Black Friday is approaching

What’s that? Black Friday is approaching? Indeed it is, and this non-official holiday brings many gifts along with it. Black Friday is the name given to the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States, traditionally the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. In time, this shopping madness has extended and is no longer an exclusive U.S. tradition, becoming one of the busiest shopping day of the year since 2005. In layman’s terms, “Black Friday” indicates the point at which retailers begin to turn a profit, or are “in the black”.

CyberGhost welcomes this urban tradition with a very special limited offer: 70% off on 1 month of Premium and Premium Plus subscriptions, fresh out of the Ghostie oven! So get set, on your marks… The race starts on 23.11.2012 and lasts exactly 24 hours. Hurry up and get protected!

CyberGhost publishes PPTP!

CyberGhost officially ended its PPTP beta phase and integrated Point-to-Point to its services. PPTP is another protocol technique beside the generally utilized OpenVPN to establish an encrypted tunnel to the CyberGhost network and advisable, if OpenVPN is no option. With the additional PPTP feature Premium and Premium Plus subscribers can connect to the CyberGhost network, even if their respective device does not support OpenVPN or is too complicated to set up

To get PPTP installed is extremely easy. Just open the network connection settings of your device, choose a new VPN connection (often even called that way) and enter the needed personal data to get access to the CyberGhost network. Note, though, that this data is only available for Premium and Premium Plus  users. It can be found in the respective online account. Please click on the entry ‘PPTP configuration’ in the right handed side menu and note the password and the server addresses you get there. The PPTP password is needed to avoid putting your regular CyberGhost account at risk, if your PPTP connection will ever be compromised.







At the time of introducing PPTP CyberGhost offers up to September, 30th, 2012 special conditions on each Premium or Premium Plus subscription, which also include UNLIMITED TRAFFIC!

  • New subscribers: Any new 1 year Premium or Premium Plus subscription will be available with a 30 % discount, PPTP and unlimited traffic included.
  • Upgrade from Classic: Any Classic subscription can be upgraded to Premium or Premium Plus at the usual conditions. Depending on the time left on your subscription and the wanted Premium Plan one will get a counterbalance of months. Details on this you will find in your account under ‘tariff information’. Of course an upgrade will include PPTP and unlimited traffic.
  • Upgrade from Premium or Premium Plus: Existing Premium and Premium Plus users can upgrade to PPTP and unlimited traffic for a small onetime fee of € 7.99 (Premium) or € 9.99 (Premium Plus).

CyberGhost opened PPTP beta for public!

CyberGhost recently started its PPTP beta phase. PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) is another VPN protocol, which you can use to get access to the CyberGhost network without any third party software. BUT: Please always check, if you can instead use OpenVPN or the CyberGhost client. PPTP is not as safe as OpenVPN and therefore only an option, if you are lagged in a situation, where you can’t use OpenVPN or your device does not support it.

To get PPTP up and running is extremely easy. Just open the network connection settings of your device, choose a new VPN connection (often even called that way) and enter one of the following addresses, when asked for a server:

Of course you must decide, which server it should be, but usually you are free to create as much VPN connections as you like to and therefore can build three different ones for different countries to choose from later on.

As long as the beta test is running, please use cyberpptpv both as a username and as the password.

After closing beta and transferring PPTP officially into the CyberGhost universe, you need to generate a PPTP password in your online account. This is due to security reasons. Like said, PPTP is not as safe as OpenVPN and more a fallback, when OpenVPN is no option. Having different passwords reduces the danger of having your CyberGhost account being cracked significantly.

Another important note: Some routers like AVM‘s FritzBox need you to clarify, if you want PPTP being activated. Please consult the manual of your device regarding this matter. It should point out the right things to do.

However, note also, that it’s necessary for us to have an eye on our capacities while being in beta and might reduce the number of open slots from time to time! So, please, don’t get angry, if you can’t always log-in. Might also be, we have to work on the settings and/or techniques.

Have fun testing! Sufficient documentations on how to use PPTP on iPhone, Android etc. are in the pipeline and will be published in our knowledgebase. The German versions are already available.

PPTP-Beta gestartet!

Wir freuen uns, euch den öffentlichen Betastart des PPTP-Protokolls ankündigen zu können. PPTP (Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol) ist ein VPN-Protokoll, welches den Zugriff auf das CyberGhost Netzwerk ohne separate Software ermöglicht. Beachtet aber bitte: PPTP ist nicht so sicher und auch nicht ganz so schnell wie das vom Client verwendete OpenVPN, dessen Nutzung nach wie vor empfohlen wird, wenn man die Wahl besitzt.

Nicht alle Geräte lassen sich aber mit dem OpenVPN-Protokoll verwenden – oder wenn doch, dann nur unter extremen Verrenkungen. Hier kann man dann auf PPTP ausweichen, dessen Einrichtung denkbar einfach ist. Geht dazu in die Netzwerk-Einrichtungseinstellungen eures Handys/Tablets oder Betriebssystem, wählt dort eine neue VPN-Verbindung aus und tragt als Server eine der folgenden Adressen ein:

Ihr müsst euch allerdings für einen der Server entscheiden, anders lässt sich PPTP nicht einrichten. Aber natürlich könnt ihr für jedes angebotene Land eine separate PPTP-Verbindung einrichten und be Bedarf aktivieren.

Als Benutzernamen und als Passwort tragt ihr jeweils cyberpptpv ein.

Wichtiger Hinweis: Einige Router wie beispielsweise die AVM FritzBox erfordern eine separate Freischaltung des PPTP-Protokolls. Informationen hierzu solltest du in der Dokumentation zu deinem Router finden.

Außerdem bedenkt bitte, dass wir in der Betaphase die Kapazitäten streng im Auge behalten und gegebenenfalls die Anzahl der Slots verringern müssen! Sollte es folglich zu Log-in-Problemen kommen, kann es gut sein, dass wir an den Einstellungen feilen.

Viel Spaß beim Testen!

PS: Wie man PPTP auf iOS oder Android einrichtet, findet ihr in unserer Knowledgebase beschrieben. Beachtet bitte, dass Schritt 1 (noch) übersprungen werden kann, da er sich auf die finale Version bezieht.
