I think that was my part. You tested it and said war2.ru don't respond back to such packets and you didn't plan on supporting it at that time. I can spawn many vpns with open ports

I will however not monitor the traffic but if someone would be to abuse the vpn such ass child porn, etc. I will turn in logs to authorities if needed.
Yes, so that's what i remember then. I added kind of antiddos protection against some kind of uncommon trafiic and i think that is what can make a problem for your config.
I can:
1. try to switch it off (till acher/cloak don't make his attack) to make sure that's the problem.
2. turn my firewall back and try to change you vpn config to make it work with my closed firewall.

I will setup the vpn server again. I'll send you root credentials of the VPS. Feel free to adjust as you like. Hopefully sometime this week end I might have time.


For windows 10 with DEP did you add the exception in the registry? Hope this helps.
 
 https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windows/en-US/7ee2fe13-2c0a-4e97-aff6-7da8f68b8958/how-can-i-add-an-dep-exception-for-a-program-on-server-2008-core?forum=winservercore

Step 1: Check the current level of the DEP
================================
 
Run the following command:
 
wmic OS Get DataExecutionPrevention_SupportPolicy
 
There should be a return value. Check it with the following table:
DataExecutionPrevention_SupportPolicy
Policy Level
Description
2
OptIn(Default)
Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only
3
OptOut
Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select. Admin can add create one DEP exception list
1
AlwaysOn
Enable DEP for all process
0
AlwaysOff
Disable DEP for all process
 
Step 2: Change the Policy Level
========================
 
If you want to add your application to the DEP exception list. You have to change the Policy Level to "OptOut" (please see the above table for this information).
 
You can run the following command to change this setting. Note that you have to restart your computer for it to take effect.
 
bcdedit.exe /set {current} nx OptOut
 
Step 3: Create your exception list
=========================
 
Important note that, before making any changes to the registry, you should always back up the registry first.
 
You can add the specific application to the DEP exception list by changing registry as follows:
 
For each application for which you want to disable DEP, you create a String Value where the name of the value is the full path to the executable (e.g. C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Live\Writer\WindowsLiveWriter.exe) and the value data is "DisableNXShowUI" (without quotes), under the following registry key:
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\Layers
 
This should look like the registry key settings as Tim mentioned in his blog (note that this blog is mainly for Windows XP and, the startup settings have been changed since Windows Vista from boot.ini to BCD):

If you have money you can buy pull of 10-15 VPNs, paying for them monthly and give them to anybody who have problems. Configuring that VPNs is task resolvable by a remote programmer/admin. I also don't see my part in that configuration as it's absolutely separate project from existing infrastructure.

@mousEtopher

Myself and mousetopher did try doing something like this not too long ago but it didn't work for whatever reason.  (I think she said it had something to do with utp packets or something like that)
yeah we tried ra4wvpn.com which is cheap & includes port forwarding, but turns out they forward TCP only so didn't work for hosting (in my tests anyway). too bad cause would've been perfect otherwise -- like $20 for lifetime subscription (price has gone up a little now) + easy to use client + large diverse server selection + multiple people can use 1 subscription with an access code to use in the client which doesn't compromise the main account. o well. if we can find an alternative just like it with UDP port forwarding it'd be viable!

^^I don't mind paying for say 5 of them month by month provided it does solve the hosting issue for the players we give them to.
