An exit node is simply the outgoing IP address of any particular AirVPN server. It isn't a part of any other company. It is the IP address that any site you connect to sees rather than the your real IP address which is a main objective of any such server. All Air's servers have just a single entry IP and a single (but different) exit IP, which further protects your connections.

A numbered list! YES! It's a little silly of me to answer all of them. So here it comes.

  1. As Mr. TobysNose and Ms. Embers wrote, it's just an AirVPN server.
  2. You can see it as an indicator whether you are connected to AirVPN.
  3. Since it's an AirVPN server, some IPs can become exits.
  4. IPs which are not exits are no AirVPN IPs and should be avoided haha
  5. It's not bad.
  6. That's a difficult one.......... Oh, wait. No, it isn't.

» 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.

On my daily visit to ipleak.net today I noticed two changes to my normal results, and I'm wondering why this happened as I haven't changed any settings on my computer --

 

1. The box for Your IP Addresses and the one for DNS Address Detection have always shown the same result as each other, but today the IP Address one is the same as usual, while the DNS Address Detection one only contains about two dozen yellow triangles and a message when I hover the cursor over it - NO IP. Internal Error.

 

2. In the IP Details section the Tor Exit Node and the AirVPN Exit node have always shown the same result - red circles and No for both - but today the Tor one is still red/No and the AirVPN one is green/Yes.

 

I'm wondering what the reasons are for this sudden difference because as I say I have changed any settings. Can anyone help me understand, please.

Hello!

 

Maybe this is why.


Moderators do not speak on behalf of AirVPN. Only the Official Staff account does. Please also do not run Tor Exit Servers behind AirVPN, thank you.
Did you make a guide or how-to for something? Then contact me to get it listed in my new user guide's Guides Section, so that the community can find it more easily.
