Last update: january 2020

Advanced functionality and quick setup are available in the application.

Linux operating systems are very popular among PC users. Therefore, we implemented the work of our VPN on these operating systems.

Some users may need to setup a pptp VPN connection on their computer. For our service this is not a problem since we support this technology. The setup is very simple and does not require the download of additional applications.

Before the start of connection setup, read the information about your connection. Go to the "Server Locations" page, and copy the Hostname of the server you need.

To setup the pptp VPN connection on your computer, please follow the instructions below.

1. Please, open the Unity panel on your OS. Enter the word "settings" in the search and open "System settings"
