Not connected, Your IP:

Recommended Posts

I've looked all through the posts and haven't seen any questions regarding this.  I'm connected to to the AirVPN (US server).  When I go to whatismyip.com I get the IP I would expect.  But when I go to checkmytorrentip.com I get an IP that says I'm in the Netherlands.  They are two completely different IP's so I'm sure that it's not just a location mix up.  Can anyone explain this for me?

He can see the AirVPN server IP with the remotely forwarded port. Just don't forward the same port on your router.


You could check your torrent IP with checkmytorrentip.com to be sure. Download the torrent and open it with your torrent client. Start it, view the trackers list and compare the shown IP with the one AirVPN should have given you.




just an additional note to the above: in checkmytorrentip, from our USA servers, you will see a different IP address, because the traffic is re-routed (this is performed to bypass a lot of trackers problems we were made aware of in the past, so for consistency the traffic is re-routed even to the checkmytorrentip address). Just make sure that your real IP address never comes out in the test.


Kind regards

Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.
