Thank you for subscribing to our VPN service. This service is designed to enable you to tunnel thru ISP’s with restrictive peering policies and enjoy connectivity to one of the most connected networks on the Internet. You will soon be enjoying all of the IPv4 and V6 Internet. This document is intended to help you get started. It contains login details you will need to access the VPN. Please keep it secured.
Windows users can use the built in Windows SSTP VPN client. No software is required.

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.
AnonymousVPN: This VPN hub will assign you a private IPv4 and v6 address. We will then change your public IP address based on the egress point on our network to the remote network you are contacting. For example, if the remote network is peered with us in Los Angeles, then your public IP to that host will be from our Los Angeles datacenter. And if the remote network is peered with us in Europe, then that host will see an IP from our UK datacenter. This will provide a static “enough” public IP address for you to work online, while changing it frequently enough to make tracking difficult. Please keep in mind that this does not prevent other methods of tracking your online activity, so be sure to disable cookies and such. We do not log these connections, however we do employ real time abuse sensors. Please remember - this service is intended to help protect your privacy. It is not a license to behave badly on the Internet and we will respond appropriately if it comes to our attention. This hub is unlikely to comply with most corporate policies becuase activity is not logged.
Anonymous with TOR: This hub will connect you directly to the onion network (TOR). No extra software is required. This is the ultimate in online privacy!
Anonymous_Pub_Static_IP_VPN: This VPN hub will assign you a single public IPv4 and v6 for the duration of your VPN session. We do maintain connection logs to be in compliance with most corporate policies. Logs are only available by subpoena or request of the account owner.
San Diego Web Cam: Select this VPN hub if you only want to use this VPN service to view the San Diego Web Cam in 720p. It is configured to only pass traffic to/from the cam so you can keep it enabled if you like.
NOTE: To prevent abuse, SMTP port 25 is blocked by default. Please instead use your mail providers port 587 with authentication.
