Using version 220.127.116.1162 on a MacBook Pro with Mojave on a 250 Mbit/s DSL line.
1.) Upon booting the app waits about 60 - 90 seconds before starting to establish a VPN connection. For this time, I only see the white-ish app window, after those 60-90 seconds I see the app establishing the connection (which is pretty fast in terms of acquiring an IP address).
This behaviour only happens, when the option “Kill Switch” is active - no matter, what options I choose with the additional configuration of the Kill Switch.
Only, when I disable the Kill Switch, then VyprVPN app immediately establishes a VPN connection.
This behaviour is clearly connected to the Kill Switch option and not caused by a delay after the boot process of the computer: I can replicate it even with the computer fully booted, closing VyprVPN app and starting the app again. Even then, I have to wait 60-90 seconds, before the app even starts to “dial into” the VPN network!
And: it is not dependant upon the protocol I choose in options (IKEv2, Chameleon, OpenVPN).
So: Why the long wait time for starting the VPN connection, when Kill Switch is active?
2.) I want to automatically ONLY connect to a German VPN server, so I added only “Germany” as a favourite. But I cannot get rid of / remove the option “Fastest Server” on top of the “favourites window” in the server options. So at times (the VyprVPN app starts automatically, when booting the computer) , it connects to a fast server OUTSIDE of Germany. Is there any way to prevent this and FORCE a “German VPN server connection” only?
3.) When I am doing backups, I usually leave the computer unattended and let it shut down automatically, when the backups are done. But with VyprVPN active, this does not work, because when shutting down the computer, this I prevented by a notification window of the VyprVPN app, that by “closing the app, Kill Switch will prevent Internet connections”. Can this be suppressed, so that I can let the computer shut down unattended - I did not find any option in the notifications options or elsewhere.
Thanks for helping!
