Not Aion VPN

Installation and setup instructions

by Harboe


Current server list:

  • Frankfurt am Main, Germany (Not Aion DE1)
  • Bochum, Germany (Not Aion DE2)
  • Roubaix, France (Not Aion FR2)
  • Amsterdam, Netherlands (Not Aion NL1)
  • Amsterdam, Netherlands (Not Aion NL2)
You add the servers to your VPN list by double-clicking the file with their name in the downloaded archive.

The latest version of the VPN setup tool + server configurations can be found here: https://notaion.com/launcher/Not_Aion_VPN.zip

A measurement tool is also included (Not Aion VPN Ping Test) which can be used after you've set everything up and added all the servers. This tool will measure your latency to the EU gameserver while connected through each VPN server and compare it to your normal connection. So if you want to see which server is best for you, run this tool. It takes ~1 minute to complete the analysis.


Installation instructions

Make sure to follow each step carefully and precisely!

1) Download SoftEther VPN Client, an open source VPN made by some Japanese peeps.
http://www.softether-download.com/files ... -intel.exe

2) Run installer.

3) Accept UAC prompt.
Image

4) Select the VPN Client.
Image

5) Install it.
Image
Image
Image

6) Run SoftEther VPN Client Manager.
Image
Image

7) Create new Virtual Network Adapter (name it VPN).
Image
Image
Image

8) Download: https://notaion.com/launcher/Not_Aion_VPN.zip

9) Unpack the downloaded zip archive.

10) Double-click Not Aion DE1.
Image
Image

11) Double-click the Not Aion DE1 VPN connection in the window.
Image

12) Now, run Not Aion VPN.exe from the downloaded folder. Accept the UAC prompt and click Setup once its started.
Let it run until it's done (if it gives an error it's probably because you didn't do the previous step).
The VPN connection will disconnect and automatically reconnect after 15 seconds.

13) Test that it's working by pinging Not Aion EU from a command prompt. The command is: ping ls.notaion.com
You can also use the Not Aion VPN Ping Test tool now which will find out which server works best for you.
Image

14) After playing, you can disconnect by right-clicking Not Aion DE1 in the window and selecting Disconnect.
Image

You can also just completely shut down SoftEther VPN if you want to.

Troubleshooting

If your internet doesn't work after connecting to the VPN, do the following:

Click the Windows Start Button and type ncpa.cpl followed by hitting Enter.

Now right click the VPN adapter and select Properties.

Select TCP/IPv4 (Internet Protocol Version 4) and click Properties. Click advanced at the bottom of the new window.

Ensure that "Automatic metric" is selected at the bottom (if it's not, tick it), then click OK and OK until all the windows are closed.

Now reconnect the VPN (if you were connected, first disconnect, then connect). Your internet should work again.



Troubleshooting extended

If it still doesn't work, follow the same steps as before, but now untick Automatic metric and type 9000 in the box. Click OK and OK until all the windows are closed and reconnect the VPN.



Unstable ping with VPN

If you are experiencing large ping fluctuations in-game while connected using one of the VPN servers, you can try the following:

Disconnect the VPN, right click your preferred VPN server connection in the SoftEther VPN Client Manager and select Properties. In the bottom right corner, click Advanced Settings. On the right hand side of the window that pops up, tick Disable UDP acceleration. Click OK and OK again to save the settings.

Now reconnect the VPN and test if your ping is stable.



Uninstalling

Before uninstalling SoftEther VPN Client, you should delete the Virtual network adapter that was created. Do this by opening SoftEther VPN Client Manager and selecting the adapter in the list at the bottom. Right click and select "Delete Virtual Network Adapter". Wait till it's gone from the list.

Now you can uninstall with peace at heart :)

Support

If you are having issues setting up the VPN or none of the servers improve your connection, then please write here and we will try to assist you. If you simply have a bad connection or live very far from the main server, then we most likely cannot help you.

If there's sufficient demand, we can get more servers in different locations.



Disclaimer

The Not Aion VPN can only be used for playing on the Not Aion EU server (currently). You cannot use it for any other purposes and it will only allow connections to/from the Not Aion EU server.



Manual setup (if step 12 fails)
Please note that this should only be done if step 12 fails and the VPN setup is not working for you.

Make sure you are connected to the VPN.

Click Start Menu and type in regedit then hit Enter.

Navigate to the path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces (check that the path matches in the lower left corner of the screen).

Go through the different interfaces with names like {2CD528B6-53F8-423C-BA41-24BD5945770B} until you find the interface which contains a key called DhcpDefaultGateway with the value 192.168.30.1.

Right click in the open space on the right hand side and select New > DWORD-value (32-bit). Name it TcpAckFrequency, hit Enter, then Right-click and select Edit and change the value to 1.

Repeat the procedure, but name the key TCPNoDelay and set the value to 1 again. If these keys already exist, simply change their values to 1.

Now open a Command Prompt as Administrator (Start Menu > type in cmd > right click it and select Run as Administrator).

Type the following command: route add -p 109.201.133.38 192.168.30.1

Hit Enter and it should say OK!

Now you must either restart your computer or disable and re-enable the VPN network adapter. You can do that by going Start Menu > type in ncpa.cpl > hit Enter. Now select the adapter which is called VPN and right click > Disable. Wait for it to gray out and say Deactivated. Right click > Enable.

And that's it.

Sounds plausible. The reason why it doesn't help is because the proxy servers are in Germany, not a very good location for improving your ping (not going to disclose your country here). I'm trying very hard to look for proxy servers in locations that can benefit Western part of Europe, but it's not easy.

If you know a good WTFast server, please share it with us. It should be a server that drastically improves your connection to Not Aion.

The best you can do is connect to Not Aion with WTFast running on the good server. Then start the Resource Monitor (Start Menu > resmon.exe /res) and go to the network tab. In active connections (TCP), filter on WTFast and take a screenshot. Post it here and then we will see if we can get a similar server.

Thanks a lot! Would you mind providing a "counterfactual" - your ping when simply connecting to Not Aion without any aids? It doesn't have to be a screenshot or anything, just like, state the number :)

There is my ping with nothing else http://puu.sh/njrYs/ee89582bbd.jpg

And when there is more ppl on (like 200) its around 100ms to 200+ (with wtfast almost never hit 90)

By the way for ppl who have a shitty internet like mine (not bad ping but bad connexion 300kb as max download like moi) I suggest you to use this soft : NetLimiter 4 its free for... idk like 30 days (Ill not teach you how to download a full free version hue) with that soft you can regular every apps on your pc, for example I change the max download in Chrome to 75kbs and then I can watch youtube video in 480p and play w/o any lags, enjoy
