Work in China?

Post by wallmama » Mon May 13, 2019 2:27 am


Would this software work in China if I install it on a US VPS? Would it be able to bypass the great firewall's deep packet inspection? If so, what's the correct configuration? How does it compare to 3rd party China vpn solutions, services like VyprVPN got customized obfuscation algorithm or sth. Is OpenVPN capable of doing the same?

If this proves to be a better solution for China users, I'd love to recommend it to them. 3rd party solutions can cost a lot.


I should be on the dev team.

The OpenVPN Access Server will work in China, if you yourself are in China. As soon as you try to cross the border with this traffic, you will run into the Great Chinese Firewall. Our OpenVPN Access Server product is not designed to defeat this firewall.

There are VPN providers out there that use OpenVPN open source project with obfuscation that tries to defeat this firewall, with varying degrees of success. But that is not what our OpenVPN Access Server product is about.
