Disable Softether welcome web page

Post by dev » Sun Jul 07, 2019 5:20 pm

My ISP blocks VPN connections via DPI (deep packet inspection) and IP ban lists.

Softether seems to be really good at evading DPI, but it has a glaring omission that it displays a welcome web page for everyone to see, declaring itself to be a VPN server. Which is very easy for my ISP to detect and ban.

How do you disable this landing / welcome web page?

I've tried modifying vpn_server.config to change the following line:
bool DisableJsonRpcWeb.Api fale
bool DisableJsonRpcWeb.Api true

then restarted, but that didn't do it. The page still up.

Any idea how to stop this page from showing to everyone visiting my Softether VPN address via https://myvpnaddress ?

What welcome web page are you talking about? I have never been re-routed to a "SoftEther Welcome web page" when I connect to a VPNGATE or a SoftEther server. Are you talking about the little popup you sometimes get when connecting to a "VPNGATE server" If so that is controlled on the host server and is not a webpage.
