  1. timed connection refresh

    Add in an option to allow the app to disconnect and reconnect after a certain length of time. so for instance the server your currently connected to may not be the fastest server any more. HMA has this option and its very usefull for keeping the connection at its fastest.

  2. Kill Switch for Non-VyprVPN traffic

    Often it would be handy to kill , or perhaps throttle specific traffic with or without VPN for various reasons. Suppose I'm sharing my internet connection or in parallel with limited bandwidth, it would be very useful to just temporarily click and limit or stop any IP traffic. Since you already have a GUI running, it makes sense to add this to your app. If not, allow this to be scriptable so this could be done by other apps

  3. ping and change to another server while protected by VPN

    I would like to ping all available servers while connected to VyprVPN and change my current server without exposing my IP. Currently, I have to disconnect from Vypr before I can ping the available servers. This requires me to close my newsreader and other internet programs while pinging & changing servers. I would like to see the available ping times and change servers without having to close all of my apps or risk exposing my IP address.

  6. VPN SSL/TLS

    Hello there. To complete VyprVPN protocols available and to enhance security, it would be interesting to add the VPN SSL/TLS protocol that provides better protection than OpenVPN. When do you think?

  7. In VyprVPN, provide a retry option to the installer

    Whenever I attempt to install an upgrade when notified by the Windows app, it fails because my firewall blocks the temp install file's internet access until I approve it in a dialog box. The problem is that the installer does not provide a 'retry' option -- as soon as the firewall blocks it, the installer reports failure and must be closed. Problem is, by that point it has uninstalled the TAP service, so I cannot restart VyprVPN and must go to the website, log in, download, etc.

    It's not a major problem, but it would make the upgrade process smoother…

  8. Reboot connection if ping timeout

    Sometimes, i lost connection but the client doesn't disconnect.
    It can be good if the client detect when ping timeout and reboot the connection.

  9. transfer graph of the incoming and outcoming $$

    Hi
    I really like the service you provide but as they say "Nothing is perfect" so I noticed a thing that would be better to have in the program you provide with your service.

    other than the speed graph in the program , it would be better to have another graph that be in coming and out coming graph, that collect all the transfer of the internet.

    thank you

  11. Change computer time and date to sever location upon connection

    VPN blocking generally works however in some instances it's rejected due to the date and time setting on my computer not agreeing to the host site.

    Suggestion, incorporate an option to change the time date during the login process to the servers locations. Then when you disconnect reset the computers time and date to the original settings. This will greatly improve the international roaming experience.

  12. Graphical bandwidth indication on mini tray icon

    I am still using netpersec (2001) as a visual bandwidth indicator. VyprVPN has something similar but only when the app is in screen mode. However, it would be cool to see the sent/received bandwith as a visual indicator on the mini tray icon. Hovering over the icon would then give the bandwidth in number (average sampled over 5 seconds or so) and the IP address of the connected server.

    Could you provide some clarification on how you would want this feature to work, ideally?

    OpenVPN and Chameleon allow for a user-selectable UDP port or random UDP port within specified ranges. Using the “Automatic” option, as opposed to specifying a port number, would allow the app to try and make a connection that was not blocked by the local firewall.

  14. Select Specific LAN Interface

    I want to use a separate LAN (Ethernet Port) connecting to a unique WAN service for VPN traffic. Is there a way you could add this feature to your VYPRVPN client - allowing me to configure the VPN client to connect across a specified LAN interface and always reconnect using that and only that interface.

    This way I can segregate my VPN traffic from my routine internet activity.

  16. Windows Update with Admin Elevation

    I use VyprVPN on Windows and like the automatic update feature (so it tells me that an update is available).

    However, as my normal user under windows does not have administrative privileges, the setup starts and fails afterwards because of this.

    Can you please change the update-installer to check for available admin-rights in the beginning and allow to change the user in the setup process (admin elevation)?

  18. Cache server IP addresses on load

    Have VyprVPN Cache the IP addresses it needs to connect a VPN tunnel and optionally use those instead of DNS based connections.

    Let me explain why.

    One or another of the development tools that I use cause a weird but persistent problem on my PCs. Whenever a new network connection appears on my PC for whatever reason, DNS resolution fails for approx. 5 minutes before starting to work again. The result being that when I need to turn off the VPN I cannot reconnect it again for over 5 minutes, and during that time my PC does not have internet…

  19. Improve performance of VyprVPN client / disable graph

    On my laptop, the VPN service takes very little resources, but the client always spikes to 20% CPU every 2 seconds on average, event when no VPN is connected.
    Is suspect the speed graph to be the culprit. It looks cool the first time we launch the tool, but is not very useful. The Windows Task Manager displays the same info, and doesn't take so much CPU. It would be great to have a cross icon to completely disable this gimmick.

  20. Keep favourites after updating VyprVPN for Windows

    After every update from 'VyprVPN for Windows' my location favourites are lost. Would be great if you keep them after updating.
