Our Usenet Backend has support for reading text newsgroups now, again.
We have "thecubenet.com" block accs connected for textnews reading.
If you encounter any bugs with newsreading clients: please report!
"Pan": is already known to fail, still don't know why. It can't read our xover yet...
It's not an error: we gave our block accounts 10 TB while testing the new system. have fun!
Fixed another bug in our nntp-cache that broke some downloads.
Cache is empty now. DB reseted and Block-Accs filled up!
Please retry your failed downloads and thanks for your reports!

Hop into Chat and post your link, say it's broken and we'll check!
Database is connected. If you see anything strange please report it.
Found a rare bug today which (partly) broke some downloads, please retry failed downloads.
Bugs Reason: messageids with % had been sent as "formated strings" but there was nothing to format and golang added "%_MISSING" to it...
Usenet test is still running. We'll test database connection tonight.
You may see some wrong numbers while updating. Just ignore them.
We'll reset the database when things run smoothly and fillup all block accounts.
Do you notice any difference between NL10,NL11,NL12 (the 10Gs @Worldstream) versus NL20 (1G @Leaseweb)?
Sure Leaseweb is only 1G but Worldstream partly sucks to some german providers? T-Kom?
Would like to know if Leaseweb is doing anything better.
Got new Finland Servers (FI1 + FI2) with new AMD Ryzen 5 PRO 3400G CPUs.
Setup is running. Please wait.
The new FI1 Server has no "fragment" value and openvpn should work with iPhones.
The old FI1 keeps running for 7 days.
We're testing 10G interface @Hetzner DC for internal usage (works within hetzner DC) only.
Connect your server to: nntp-hz.ovpn.to and hit'em hard!
Usenet Test ist still live and running.
Didn't hear anything bad... good sign? :D
Counters will be back next week, maybe.
We had to reset some nntp usernames as they did not match up with our new naming convention.
Login > Usenet and hit "create" button. ´
And it's running and running and running. Zero negative reports yet. You have one?
Connection and Traffic Counters will be back soon.
Block Accounts can leech without limits at the moment!
We'll post a timeframe when things get back to normal.
Test continues as is for the next few days!
All Users with 4 connections should have 8 now.
We'll see if we can keep it like that!
Test is running! Waiting for a crash but didn't happen yet! :D
Test is still running and will continue today till evening :)
Looks good from here!
Please, if you got any errors (others than 1-2min downtime for short updates): TELL US!
Too silent for a live test or it's running really good! :D

Go here to "Add Funds and select "Mastercard Token".
Enter your Token and wait! :)
Canadian Server is dead. Reseller disappeared...
First of all: this is not a 1st april joke.
We decided not to joke people with anything silly this year.
We're doing fine while in lock down mode and we hope you're too!
Keep your heads up!
We're stíll alive and doing well! Not infected, but affected somehow. Liberty is gone.
Hard lock down rules applied. We're isolated and not allowed to leave the house.
Friday 13 is a bad day for a news.
Corona Virus has reached our location, it's only a few miles away.
We took precautions and we're prepared. Food, Water, Gas, ... Hope you're too!
Follow the basic rules: wash your hands, don't shake hands and keep a good distance to other people!
There is nothing else we can do but wait... for the apokalypse? We hope not!
Service will keep going as usual! As long as we can. We'll update you if anything crazy happens.
That's by today very speculative, but our preparedness includes the possibility of shutting down the service temporarily if or while important people may be hospitalized...
By today nobody is infected yet, but schools closed, events canceled, shop shelfs running empty and who knows where it will take us.
New dedicated Server in NL Amsterdam with 1 Gbps and Xeon E5-1620 v3 CPU(Leaseweb DC).
Why? Some say their route to Leaseweb was better than to Worldstream (NL10-12)
Finland Server is delayed, CPU is not in stock...
Placed order for new dedicated Server in Finland with 1 Gbps unmetered and AMD Ryzen 5 2400G CPU
Server in Russian Datacenter is down for unknown reason...
Happy New Year!
We inform you that on January 23, 2020, work will be done on the infrastructure of the data center 04:00 EST (UTC-05: 00) - 08:00 EST (UTC-05: 00)
During this period of time, your server -US1- may be unavailable for up to 4 hours.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
Latest news about some hacked VPN providers and bad hosting providers, specially NordVPN and their hoster 'Creanova'.
We bought a server in 2013 from Creanova / Finland and got generic logins which they obviously used for every setup at this time.
We got this info from Perfect Privacy and made a test buy to verify. This is the server delivery mail from 2013.
As you can imagine, we didn't use them...
We're in contact with all our providers to check any possible enabled remote administration access like ip-kvm, idrac, ...
But as far as i can tell, any harm via 'Remote Administration Access' / 'RAA' shouldn't be possible in our setup.
Why? 'RAA' gives you access to monitor and keyboard. You'll see linux login shell and we've set strong password for root and there are 0 user accounts with password.
One with access to 'RAA' could reboot the server, edit grub and launch any shell, but our system keeps binarys and configs on ramdisk which is lost after reboot.
And we'd notice that a server got rebooted, because we have to initiate the (re-)setup process manually.
But we will check all server for any possible RAA!
Payments with cash4web are delayed (waiting time is 1-2 weeks or more).
You'll get free-time as long as we need to book your money into your account.
Don't panic and enjoy your free! time while waiting... Funds are still on your card until we book it.
New servers in NL. Please update your configs and switch to NL10, NL11, NL12 :)
Old NL1-9 will expire soon. We had some of them since 2013 and 2015.
We would like to notify you about the following mandatory maintenance operation to be done in our Romania data center on 16th of August 2019 starting at 7.00 AM GMT+4.
During this operation, we will be replacing one of the core routers. Please note that we will do our best to keep the downtime to the minimum,
however your services may experience traffic re-routing or loss of connectivity of up to 2 hours.
We will do our best to decrease the downtime by gracefully re-routing traffic.
RU Server got IPV6!
Usenet got an update yesterday. Please report errors or problems you see!
4 connections should peak you to 25 MByte/s (~200 Mbit) or more now! :)
You can ask for more connections (up to 12 total) if you reach 25 Mbyte with 4 conns!
Yes this RAID controller does not have any backup battery.
Don't need one, we have battery UPS that will shutdown the server before the UPS battery dies ;)
Some people asked about the case and how can you connect 14 drives to a mainboard with only 6 sata???
+ Fractal Design R5 Case
+ Icy Dock ExpressCage: 6x 2.5" into 1x 5.25"
+ Silverstone SST-ECS04 + Mini-SAS OCR Cables
A vouch for this cheap but good controller, running them for almost 3 years now.
And another common question: where do you host your website server?
Coinpayments.net asks for "KYC" ID verification in 30 days.
We will drop them. If you have any alt coins you want to use here, use it now.
We won't run our own wallets for every shit coin!
Website was hit by an unplanned (but graceful) shutdown and was down for some minutes.
Always doublecheck before hitting the power button on the wrong server! :D
Testing some stuff tonight and maybe disconnect site for some minutes.
Upgrade completed and everything is up again.
We'll start the upgrade now, downtimes will occur sooner or later without prior warning.
Parts of our services (website, jabber, anomail, admin IRC) will be offline for some hours.
Chat / irc.ovpn.to:6697 (SSL) should be online.
Our Website Backend needs some dust cleaning and hardware upgrades: fresh thermal paste, new hdd/ssd, remove hot intel (75°C+) nvme disk and add new raid controllers here and there.
Don't panic when website is unavailable some hours over the weekend.
First downtime(s) should occur this evening. Most of it should be done quickly but you know Murphy!
Since we got so many requests about wireguard: we'll look into it.
Wireguard devevelopers say:
"WireGuard is not yet complete. You should not rely on this code.It has not undergone proper degrees of security auditing and the protocol is still subject to change. We’re working toward a stable 1.0 release, but that time has not yet come."
We won't deploy "unstable" code to our clients and we'll give you an update if we have more information ready.
We have internal tests running and we'll start a beta test soon. Contact support if you want to participate!
If you got an error on adding cash4webs please retry or join Chat!
Please update your Stunnel config: download CAfile and put into stunnel.conf folder
It's raining again! Power is stable (at the moment) and if you can read this message website is still online :D
Upgrade of usenet access is almost complete.
Testing and analyzing different configurations every 1-2 days now for a week or more to get best performance and balance.
On good days or (new) files you should easily reach 100 Mbps or more with only 4 connections.
Speed can vary if files are not found on our primary providers. System does a really hard job searching for your articles.
Searching articles is slow because we search every article on 25 (or more, or less if found anywhere) different peers in NL, DE and US.
Set your "Article Retries" (nzbget) to 1 or you may need up to 3 times more time to search for failed articles.
When you download with ".nzb" files: every line with a "message-id" is 1 article.
Our difference to other usenet providers: you do 1 request but we do 25+ to our peers.
oVPN Users will get best results with internal DNS: 172.16.32.1 (or static hosts-file entry "172.16.32.1 nntp.ovpn.to")
Any external DNS will send you over our public gateways which adds one more step into the chain.
Our internal DNS will send you directly from your connected oVPN server to our nntp endpoints!
SSH Users should use local forwarded port "-L 1563:172.16.32.1:1563" and add a entry to hosts-file: "127.0.0.1 nntp.ovpn.to" to prevent SSL certificate warnings.
If you use our usenet without SSH or VPN: you can use any oVPN.to Server IP as a static hosts-file entry for "nntp.ovpn.to".
Our DNS always delivers our servers as front off-loaders for "public" access (without VPN or SSH).
You can create a static hosts-file entry if you prefer to use one specific server always.
Many asked about "posting" and the answer is: It's done, when it's done!
Public IPv6 entrypoints are available via DNS AAAA now!
SSL is forced to TLS v1.2 and older sabnzbd versions stopped working. Upgrade to latest sabnzbd version!
You really read to the end?! Cheers!
Please let us know when you notice anything worse... or better!
++ Yes you can share (y)our usenet access (connections and your available traffic) with your friends.
++ We don't log fucking IPs and public users (without VPN or SSH) are always "proxied" (with SSL end2end) too.
Nice day and doesn't look like we'll get more rain and power is stable.
Usenet was buggy today but should be back up now!
If you get errors from usenet, connections closed or "502" messages: please join chat and report asap!
We're live testing a great update! Thanks for your patience!
All active usenet users got reloaded with 2 TB of usenet traffic!
Please test and report any issues :)
We got some rain (maybe the next 2-4 days). First good one this year!
Power is failing constantly (only for few seconds at the moment) and batteries are working hard to keep everything (Website, Backend and IRC) up! :D
Our Website could have some downtimes, so don't panic if the site becomes unavailable for some hours because uplinks lost power...
Servers BG1 to BG4 got IPv6 working again. BG5 + BG6 will follow!
Website was unavailable for some hours: "fastd" connection to/from backend was frozen.
You may notice more (shorter) interruptions on the website while testing new configuration later today.
We need your bandwidth feedback for servers BG5 + BG6.
Please connect with oVPN to BG5 + BG6 and run speedtest.net (please select a "host.ag" speedtest server and any other random server to test)
Join WebIRC https://webirc.ovpn.to into channel #help and leave a message with your speedtest.net result!
Ukraine Server will not appear!
Datacenter tried to scam us with a delivered "KVM" processor! Don't order dedicated servers at deltahost.com or you (may) get a virtual server because "hardware was not available"!
Placed orders for Dedicated Gbit Servers in Ukraine and Romania.
New Bulgaria Dedicated Gbit Servers are online.
We'll shutdown the old BG 100M machines on Mar 15, 2019. ? You like 'em?

You can protect your oVPN.to account with gAuth / OTP.
Many of our users use it fine but some lost their phones and did not backup the OTP secret key.
Always backup your OTP secret key to another location, not only in your phone...

There is no way for us to restore your account, because this would compromise the idea of protecting your account and email-boxes.
You can login with your OTP secret key and without your phone if you backuped your secret key: https://vcp.ovpn.to/otp/.

Some people can't calculate :D Our Bitcoin "Cash-In Rate" at 3750€/BTC is not a bug!
You pay "in bitcoin" here (you don't buy them here) and you'll get a balance for your coins.
If our rate is higher than the market: you safe money!
Why? Because you'd get 3750 € per every spent bitcoin here!
But buying a bitcoin costs you only 3200 € and you safe about 18%!
Note: You don't need to spend a full bitcoin, a fraction is fine ;)
We'll upgrade Bulgaria Servers to Gbps and new IPv4 + IPv6. Orders are placed.

We'll upgrade all remaining Servers to openVPN 2.4 on Sunday 22, Jan 2017 @ 23:00 / 02:00 UTC. - Update completed -
Release oVPN.to Client for Windows: 0.8.5
oVPN.to Client for Windows 0.8.4 fails to start with openVPN 2.4 because file 'openvpnserv2.exe' is NOT signed by openVPN developers!
This is not a bug: but security feature! We have hardcoded hashs and signature checks!
Uninstall 2.4 and delete all files in 'C:\Program Files\OpenVPN\bin\' manually, let our Client install 2.3.14-I601 and wait...
Temporary workaround to start Client with 2.4: delete the file 'bin\openvpnserv2.exe' or remove 'openVPN service' on setup.
We'll release an Update soon!
Happy New Year 2017!
Updated BG4, CH4, HU4, LT4, MD8, NL4, NL9 to openVPN 2.4.0!
AES-256-GCM, AES-192-GCM, AES-128-GCM, AES-256-CBC, AES-192-CBC, AES-128-CBC, CAMELLIA-256-CBC, CAMELLIA-128-CBC
GCM ciphers only work with openVPN 2.4 but you can select between AES-XXX-CBC and CAMELLIA-XXX-CBC ciphers with openVPN 2.3 on 2.4 servers.
Example: ' ... --cipher AES-128-CBC --ncp-disable'
We'll update BG4, CH4, HU4, LT4, MD8, NL4, NL9 to openVPN 2.4.0 tonight.
Join our IRC / Chat into channel #help and wait for instructions!
DE4 IPv4 blocked by "netscans" and FR1 blocked by DoS...
We'll cancel contracts with awesomerdp.com (DE4 + FR1 + FR2) due to bad abuse handling.

If any new release of openVPN (2.3.12-I602 or 2.3.13) comes out, we and you have to update 'oVPN Client' first!
