Title: London End Point full
Post by: jmangan on March 01, 2012, 07:02:18 AM
Hi, I've just registered for the first time and created a tunnel. When I came to select the tunnel end-point the recommendation was London (I'm in the UK) but that selection was blocked because the endpoint is full.

I've selected Paris initially but is the capacity at London going to increase? Should I be changing the end-point if/when that happens? Is there any down-side to being forced to choose Paris rather than London?

Thanks,

John

What is the difference in ping times between the two?

Do you mean on IPv4? I haven't tried that.

I was more concerned about any potential future IPv6 issues.

Yeah...ping the tunnel IPv4 end point and see what the difference in time is

Neither the London or Paris servers are responding to pings?

As I said though I'm not too bothered about short-term performance issues. I just want to know if there are any longer term implications of using Paris rather than London.

I'm able to ping paris, but I don't know the IP of London.

To answer your question, the answer is no

From my location in the UK, Paris seems to be next best after London. I set up a Paris tunnel on our training router at work and it works well.

I've also asked recently about the status of London, although in the forums, guess a direct email would have been more appropriate.

IPv4 addresses FYI from the Create a new Tunnel page.

London, UK [ 216.66.80.26 ]
