Host Name: You can connect to a VPN hub located in any CNS datacenter. We recommend you select the one closest to you, unless you have a specific reason to use another. If you are not sure which is closest to you then try a ping to each and pick the one with the least latency. They are:
vpn.la.commercialnetworkservices.net (Los Angeles)
vpn.nyc.commercialnetworkservices.net (New York)
SSTP will connect to our AnonymousVPN hub by default. To use a different VPN hub, please append "@hubname" on the user name. i.e. if your user is 12345 and you want to connect to Anonymous_with_TOR, user name should be 12345@Anonymous with TOR. note this is case specific.
NOTE: To prevent abuse, SMTP port 25 is blocked by default. Please instead use your mail providers port 587 with authentication.
