[Solved]Opera vpn blocked by Iran government

  • Since yesterday opera vpn can't connect and it's clear to me that is our government censorship policy. It could be port blocking or maybe server blocking. Please do something about it. I loved that feature and how fast the vpn connect.

    Thanks and sorry for bad English

  • Have you followed forum rule number one? It probably would give you an answer for your issue.

  • @mrb96 If this is indeed censorship blocking, you might read the first several sections of the year-old article at https://www.addictivetips.com/vpn/iran-vpn/ to get a better idea of what you're facing. However, given the dynamic nature of how censors operate, there's no guarantee the VPN recommendations listed in that article are still effective. The unfortunate reality is that all VPN connections from a user must first contact the IP of the VPN, which leaves a clear blocking target (either directly at IP level or indirectly by DNS-blocking) for the determined censor. A censorship agency can easily figure out all the user-connection IP addresses used by a VPN operator, if only by installing the VPN products and patiently sniffing the resulting packet traffic. In a truly free world, things might be different, but sadly that's not the way it currently is.

  • @mrb96 There seems to have been a worldwide issue with the VPN and its HTTP certificates. Update to the latest version of Opera (60.0.3255.59) - you may need to manually update it (i.e. search for "Opera 60.0.3255.59" in Google) and then run it.

  • I'm updating right know. I hope the problem will be solved.

  • @riceuten problem solved after new update rolling out. Thanks
