Speedify LIVE Office Hours: Q&A With Our Developers
November 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Answering Questions We Get in Support
On the 149th episode of Speedify LIVE we hold yet another Office Hours with Speedify’s Lead Developer to answer any and all questions about Speedify!
We take viewer questions, take a look at our Mailbag for some specific use-cases, and chat about what’s coming from Speedify in the future!
Here are our 5 takeaways from our weekly Office Hours:
- We often talk about servers, sockets, packets and clients, but we realize we never defined them! A server is essentially another machine that’s running a service, in our case, hosting VPN servers. Sockets provide two-way communication between a device and another computer over a network/Internet. Packets are essentially chunks of data that’s sent between your computer and another. While a Client is the device itself that you’re using to talk to a server.
- Mailbag Question no.1 brings up the issue of accessing different services that may block VPNs. This is why Speedify has a Bypass feature that allows you to route the traffic of services like Amazon Prime around the VPN, allowing to access their services while being connected to Speedify.
- Mailbag Question no.2 brings up the importance of making sure your device’s date and time is properly synced! In this specific case a user didn’t have things synced up and was unable to update Speedify on their Raspberry Pi. After syncing up the time and date, though, everything worked as intended!
- Mailbag Question no.3 brings up a common question of expectations of connection speeds and Speedify. A user was experiencing slow speeds with Speedify due to one of their connections being too slow for bonding. This is why we recommend first knowing what your connections are capable of on their own, then seeing how they work in Speedify. Do note that more connections will not necessarily mean a faster connection.
- While Speedify doesn’t have a way of automatically knowing what your ISP data cap is, we do have a way to help stay within those limits! Speedify allows you to set Daily and Monthly Data Caps, so you can make sure you don’t use up all your data in one go!
We have a lot of different videos and KB articles for getting users started and setting things up. We’re certainly trying to make sure that the connections that you want to use are connected to your device..and make sure they’re showing up in Speedify.
