Anonabox Pro TOR VPN Router Testing Setup:

To test the Anonabox Pro, I wanted to put it through a series of tests to measure the speeds of traffic using the device. To accomplish this, I ran several speed tests using TOR, each VPN, and a combination of TOR and VPN. To give a better idea of the Anonabox versus normal TOR and VPN clients on a computer, I also ran comparison tests from the computer itself for each one. In addition, since the Anonabox Pro supports both client and AP wireless modes, the tests were run using a combination of wired and wireless connections. Each of the VPN accounts were trial accounts courtesy of Anonabox and each version of the account is specified below. For each of the VPNs, I chose an endpoint in my local city for each run, since the VPN is to mask your IP address. For TOR, I edited the TORRC file and forced the exit nodes to the United Kingdom, since as a security service you want your traffic to exit a foreign country. Keep this in mind when viewing the numbers on TOR versus VPN.

 

Testing Setup:

  • Mobile Computer: Microsoft Surface 3
  • Processor: Quad-core Intel Atom x7-Z8700
  • Memory: 4GB DDR3 RAM
  • Hard Drive: 128GB SSD
  • Wireless: Wireless A/B/G/N/AC
  • Wired: Anker USB to Ethernet adapter
  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit

 

VPNs:

  • Hide My Ass VPN - v3.2
  • VyprVPN - v2.9.5.7028

 

Anonabox Pro TOR VPN Router Results:

No Services: This run I used no services to get a good baseline. 

 

 

TOR Only: This run uses TOR only, no VPN. To keep as consistent as I can, I chose the exit nodes to always be the United Kingdom. I did not specify what circuits to use, so keep that in mind.

 

 

VyprVPN Only: This set of runs were only with the VyprVPN with an exit of Austin, Texas. 

 

 

VyprVPN and TOR: This set of runs were using the VyprVPN with an exit of Austin, Texas, and TOR with an exit node of the United Kingdom.

 

 

HMA VPN Only: This set of runs were only using the HMA VPN with an exit of Austin, Texas. 

 

 

HMAVPN and TOR : This set of runs were using the HMA VPN with an exit of Austin, Texas, and TOR with an exit node of the United Kingdom.

 

 

Overall, the Anonabox Pro connected to the WAN via an Ethernet cable was the fastest combination, but using Wireless as the connection point was not far off. TOR was a bit slow, as to be expected, since TOR is not blazing fast, but efficient as adding a layer of privacy, no pun intended. When it came to the VPNs, VyprVPN was definitely faster than Hide My Ass, even when connecting to servers locally.
