Should be fixed now, if you restart HideAway you'll get version 4.17.3 which fixes a DNS issue.

It's hopeless trying to use Hideaway this evening, 8pm, Hobart, Tasmania.
I'm getting 1-4mbps using perth and sydney servers, 107mbps when I disconnect from your servers.
Please sort this out. Maybe it'd be a bit easier for us if there were more than 2 locations in Aussie to connect to?
Thanks for looking into this

Chris.

Chicago and Dallas are being blocked by torrentfunk.com. The only other one I checked was Miami which was not blocked.

@ Chris, sorry about this, I've checked them and they seem to be running fine so not sure how you were getting such slow speeds. When you are checking locally, the server you're testing against will be local to you where as the other speedtest servers will be in Sydney and Perth, although I'd not expect much of a difference.

@ mst246 - we can't do anything if a company has blocked our servers, except contact them to ask if they can unblock them. You're best off connecting to a torrent friendly country like The Netherlands for torrents anyway.
