Multiple Inbound/Dynamic Outbound Settings

Recommended Posts

New to AirVPN and some questions (updated):

 

-When creating a configuration using the generator, a user selects a region, for example Spain. The configuration then provides a single IP address through whatever protocol to connect the user to the server. However, there is more than one server in Spain, so how does the client automatically/dynamically choose the outbound server for a whole region if it connects inbound to only one IP?

 

-Which OpenVPN client string is required to automatically tear down a connection every hour and bring it back up?

 

-What are the drawbacks of using all three AirVPN connection allotments via a single port/protocol to different servers? For example, 80/TCP to three different servers at the same time from the same OpenVPN device through multiple client connections. It is noticed that all three connections will be within the same private CIDR space, such as 10.6.0.0/24 when connecting with the same port/protocol, regardless of which server is being connected to. Is this a problem?

 

-Are there any known issues or other settings required to permit UDP/53 connection functionality? Successful connections are being established to 443/TCP 80/TCP, but 53/UDP will not connect (OpenVPN).

 

A small reward for reading this post: Do NOT ever use/recommend 'NordVPN'. It is not what it seems. (I'd give them an A+ for the deception effort though, and probably the best looking website of any VPN provider. Too bad they are what they are.)

I don't think there's a directive for automatic reconnection on the hour.  But, the default settings will renegotiate the data channel key every hour.  You can edit this with the directive reneg-sec n where n is the number of seconds between renegotiation. 

 

if you can't connect via UDP 53 you probably have a router redirecting UDP53 traffic to internal DNS resolution to prevent the use of "rogue" DNS.

The config generator will pick the IP of the recommended server from those chosen. If you don't tick the box for 'Resolved hosts in .ovpn file' then the ovpn will contain a DDNS address which will effectively do the same at runtime if I understand it correctly.
