Preferences
General

Set various options like Launch and Connect at startup or Enable logging for debugging.



Networking

This section allows changing various options like the IP leak protection (internet kill-switch), UDP or TCP connections, and port.



1) Common

Set default gateway – This option enables/disables sending traffic over the VPN. Default is enabled (protected)

IP and DNS leak protection – This option acts like an internet kill switch. This will keep your internet from working if you lose the connection to the servers.

Protocol – UDP or TCP. UDP is faster but TCP is useful in some cases when you want to mimic HTTPS traffic or if you’re having trouble staying connected

Port – Changing ports may help if you’re having connection issues. Can be used in conjunction with protocol to mimic HTTPS by choosing port 443 and the TCP

2) Balancing

Load Balance – Automatically choose gateway based on server load

Random Balance – Connect to a random server each time you connect

3) IP Settings – Use this to automatically change IP at a set interval. The client will reconnect to other VPN gateways in the same city

Interval to change IP – minimum 5 minutes
