Why decentralise Virtual Private Networks (VPN)?

We’re a decentralised virtual private network, which means that our architecture can’t actually keep logs of your traffic in the first place. Instead, your traffic data is distributed across the network with no single node having complete access to who you are, and what you are doing (coming soon).

This means when the authorities come knocking, we have nothing to show.

Will I need a static IP address to run a node?

Yes, you will need to have a static IP address for nodes. A domain is not needed as we don’t detect and use it in proposals. For nodes to operate you need a public IP address.

At our alpha testing phase we only support nodes operating in hosting servers (external IPs only).

How do I check that my node is working?

After your node IP gets whitelisted, you will the following result:

[Mysterium.api] Proposal registered for node:

The node (and identity) should be visible in

You will be able to test tunnel by installing mysterium-client package and use –cli for command like client.

Do I need to open some ports in my router?

Yes, if you’re running a node from your home you will need to forward required ports. You will need to open at least the 1194 (default OpenVPN) port.

You will also need to set up a forward rule into your local IP address where your node is running.
