How is this useful?  The packets still need to route from you to the mining pool and now if you connect first they need to route first from you to the vpn and THEN to the mining pool.   You are adding at minimum 1 more hop (probably more) which means one more node across which you can get packet loss and induce additional latency.

even worse - it will greatly increase your latency, and therefore you will have more stale shares, instead of less

Not at all, when I was mining with pools in other countries there where a huge amount of hops, stales etc. This VPN client allows you to connect your miners to the closest server where the pool is your mining at. IE if I am mining from Australia and the pool I am using is in Washington, I select Washington in the list of servers (Which there are 4) there for instance and my machine is then directly connected via VPN to the proxy in Washington and then there are only a few Hops! Not the 30 Hops, reducing latency and stale shares and what Both you guys are not understanding. It's a miners best friend, the installable client is for Windows, Linux & Mac OS's.

Man, seriously, before there where any pools over here in Australia, it's the only way I could get any decent mining done. It was driving me insane, with Hidemyass.com VPN the client install onto your machine, you connect authenticate to the closest server of theirs to the pool your mining at, seriously I wouldn't bother posting it unless I knew man. Just trying to help out

I just noticed that the link he posted is an affiliate URL.   That means the OP gets paid if you sign up under that link he posted.   As a network engineer i can tell you this will not make mining better for you at all.  If anything it will be worse.

You are not helping anyone out. You are fishing for commissions.

Mate, Ive been doing network's, VPN's, routing, owned an ISP, done it all for the past 15 Years and im telling you it's the only way to do it properly if your connecting to a pool in another country.

This isn't a crap VPN network, there are free gateways etc and they are crap. You install the client, select exactly the server that is closest to the mining pool your connecting to and it's perfect.

Yeah I loved it so much and know it works I am a re seller for that VPN network as it is the best!
