  • Best shared-data plan that supports static addresses?
    If you already have an account on one of the big cloud services or are willing to sign up for one, or you have an Ubuntu physical or virtual machine at home, there are automation packages that will do all of the heavy lifting for you. For example:
  • Should we use a VPN for staking at home ? | 2021-06-08
    Unless you build your own VPN ( you are basically choosing either trusting ISP vs trusting hard-to-get-info-on company.
  • Google links IP address location with activity, not where the IP is registered | 2021-06-02

    Run your own server on Digital Ocean, look for Algo or Wireguard - Algo (ridiculously secure) - WireGuard (Industry Standard tool)
  • Connecting to Unraid Server behind CGNAT | 2021-05-30
    I recently had to solve a similar problem as my new ISP also uses a CGNAT and doesn’t currently offer static IPv4 or IPv6 addresses. I currently use a Mikrotik router which supports Wireguard (RouterOS 7) and I normally have it connected to a Wireguard server (stood up using Algo I then updated iptables on the server to forward traffic to the Wireguard IP of my router….So now I can connect back to my NAS via public IP address.

    In that case your biggest worries are going to be theft, phishing, and basic online privacy and sanitation. Use strong passwords, use two factor authentication (NOT SMS codes if at all possible!), etc. Depending on your feelings about Big Tech, migrate away from Google, use DuckDuckGo, clean up your social media profile and so forth. VPNs aren’t necessarily always trustworthy, you need to do research to figure what you feel comfortable with. If you’re technical, Trail of Bits’ Algo VPN is a great option. You can run it on Digital Ocean or even your own infrastructure. Use Signal whenever possible. Make sure your phone has a strong passcode or password. If you’re really worried turn off FaceID.
  • Adblocker + Vpn possible

  • Massive issue with ProtonVPN on Linux | 2021-05-16
    Well it really depends on what you're looking for. Setting up your own VPN would mean that you're more or less in control of how your traffic behaves, but at the cost of anonymity since the only one using that IP address is you. Trust wise it's definitely better since you had control over who the cloud provider is, which dns it used, whether or not it logged data, etc. I used AlgoVPN to set up a wireguard server in the cloud. It takes like 15 minutes
