Why are we using OpenVPN

Port forwarding has always been an issue for plenty of players since day one of Earth 2150 release. Massive deploying of routers in households, combined with restricted administrative access to it by Internet Service Providers and giving to end-users private (non-public) IP addresses instead of real ones, made this issue only worse over the years.

This is where OpenVPN comes in handy. When you, your friends and everyone else are connecting to our OpenVPN server, you will be automatically assigned with virtual IP addresses from the same network, which practically puts you in the same virtual Local Area Network, and since that moment it doesn't matter if you have or haven't public IP and/or restricted router — all you have to do is to make sure your local firewall in your operating system doesn't block necessary traffic.

This VPN is free of charge, you don't have to pay anything to use it.

Using this VPN is safe as it's configured to pass through only necessary game traffic, anything else like shared folders is restricted by default on server side.

OpenVPN Security

The IE OpenVPN network is secured to only allow the game traffic on the relevant ports, these are:

ICMP (ping)

All other traffic is blocked
