Hello,

i just opened now a IRC Channel #AirVPN on the irc network  irc.freenode.org

 

this channel can be usefull for new users to get in touch with AirVPN services and just to talk about Anonimyzers in general.

if any administrator of AirVPN want to come, i will be glad to offer them the Operator status.

 

i hope that you will like it & have a nice day.

I like the idea of an AirVPN "chat lounge" of some sort. However, I wouldn't choose Freenode for two reasons:
- restrictive Tor policy (you can't connect via Tor unless you're registered, which they don't allow you to do via Tor).
- they've blocked AirVPN (and other VPNs) in the recent past:
https://airvpn.org/topic/9399-freenode-bans-airvpn-users/

The OFTC network - also the home of Tor's channels - might be a better fit, what do you think?

In any case, for such a channel to "take off" AirVPN would have to mention it on its site, so let's hear how staff feels about an IRC channel.

IRC: I am against Freenode because they discriminate against Tor users. Oddly enough, "Anonops" has an even worse Tor policy! From the instructions on their site on how to connect via Tor: "You must have a registered nick which has been active for 3 days on our network."

OFTC has none of these restrictions, allowing channel mods to decide on their own Tor policy.

 

XMPP: My guess would be that IRC is still more popular, but I like the idea! I'll be idling in lounge@conference.xmpp.airvpn.org

I agree ,its an easy and save option.b.t.w. Pidgin is easy to configure for this.

I'd like to revisit this issue.  I'm okay with using the AirVPN XMPP server, but IRC is pretty convenient.  I'll make a point of visiting #AirVPN on OFTC, in case anyone is interested.

Be competent users who can answer most questions, link to forum posts, be nice and polite.


» 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.
