    hi guys the board seems to have become a ghost town lately in regards to vpn services.

    well i just stumbled upon this new service and its free and the sppeds are really good.the only draw back is its a pptp vpn as opposed to the more secure open vpn method.but it is based out of the netherlands like xerobank and they claim to keep no logs and say you can use the service for torrents or downloading without limits.so give it a try and tell me what you think.

    It is still hard to believe that someone provide service for free.

    Well for filesharing its better than nothing and as long as you dont giv themy our real name or email adress that would point to your real name.
    It can't harm to use it for sharing.

    just put up a VM with it and use it for sharing only.

    ad for online banking and such just the host without it.

    ItsHidden seems to be down at the moment.

    Can anyone else access it?

    well tsec either you are not typing in the right info or something because i can get access to vpn service everytime i try so i think maybe you should check you password and user name again and make sure you spelled the vpn server information correctly cause you are the only person i know who cant get access.

    I wonder what their business model is?

    Provocative question: Do we really need this type of infrastructure to facilitate the pervs exchanging their abusive content?

    The site is back up now.

    Yes, odd that such a service is provided for free

    I was referring to the website itself (not the VPN service) - but now it is back up.

    Well, I have created an account and have this running on a Vista Machine.

    Seems very fast. I tried Steve's de-anonymizer - it passed on a few and on the rest, the result was 'not detected'.

    I'll be waiting to see what Steve says about this one before I jump in. As far as "pervs", let's not throw everybody that uses these services into the criminal stereotype please. There are areas of the world where using these services is the only safe way to get information in and out for citizens. As far as offering this for free, take a look at a couple of pages there, specifically the account signup link and the setup guide. Both contain the words payment and purchase, so, I'm going to go ahead and say this won't be free for long.

    Oh, don't count on P2P just yet, per their front page, they don't yet support port forwarding.

    99% of users use it for P2P and thats good,
    the perverse copyright maniacs must be baned from the Internet so that the File sharing can flourish without legal threads!

    According to TorrentFreak the basic service will alsowa be free (and it does _not_ unclude port forwarding)
    The better service with port forwarding will cost 5€/month.

    99% of users that use it for P2P are "copyright maniacs" (I've never been called that before, I kinda like that). I guess I'll continue on with my Peerguardian, I need port-forwarding for my online games and such, and I'm sure not forking over my financial data to some upstart VPN that hasn't been under a proper microscope yet *waves at SteveTX*

    Kyle and Jonathan gave some comments on "free" vpn services: The ones proclaiming the loudest to make you completely anonymous are likely the ones to avoid, especially if they tell you they will do it for free. Kyle went on to point out that this is how intelligence and spying orgs work. People can't resist free, it blinds them to the considerations they would otherwise have. If the company offers it to you for free, you should assume they get something out of it. Maybe a lot more than you bargained for. Just look at what happened with UltraSurf, and nobody caught them for nearly a decade till we showed up! Don't trust the market place, it is not trustworthy, trust very few and seek large anonymity sets and great implementations: JAP + JonDoNym, KryptoHippie, Tor + JanusPA Hardware / JanusVM, or XeroBank. Those are your safe bets.

    Sometime is "free" only in first phase to attract more people and spread good words around. If "free" become used from many people then very oft it turn in small contribution.
    I'm wondering of this free service will turn once in business service.

    It is funny that port-80-hosting.com share their IP address (probably server) with more than 250 sites but itshidden.com not.

    Both sites are new and publicity is always needed. That;s why i suppose that free will turn in future into small contribution depend on number of people that use their service.

    And both name are same and phone number too.

    No, I meant thos people who are spying after the 99% of users that use p2p ans suing them for sharing, those shall be abnned from the internet.
    _not_ the filesharers.

    this way almosn no one would even need a anonymising service

    Re: It'sdubious.com

    Ok, i found itshidden.com from this thread so I feel inclined to report my findings here also.
    using google translate it was easy to follow the installation on mac osx.
    Speed loss was negligible as i have a slowish connection to begin with.

    All good until I noticed my network monitor constantly uploading packets when no internet related applications were open. Further inspection showed itshidden connecting to www01(dot)xxxxxxxx.com and db.xxxxxxxx.com. (please don't check that address out unless you want to go to a gay porn site)

    What information is being piped to these locations, I couldn't say.
    I would venture to say caution should be exercised if using this service.

    Comments anyone?

    Used to annoy me when people used tor or free vpn's for torrents. Still does actually. I don't use any security for torrents as all I get is threats from copyrighters, but it's not a criminal offence, and i'm not a big enough fish for them to bother suing civially. Nor are the bulk of you guys

    But you now have these countries getting close to implementing that '3 strikes and you lose your internet' law in relation to copyright infringments. Can't blame anyone in that situation .
