    hi guys
    from what i read on the forums, private net access, airvpn and bolehvpn all seem to have this issue.
    do you know of any that don't have it? (that complies with wilders standards for vpn providers)

    You can run into CAPTCHAs with any VPN. But I don't recall seeing it with iVPN or Insorg. However, pending developments in Russia, Insorg may not be around for much longer :(

    hi there mirimir
    thanks for the reply. but the problem is you encounter this issue too frequently with those three providers.

    Well, it's not yet as bad as with Tor ;)

    But yes, it's a pain :(

    The problem is that jerks draw attention to VPN exits, so they get blacklisted. Or maybe there are consutants that identify all VPN exit IPs :(

    Maybe the solution is using the newest servers, that aren't blacklisted yet, or even using the newest VPN services as the final step in nested chains. Or maybe even anonymously leasing a VPS, and creating a private VPN as the final step in a nested chain.

    i'm afraid there's no such thing as new server in vpn industry. just a few hours after it's available for users, it gets blacklisted. mostly because of spammers and wanna-be-hackers.

    I wonder if it has anything to do with them NOT allowing P2P from USA servers (I only mention this in case those are the ones you are employing, and not expecting you to confirm/deny)? Since I won't leave TOR completely I may experiment with IVPN as a post TOR vpn. I run into captcha popups too but not enough to drive me off TOR's protection.

    I'm sure it is mainly due to them not offering free trials by any means. ;)

    "NOT allowing" is more than they can manage. They discourage it, and they don't do port forwarding, but they can't prevent it. BolehVPN has the same policy on its US exits, and I see a lot more CAPTCHAs using them. Maybe iVPN does a better job of managing DMCA notices and complaints generally.
    TCP-mode VPNs do work via Tor. Better yet are VPN servers run as hidden services. That is, a Tor exit node could also be a VPN exit, and users could connect to it via Tor. But finding survivable hosting for that server would be very hard ;)

    Maybe the CAPTCHA issue depends mostly on what uplink providers (and their associated IP ranges) the VPN service is using. And maybe some uplink providers and associated clients have more clout keeping their IPs off the blacklists than others do. But that's entirely speculative, and I have no clue how that stuff works (except that money must somehow be involved).
