Hello everyone. As you may know, MAIET is banning hackers' IP addresses in an effort to prevent them from playing the game. Fortunately, however, it's extremely simple to bypass such bans. There are a few different ways of doing this, however I will only be showing you one way, which is by using VPNs. Other ways of bypassing IP address bans are found below: Renewing IP address (Only for those with dynamic IP addresses) SSH Tunnelling (More advanced, a lot of messing around needed) On to the VPN tutorial: Step 1: Locate a VPN provider Before doing anything, you need to find yourself a VPN provider. There are many available, both free and paid. I will not link to any here as if everyone uses the same set of VPNs then MAIET will most likely block their entire IP address range or their hostnames. This is the most important step as you need to find a VPN provider with servers located inside of GunZ2's operating area. This means that any European VPNs and such will not work. I've kindly provided two search pages with a ton of results for both free and paid VPNs: Free VPNs Paid VPNs Both free and paid VPNs Step 2: Create an account with your chosen provider Should be easy enough to do. You will more than likely need to register an account with your chosen provider. Remember your username and password as you will need it later. Step 3: Set up the VPN I can't really explain much for this step as it differs from provider. Some providers provide their own software for you to download, others provide PPTP/other protocol connection information and others will tell you to download other software and connect using certain information. You'll need to consult your chosen provider's website to find a connection guide. For reference, here's a few pages that will help you set up your VPN: PPTP setup guide (On Windows 7 and for IPREDATOR; replace their info with the info from your own provider) OpenVPN setup guide (Again, on Windows 7 and for IPREDATOR) Step 4: Enjoy! Close Steam before performing this step. After performing it, you may re-open Steam. Now all you need to do is connect to your VPN. Again, this varies depending on provider. With some providers it's as simple as using their own software and with others you have to connect using the Windows network connection utility (same interface that you use to connect to wireless networks). Note that this can cause connections to be lost, so if you're playing an online game or using a music streaming service you may get a connection drop. It does depend on what applications you have open. The most important thing to note here is that any files that are downloading will probably be dropped so don't switch if you have files that are downloading. If anyone has any corrections or additional information that they want bringing to peoples' attention, please let me know so that I can adjust the thread accordingly. Have fun everyone!
