Review: Hidester VPN

Why should you need a VPN?

Cybercriminals, Hackers, spies, government, overeager retailers and even internet service providers can watch what you do online but only if we let them.

So in this review i tested the VPN service of “Hidester VPN” for a couple of days, I used my iPhone to test and i must say i like the speed of the network and the simplicity of the client. I tried to reach out to some blocked sites, and these are working fine.

Hidester VPN is registered in Hong Kong, as this country does not have any data retention law, and therefore a complete no log VPN service could be legally operated from there. Some key points on Hidester VPN are:

  • High Speed VPN
  • Zero Logging
  • AES-256-CBC TLS 2048 encryption
  • Use of 5 simultaneously
  • Torrenting and P2P allowed
  • Allow access to blocked sites

At the moment of writing they have 45 servers in 41 locations available for you.

Quality of Service Config Script for Microsoft Teams

Quality of Service (QoS) is a mechanism that lets you prioritize certain types of network traffic. Prioritizing the traffic for real-time communications services such as Teams is important in order to deliver a business-grade user experience. For QoS to be truly effective, a QoS-capable connection must be configured end-to-end (PC, network switches, and routers to the cloud), because any part in the path that fails to support QoS could degrade the quality of the entire call.

Just like i did for Skype for Business, i created another Powershell script just for Microsoft Teams. This script will help you to set the right QoS policies and correct registry items.

You can download the script for free from the TechNet Gallery
