  1. Timed Rotation through servers

    Add a feature to allow users to build a list of servers they would like VyperVpn to rotate through. Have a radio button for sequential or random rotation, and field to specify time duration between server changes.

    The user would build a list a list of preferred servers, and with the SERVER ROTATION option enabled, VyperVPN would automatically change servers every 30 minutes or whatever interval the user specifies. The rotation could be sequential through the user list (top to bottom) or random, as specified by the user.

    You could add fields for automatic server selection from the list based…

  2. Switch servers from system tray while connected

    Currently I can connect to any of my favorite servers by either right clicking the mini icon tray, or by clicking the "location" icon in the main application window, but it would be great to be able to do this also while connected.

    So if I'm already connected to a VPN I could select another one and it would do the disconnection and connection automatically. I don't know if this is a trivial request, it would save a few clicks, and I think keeping the "location" icon next to the connect/disconnect button seems logical instead of hiding it after being…

  3. Being Able To Switch Between Servers Without Deconnexion

    Being Able To Switch Between Servers Without Deconnexion With one Click:

    While being connected to a server,
    I want to switch to another server. But have to deconnect first.

    Instead of that, would be really great if when I switch to another server, I stay connected to the former one.
    Then, once I am connected to the new server, only then the former connexion can be killed.

    That way, I stay connected all along, without interruption, just changed server location.

    That is useful to use when downloading files at for exemple, sppedyshare or file sharing sites like that who restrict…

  4. Start app minimized to tray on Windows start

    The earlier program version minimised to tray when starting automatically on Windows start. The latest version has taken away that feature and the program starts maximised on the desktop now. That may be great for some but I like to control how auto-start programs behave, ie whether they are maximised or minimised. It would be good if a "Minimise to tray" tickbox option existed in General Options which is available when you select "Launch VprVPN on log in".

  7. Currently, the windows for VyperVPN use Alpha Blending to draw which makes them invisible to VNC connections

    Currently, it appears that the windows for VyperVPN use Alpha Blending to draw their windows, although I see no benefit from it. However, alpha blended windows will disappear when viewed using VNC if the VNC option to hide the home desktop is set to on (which is the default for security.) What this means is that when I remotely log into my Windows 7 machine using VNC, the local screen goes black, and the VyperVPN window AND the drop down window from the task bar are not visible on the VNC window. I cannot tell the status of the connection…

  8. TAP windows driver selection

    New vyprvpn setup forces install tap windows driver with goldenfrog signature but it's an older version of openvpn's and has heartbleed vulnerability.so instead of forcing anything,at least make it selectable,so we can skip it and install a tab windows driver version we want.

    VyprVPN 2.9.6 will introduce user-selectable OpenVPN adapters, with the default being the standard OpenVPN TAP adapter. The other option is the VyprVPN TAP adapter, which could be used in cases where the standard OpenVPN TAP adapter fails (due to conflicts, etc).

    This is already available in the Advanced tab of the 2.9.6.7169 beta version and it will be out in production very soon.

    While the driver itself is not selectable, the adapter is and both adapters will use the most up-to-date, secure drivers for OpenVPN.

  9. Add a button "change ip address"

    instead of press disconnect and reconnect again.
    why not add a button below it saying "change ip address"
    which allows user to change the ip address in the same location

  11. System.ServiceModel.Channels.ServiceChannel cannot communicate

    When I start VyprVPN for Windows on a x64 system (7 AND 8.1) with preset OpenVPN 256 bit encryption and with the kill switch on I always get this error:

    "System.ServiceModel.Channels.ServiceChannel cannot communicate"

    Looks like the kill switch is the problem. Fix this, it's not rocket science.

  12. Hide Taskbar Tab When Minimized

    I upgraded to VyprVPN v2.3.3.2452 and I see that while running in Windows 7, the tab in the taskbar stays visible. I would perfer to not have this tab visible in order to save space. Can you provide an option for "hide taskbar tab when minimized" or something similar?

  13. dropbox

    I just changed to VYPRVPN PRO, before I worked with Astrill. Since I live in China, VPN is a welcome tool for foreigners.

    VYPRVPN doesn't support my dropbox account. I'm depended on this for my business. What can I do to activiate the dropbox in China, or is VYPRVPN not capable to do this?

  14. Auto start applications on connect and auto-close on connection lost

    Add a list of software to start on connection success and to (force) close when losing connection.
    I'm using "VPN Lifeguard" to do this, but it will be better if integrated inside your application.
    Very usefull when using a software that should not run outside the VPN.

    We have implemented a similar feature, Kill Switch, in our VyprVPN Windows 2.5 release which allows the user to choose to not have internet access when the computer is not connected to VPN. We are currently working on the proof of concept for per-app VPN. I hope this answers your questions!

  15. Keep favorites after VyprVPN update

    Keep the location favorites after a VyprVPN update.

  16. Desktop warning

    A window display on the desktop when Vypr disconnects. This would let a user know when they have been away from their system that they need to reconnect before going online.

  17. Make provisions for a WiFi printer on VPN

    As currently configured, there is no way to operate a WiFi printer if the VPN is engaged. Some VPN clients apparently have a kind of "exception" option that allows for the operation of a wireless printer on LAN without having the signal scrambled by the VPN.

  20. Switch to destination server programatically

    Need some sort of automation to switch to destination server without manual clicking. May be you can add functionality to your VyprVPN.exe to take a param that would specify a server to which a VPN connection is made (you can add optiona user ID and pwd). Assuming VyprVPN app is running (and a user is logged-in), when VyprVPN.exe -s us2.vpn.goldenfrog.com is launched it would do the same as manual selection of the server from the list in GUI - just establish connection to specified destination.
