    Hi... A question about something I see in the xerobank 'best effort' log. Just reading and figuring stuff out in the log for curiosity's sake. Shadowvpn is the budget version of the full xerobank product, right? Why is Shadowvpn referenced in the log here? Just because it's part of the same family?

    Probably the issue is that the exit node is in Netherlands sharing a crowding on ShadowVPN. I'll inquire.

    It is kind of something you need to know since your primary focus is security and not knowing where your connections are routed is not security xD

    I checked it out. It's part of the domain resolver. In this case it is a Xero Networks server running the resolver and a ShadowVPN node. It is an aesthetic issue only.
