Several customers have asked for maximum encryption servers. While not necessary for everyday use as the standard 128 bit encryption is quite safe, we are now providing a 256 bit AES encrypted option for those who have asked.
This is state-of-the-art, maximum encryption as used by governments and major corporations for top secret work. There is no extra charge to use the 256 bit AES encrypted servers. Just add the configuration file as shown below and it will show up as an option when you log in.
If you are looking for maximum speed, please use the regular servers. There is extra overhead in the higher encryption and these servers, while theoretically more secure, will be slower.
The servers are available in both TCP and UDP. Use the UDP server as your first choice, it will be the fastest option. Use TCP in places where UDP is blocked on your network.
