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…
March 17, 2021 – ExpressVPN has been performing very well lately, with all users able to connect quickly with its Automatic, IKEv2, and Lightway protocols for direct App connections in Windows, Mac, iOS/iPhone/iPad, and Android. Today’s test task is to test the official recommended “Auto+6 servers” on three devices, Mac/Win10/iPhone, mainly to let readers know the speed of these three devices after successful connection. In Mac and Win10, “YouTube Connection Speed”, “SpeedTest”, “Netflix Fast” will be used to test. In iPhone, “SpeedTest”, “SpeedTest Video” and “Netflix Fast” will be used for speed testing. We hope that this test will provide some reference for you in your use.
March 13, 2021, usually I will Windows and Mac testing will be more frequent, because I usually have to generally finish my work and generally do testing. I would be more comfortable doing tests in the computer, today is the weekend, not much on hand, I would like to do a test on IOS/iPhone. In fact, I also a kind of wall in the Phone through ExpressVPN, just are using more fixed those few servers, so can not overall understanding of its actual situation. Today I will be in the iPhone through the Automatic and IKEv2 protocol options for random server testing, and please note that the current IOS version does not support the Lightway protocol, if you need to try the function to apply for its Bate version can, the method can refer to this article “how to get EXPRESSVPN BATE version”, if you have any questions or use experience, you can leave a message to share (the message is anonymous)…
March 10, 2021, today will be in the Windows 10 device on the ExpressVPN connection and speed test in mainland China. The two Chinese sessions since the beginning of the block VPN, wall tools so far, ExpressVPN is the only VPN in my test VPN did not appear larger fluctuations. from the previous test and the usual use of their own, its server connection time has increased, some server speed has decreased, but for mainland users can be through Auto, IKEv2, the Lightway three connection options, so the choice of servers is still very generous, in this point really want to give ExpressVPN a compliment. The three protocols will still be tested on a sample basis, each protocol will be randomly selected 5-10 servers VPN test.
March 7, 2021, today is the third day of China’s two sessions, this test I want to test the speed of YouTube, SpeedTest, Netflix Fast in my Macbook using the officially recommended “Auto + 6 servers”, of course, I will also I will also use SpeedTest for testing. Also, you should know that ExpressVPN can currently connect via Auto, IKEv2, Lightway-UDP, and Lightway-TCP (Bate version). Due to the large number of servers required for cross-testing multiple protocols, I cannot test them all at once, but I will use the principle of sequential cross-testing to test the connection of various protocols and devices for mainland China.
March 4, 2021, this test is a test of the three protocols of ExpressVPN (Auto, IKEv2, Lightway) in Windows 10 devices, each connection protocol tested in about 5-10 servers, the servers tested by different connection protocols will avoid duplication. As you know, tomorrow is the two sessions, the current firewall blockade has been a bit of a hint, I will try to take some time to do the test, I hope to do a warning for everyone. I will also try to find some solutions and let you know if I find any VPNs that I can’t connect to.
On February 5, 2021, a VPN China test will be conducted on Windows 10 for the three protocol options of ExpressVPN (Automatic, IKEv2, and Lightway). servers for testing. Since ExpressVPN’s big update on January 18, official news from the official version of Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android already support Lightway, while the official version of Lightway for IOS is under development. We hope that this includes three protocols for testing, which can provide reference for more users in mainland China to use and choose.
