Today’s Mainland China VPN Flip Test will test the use of ExpressVPN in Window 10. The test will be conducted using the officially recommended “Auto+4 servers” and IKEv2 protocols. Since ExpressVPN’s app direct connection has been good, I rarely connect manually, but I want you to know that it supports manual configuration of the connection. Also, since the test account I purchased is expiring in 40 days, did you find this test helpful or informative. Please leave a comment and give me a feedback, so that I can know if I need to renew my account for such a test. Finally, if you find this article useful, please follow me on Twitter to be notified of updates. Thanks!
Note: There will be a major firewall upgrade blocking operation at the end of September – beginning of October, so be aware!
Barry’s nag: I’ve been hoping to convey a message to my readers that the firewall will be around for the foreseeable future; with it, using any VPN or other tool in China is a dynamic process and there’s no one-and-done solution. That’s why I keep updating the [Daily Test] section. The purpose of the test is to tell you the real usage of the changed VPN at the moment, whether it is available or not, and I will tell you so. In order to speed up the testing, I will be running only SpeedTest tests on it as it is only a reference for the speed test.

Summary: Today, I’ve tested the officially recommended method and the IKEv2 protocol in Windows 10 on a real-life wall connection in mainland China. My advice is to use the officially recommended method if Auto works smoothly. If this method is difficult to use or is particularly slow, then I recommend switching to IKEv2, a protocol that focuses on servers in the U.S., with Canada, Singapore, Japan and the U.K. as secondary connections.
ExpressVPN Win10 Version: 7.12.2 (4); Protocol: Auto/IKEv2
