CactusVPN’s Softether servers now support Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS). PFS encryption is better because encryption keys change every time you start a VPN session (ephemeral encryption). So even if an attacker was to ‘crack’ one VPN session (steal the encryption keys) that information would not help them decrypt any past or future VPN sessions. PFS is the strongest encryption practice available.
Our first Romanian VPN server was a success so we present you the second one – Bucharest2. It is as good as the Bucharest server. Additionally we’ve replaced three Netherlands server: Amsterdam, Amsterdam 3 and Amsterdam 4 with two brand new 1 Gbit servers also in Amsterdam.

We at CactusVPN are constantly trying to improve the service we offer to our customers, so we are proud to announce we have started unblocking German websites with Smart DNS.
Did you notice that your IP changes every few months, weeks or maybe even each time you connect to your home WiFi? That’s because your ISP gave you a dynamic IP address. In most cases it’s not a problem, but when you need to connect to your computer through remote desktop or FTP it can become a big pain in the ass. But the reason why you’re going to start hating your ISP is the fact that with dynamic IP it’s really hard to use Smart DNS technology. It’s not a big problem if you use our software for Windows or MacOS as we use automatic IP update on each connection and you can even set it to update every 5 minutes.
