Re: Chicago speeds and New York speeds.

The web servers are different from their content servers. When you do a packet capture or watch the traffic on a ps4 when actually downloading a game it resolves to limelight for me. Gets weird now, I wanted to test while downloading a game to see where it connects too. So I'm downloading Firewatch...

Re: Chicago speeds and New York speeds.

Yeah HFC is what I'm on. From doing a trace, Sony comes up using Akamai in Ontario for me, as of late I have notice steam in using them in Toronto as well, yet my speeds are pretty good with them but could be better. Apple just flyes by when steaming a movie, with in a min or two the bar is filled a...

Re: Chicago speeds and New York speeds.

Yeah I don't know what is up with Sony and their crappy game delivery. I recently got a PS4 and no matter what I do the PS4 downloads at about 25-30Mbps, with it being a little more consistent when the console is in rest mode. This is well documented online and I doubt we will see sony change this....

Re: Chicago speeds and New York speeds.

Well sad to say that this didn't work out for me. On my normal connection the network was only getting max 14Mbps on the PlayStation network using my 250Mbps line. Using Chicago as a VPN in hopes of getting a faster PlayStation content server made my connection worst. I got 6 Mbps and that also incl...

Re: Chicago speeds and New York speeds.

Are you able to monitor CPU usage on your router? If you're pushing over 100Mb/s over a VPN you may be limited by your routers CPU. Just connected to the PSN network using the VPN and ran the network speed test. Peak load on the router CPU during the test was 37% and min load was 5%. I really think...

Re: Chicago speeds and New York speeds.

The client is my asus router software and the config is just the default generated by that script. I don't think it the server or OpenVPN software. I just think it the host PlayStation is using for there CDN. Which is why I'm trying to find the best area to get the best CDN speeds from the PSN netwo...

Re: Chicago speeds and New York speeds.

Well let's start with the good news, my router supports OpenVPN and is easy to use. The tutorial you linked me was great, had the server setup with OpenVPN in 5 mins without a glitch. Bad news, connection to a PSN server in the Chicago area was worst then the two PSN servers in Canada. I only got a ...

Re: Chicago speeds and New York speeds.

I'll look into it but I'm not sure if my router supports OpenVPN. I have an asus RTU66U. So when I get off work I'll check out my router to see if I can use it

Re: Chicago speeds and New York speeds.

Well I just ordered a new VPS in Chicago, so tomorrow I'll set it up and hope for the best. Got to figure out how to install a VPN like PPTP.

Re: Chicago speeds and New York speeds.

I just did a few trace routes on your test IP's, Chicago which is far away from me has less hops and a lower ping then New York. So my ISP has better routing to Chicago. I just hope that this option will work for me and allow me to get a PlayStation CDN server that can push out some real speeds then...

Chicago speeds and New York speeds.

I use to rent a VPS here a few years back in New York. Servers were great, service was great. Of course I live in Canada and I went with a full box close by where I live. But I still love the service I got here at NFO and still have web services here. Now I'm in the market once again for a single co...

DayZ mod now on Steam

So with DayZ mod now being on steam for download. Will this mean that there is a better chance of having this supported for managed servers ? That is now that the mod could be installed using the steam commands.

Re: I hate hurricane electric

This is how my old ISP routed me. I go from the island of newfoundland where I live to the city here, then to chicago and then to New York, yet we are righ6t next door (4 hours by plane) from New York. Heck we sell power from here in Canada to New York so there no issue with putting cable down. But ...

Re: Killing Floor more than 6 players

Yup that's what my buddy is using on his KF server he runs on my VDS. You will also need a perk mod as your perk classes will be level 0. No ranking for this type of mod.

I really don't think he download a key logger from an old clan member who is up rising against him. The control panel for NFO along with FTP are fine from what I can see. He doesn't even log into it because he afraid he may mess something up and don't understand how to install maps or mods. So far s...
