A basic API is currently being developed, the public beta is currently available. Details are available here.
Yes Linux, BSD, Windows, Router OS and all other modern Operating Systems are supported. Some backend communication methods may not be compatible with certain Operating Systems.
UDP, TCP and HTTP can all be forwarded to your backend server. You may add up to 50 ports to be forwarded and 10 port ranges. If you require more than this a DMZ entry can be used to forward all ports for either TCP or UDP (or both) to a specific backend server.
We do not arbitarily limit the number of possible connections beyond the limitations of the technology used. Any technology limitation is measured in the tens of thousands scale and hence is unlikely to be reached. All resources, including connections have an element of fair use - we have a responsibility to ensure Quality of Service for all of our customers and we do wish for you to keep this in mind if applicable.
No we can not currently support this.
Services running over TCP, UDP and HTTP (Layer 7) are supported. Port Forwards, Port Ranges and DMZ's facilitate the protection of almost all services imaginable.
No, we provide Remote DDoS protection. We do not provide hosting or servers.
Each service is based around a single IP or set of paired IPs in the case of Multihomed services. Additional IPs are available in the form of additional services.
The GeoLocation of all IPs are handled by different governing bodies that issue those IPs, as well as third party vendors maintaining their own databases. In most cases the registration country of an IP allocation is that of the owning company jurisdiction, in our case Australia.
We attempt to notify third party database maintainers of the correct Geographical information of all IP allocations as appropriate, however these companies and organizations move at their own pace. If there is a discrepancy it may be resolved in the future, feel free to make a suggestion to the appropriate database through any submission form if available.
In most cases a custom PTR value for your filtered IP address can be set via the control panel. By default all IP Reverse DNS values are set to a hosted alias at x4b.me which resolves back to the IP address. PTR Records are not currently available to be set at our Netherlands PoP.
Yes, in order to ensure the most accurate filtering, allow for multiple backends and to preserve limited IPv4 resources all Tunnels are NAT'ed.
The Tunnel backend connection method is intended for the protection of servers. It may also be utilized for protection of gaming clients. It is not intended for anonymous browsing (including Bittorent). To combat this appropriate logging of outgoing communication is performed.
