Important update on AirVPN over TOR

Recommended Posts

This is an important update about connecting AirVPN over TOR. When performing critical data transmission, please always evaluate whether it's the case to harden security with this kind of connection.

The reported example is a working and tested configuration with Tor Browser Bundle, that is highly recommended by the TOR Project.


Kind regards

I'm not seeing an option for using a SOCKS proxy with the latest Windows client. What am I missing?


Can you please check that you're using AirVPN version 1.6? After you have right-clicked on the dock icon, select "Preferences". In the preferences window, you should see the following options in the Proxy "Type" combo box: None, http, socks.

We're looking forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

I've got it working now... thanks!

I was trying to find the SOCKS option through the client interface itself, not by bringing up the tray icon's context menu. While it's certainly not difficult to do it that way, having access to the "Preferences" in the client interface might be a nice feature to add down the road.
