New VPN server in Poland: Welcome Warsaw!

David Wibergh, about Announcements

OVPN has opened its first data center in Poland: Warsaw. We hope that it'll provide our customers located in Poland better speeds and unlocked streaming content.

As always, the VPN server in Warsaw is physically owned by us and contains zero hard drives, is completely log free and has the same security features as all of OVPN's data centers.

Accessing the VPN server in Warsaw, Poland

There are a couple of different ways to connect to the VPN server in Warsaw as the VPN server supports both OpenVPN and WireGuard®.

Desktop client

As old server lists may be cached from before the servers were launched, please note that you might be required to manually log out and log in again to load the new server list. If you have yet to install the OVPN Desktop client, you can get started here.

  • Login to the OVPN Desktop client
  • Option 1: Choose "Select best server in Poland" in the first drop-down menu and press connect.
  • Option 2: Choose "Select server manually". Select the new server in Warsaw in the server list and press connect.

Android app

To connect to Warsaw in our Android app that uses WireGuard, click on "Fastest server" and then select Poland from the list of countries.

OpenVPN and third party systems

To connect with OpenVPN GUI, Tunnelblick, Viscosity or any other third party VPN client, new configuration files for Warsaw have been made available in each of their guides. Simply select your corresponding setup guide and follow the steps.

WireGuard

Go to the WireGuard configuration generator in order to generate a configuration file and keys to connect to the new VPN server in Poland.

Data center & server specifications

We're currently renting 1U in 3S Warsaw's data center on Annopol 3. As of now, we have a 1 Gbit/s uplink to DataPackets' network. The current transit and peering capabilities are Cogent, Telia, UPC and Orange Polska.

As soon as we get close to reaching the max capacity of the server, we will make sure to send additional servers in order to continue delivering great speeds to our customers.

The server in the rack is of model Dell PowerEdge R230 which is equipped with an Intel® Xeon® E3-1220 v6 @
3.00GHz processor, 8 GB RAM and 2x1 GbE Broadcom NIC. Just like in all other data centers, the server operates without any hard drives or any other form of permanent storage.
