Softether VPN

Softether VPN is a modern Multiprotocol VPN Manager and client. The program provides the highest level of privacy by independently creating L-2 and L-3 tunnels and professionally encrypting traffic. Open source ensures its free distribution, which is provided by a multinational team of volunteers. Only building the utility from components and further configuring it in the absence of a Russified interface will cause complexity. The product is intended for connoisseurs and experts and will be difficult for ordinary users.


About the product

The program was created in Japan. in 2003, Daiyu Nobori, a student at a University, developed the first version of the product and immediately came under the scrutiny of the government. The authorities considered its development unsafe, suggesting that it could " damage the image of other VPN products." The student offered the program to Mitsubishi Materials Corporation, losing the rights to it, but in 2014 he re-released it to the market, this time with open source. The issue of exclusive rights has not been fully resolved.


Softether VPN for mobile phones

Softether VPN servers are located only in the East of Eurasia, this, as well as the creation technology, provides high speed for users from Russia who live close to the localization region, as well as for customers from Central Asia. The program has a built-in firewall. The proprietary SSL-VPN data transfer Protocol used is identical in appearance to the usual HTTPS traffic, this allows you to hide the fact of using VNP and makes the program popular in China, it is able to cope with DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) technologies that block certain protocols. The program works via the rarely used port 433. Traffic is masked very successfully, sometimes simulations of ICMP (ping) and DNS queries are used for data transmission.
