Your pings via Hamachi?
« on: July 31, 2019, 04:28:09 PM »
Had to move my VPN back to Hamachi (from self-served OpenVPN) coz residential Fibr is now under CGNAT.

Man, feels like the bad old days lol. My ping is fluctuating from 300-400ms, admittedly this is from Globe on the mobile connection.

Anyone else tried Hamachi recently? Thinking about setting rolling my own OpenVPN router on AWS or Google Cloud if its really this bad. IIRC Google should have servers in HK, SG, TW and JP. AWS has in HK, SG, JP.

yeah, ping is ~350ms on my end as well, from Globe (office) to my CGNAT'ed Fibr
zerotier-one is a bit better, at ~150ms (same box)
my previous setup is my Home Fibr is configured as openvpn-server, and IIRC it's less than 50ms (same box)
I have a reverse vpn (office-PLDT has an openvpn server, and my CGNAT'ed Fiber is connected), and it's less than 10ms


was actually thinking of getting those BuyVM box -- only ~$40 per year, with 5TB of monthly bandwidth and install openvpn to connect all my devices (including cellphones), but so far zerotier-one is quite OK (even on android)

Tried this at work using PLDT business DSL. Looks like Hamachi will automatically do a direct connect if at least one of the computers has a real IP address. Pings down to 50-60ms.

It's really when the tunnel is relayed that pings suffer, and it seems like 300-400ms is as good as it gets.
