May 9, 2021 VPN Test Report: Today will be a test of ExpressVPN in iOS/iPhone, first went to check its latest version as 10.0.8, which currently supports the protocol options Automatic, UDP, TCP, IKEv2, now in the official version of both Windows and Mac have been introduced its latest protocols Lightway-UDP and Lightway-TCP. The description of UDP and TCP in IOS is a bit ambiguous, whether it is OpenVPN-UDP or Lightway-UDP, or both are combined, before the Lightway protocol was developed, IOS has extremely UDP and TCP. TCP, so I prefer that they refer to OpenVPN.
May 6, 2021 VPN Test Report, Today I will be testing 4 protocol options for ExpressVPN in my Macbook. Today’s first test of ExpressVPN’s Lightway-tcp, a connection protocol option that has been released in the official version for some time, but due to a bug, the protocol could not be selected for connection in either Windows or Mac. It has been confirmed that the problem has been fixed in the latest Windows and Mac versions. Since I was testing Mac-ExpressVPN today, I also wanted to test it and see how it was. I’m sure that the protocol is better than Lightway-tcp in terms of connection speed, but Lightway-tcp is much better than Lightway-tcp in terms of packet loss rate, so the choice depends on the user’s needs. But the premise is that I need to test if Lightway-tcp is available in mainland China.
April 28, 2021 test report, today will be tested in Windows10 devices on ExpressVPN’s three connection protocol options, respectively, the officially recommended Automatic, Lightway-UDP, IKEv2. According to the last round of testing has been about 2 weeks, although I did not test the report during the period, but I myself usually have been in the I have been using the Macbook, iPhone, and occasionally Windows 10 for connection or speed reduction problems. However, such a test report will help readers and myself to have a more intuitive and comprehensive understanding of its operation in mainland China. I hope such a test report will be helpful to everyone, if you have any questions, please leave a message to exchange (the message is anonymous).
April 13, 2021 – Due to an operational error yesterday testing ExpressVPN’s IKEv2 protocol in IOS, the test results were invalid. Today, in order to get a comprehensive view of ExpressVPN’s testing, a test will be conducted in Windows 10, Macbook, IOS/iPhone via the IKEv2 protocol, and to verify ExpressVPN’s “Auto+Official Recommended 6 Servers” In order to verify the current use of ExpressVPN’s “Auto+ Official Recommended 6 Servers”, this part of the test will be added to Win10, while other devices will only be tested with the IKEv2 protocol. We hope this test will be helpful for you to refer to the use of ExpressVPN.
Today, April 12, 2021, ExpressVPN will be tested in IOS/iPhone for APP direct VPN connection in mainland China. Based on previous tests and today’s normal use of the connection in Macbook and Windows 10, it was determined that ExpressVPN currently still works very smoothly in both devices at this time. We first checked the latest version in IOS and determined that the latest ExpressVPN IOS version is 10.0.5 (19359). At the same time, its current optional connection protocol options are still only Automatic, UDP, TCP, IKEv2, a bit disappointed in the IOS version is still to join the latest Lightway protocol. This test will test 5-10 servers for each of the three protocol options Automatic, UDP and IKEv2.
March 30, 2021, according to the last test report ExpressVPN currently has four available connection protocol options Automatic, Lightway-UDP, OpenVPN-UDP, and IKEv2. The difference between today’s Macbook and the last Window is that this test is primarily intended to understand the connection of each protocol, rather than a speed test of the same server under different protocols. Since this morning has been busy with their own work, so only now began to test, between the time is relatively tight on each protocol option for 5-8 servers. If you have any questions, please leave a message to communicate.
March 22, 2021 – Currently, in the latest ExpressVPN version 10.1.0(11) for Windows, the protocol options supported for connectivity are Automatic, Lightway-UDP, OpenVPN-UDP, OpenVPN-TCP, IKEv2, and L2TP/IPsec, of which L2TP/IPsec has a low security protocol and not many supported servers, so it will not be used to connect in non-essential situations. In this test, I will compare the speed of the first five protocols with the same servers in Windows 10 platform, hoping to find out the fastest connection protocol in mainland China, and test the connection of OpenVPN-UDP and OpenVPN-TCP by the way, because Automatic, Lightway-UDP, and IKEv2 are the three protocols I want to test. I often test these three protocols and know more about their connections. The test servers will be selected from the six officially recommended servers as the main body of the test…
