Works Well - Report if Broken

  • Login on Portmaster Client successfully connects to the SPN
  • Normal browsing of websites
  • Big file downloads
  • Video streaming
  • UDP based applications
  • High Bandwidth: up to 100MBit/s (and more, depending on path)

Under Investigation - Please Test and Report

  • Video Conferencing
  • Torrents

Known Issues

  • Internal scheduling needs improvement: When a big download is in progress, other connections may die. In some circumstances, the health check will fail and the SPN will reconnect. Fix is in progress.
