ANSWERED Tor exit node is set automatically after April 2014 AirVPN Major System Update (but only under Linux)

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

After April 2014 AirVPN Major System Update I downloaded AirVPN Client v. 1.92 and generated new configurations for both Windows and Linux. However, when I am connected to AirVPN servers under Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr 64-bit, ipleak.net reveals that Tor exit node is set along with AirVPN exit node, despite the fact that Tor application is not even installed. When Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit is in use, Tor exit node doesn't exist. I checked the connection a few times with either Comodo Firewall turned on and off. My Comodo Firewall is configured to prevent leaks according to AirVPN articles.

 

In short, what does it mean? Does my connection (under Windows) lack some recently added additional layer of protection? If yes, how to turn it on. Have I to change Comodo Firewall configuration? If yes, tell me how, please.

 

Thank you for your responses.

Hello!

It implies that the VPN server has been listed as a TOR exit-node in the TOR exit-nodes list. This is caused by the fact that someone is running a TOR exit-node from behind our server (the exit-IP of the VPN server is shared). Since AirVPN does not discriminate against any protocol or application and we strictly comply to the broadest definition of Net Neutrality, this is not forbidden. Of course this does NOT mean in any way that you're in the TOR network.

Kind regards

One side question: Which list(s) does ipleak.net use in order to identify TOR exit-nodes?


» I am not an AirVPN team member. All opinions are my own and are not to be considered official. Only the AirVPN Staff account should be viewed as such.

» The forums is a place where you can ask questions to the community. You are not entitled to guaranteed answer times. Answer quality may vary, too. If you need professional support, please create tickets.

» If you're new, take some time to read LZ1's New User Guide to AirVPN. On questions, use the search function first. On errors, search for the error message instead.

» If you choose to create a new thread, keep in mind that we don't know your setup. Give info about it. Never forget the OpenVPN logs or, for Eddie, the support file (Logs > lifebelt icon).

» The community kindly asks you to not set up Tor exit relays when connected to AirVPN. Their IP addresses are subject to restrictions and these are relayed to all users of the affected servers.

 

» Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, chances are you will be unique amond the mass again.
