I am unable to connect with OpenVPN. My OS does not suppot LZO compression!

Some operating systems such as ChromeOS or Mikrotik indeed support OpenVPN, but do not allow it to run with LZO compression. The Proxy.sh network uses LZO compression as a security and performance standard, so you might feel stuck.

Nonetheless, to ensure we attempt to protect the maximum audience, we are running OpenVPN without LZO compression on UDP port 1195 and TCP port 111.

Hence, if you are on an operating system that supports OpenVPN but you still cannot connect because it does not provide any LZO compression option, you can opt to connect through UDP port 1195 or TCP port 111 to any node part of our network and it will work just fine.

We still strongly recommend that you opt for an operating system that allows you to enjoy the full security features of our network.
