Allow connection to "fastest server" within a specific region
Please see my forum posting on this same topic located at http://forum.goldenfrog.com/t/connect-to-fastest-server-within-a-specific-region/1057/2
Currently VyprVPN has the capability to connect to the "fastest server", which is an excellent feature.
However, there are times when the "fastest" (closest) server is not the best one for me to use.
Example: I am abroad, (outside the U.S.), and I need to connect to a server within the U.S. - somewhere - though it may not really matter where. (My e-mail clients depends on this to successfully send mail.)
As it is now, I select a particular server, (in my case, NY), and automatically connect to it at Windows startup.
What I would like to do is to connect to whatever server is the fastest server within a particular region - be it the U.S., Europe, Australia, etc. This would have certain particular advantages:
- If my "usual" server, (NY for example), goes down, has issues, or is swamped with connections, my VyprVPN would automagically select another - better - server to connect to.
- If a new server is added to the region I selected, it would automagically become part of the server pool I can use to connect.
- If the server rotation feature becomes available - and is integrated with this feature - I would have the potential for a different server location each login - which could be a significant advantage if you want to avoid being geo-location tracked.
Thanks again for a wonderful product!
Please implement this. At the moment I cannot allow the app to automatically connect because it chooses the fastest server from any location which, for me, is not practical as I require a server in a specific region.
Fastest server from favorites by default would work too.
Fastest server in favorite is also a potential option, but my *original* request still stands.
Fastest server from our list of favorites may even be easier to implement. Please do this!
Good idea, but may be not limited to a location. Could be better if we have "fastest server in favorite", so we can add all servers we need.
