT+8.
To implement these two steps requires a global configuration change. For those of you on BolehVPN-GUI, this should be simple and a simple hit of Update Configuration would work. For those of you on other installations, would need a download a new set of configuration files and an additional key.
We’ll post a detailed link to install at our blog when we implement the change.
DD-WRT router support will also be implemented in our new configuration changes and an updated guide will be posted. This has been tricky to do previously since there are so many versions of DD-WRT and because of our multiple configuration setup.
We’re conducting other upgrades to our backend with a website revamp and an ordering process revamp to improve the user experience. We also intend to fully support Paypal subscriptions so that users do not need to manually renew their subscriptions every month. A support ticketing system is also in the works.
We’re also implementing a whole slew of other minor changes based on user feedback and a full list of implemented features will be posted once we have finalized them.
Once again, thank you for your understanding and continued support of BolehVPN!
