Not connected, Your IP:

Recommended Posts


I am away from home for some time, staying at a hospital. Luckily they have wifi  

I got a personal SSID Wlan with a personal key here.

I am using TOR as protocol. However since I'm connected with this wifi none of the AIR-VPN servers show me a ping, neither I can connect when TOR is open. (TOR itself works fine)

Any ideas how to fix this? I already tried to ipconfig /flushdns because I read it somewhere. However nothing changed. If I change the protocol to automatic no servers are pingable as well...

So which OS are you running exactly? Would be helpful to know more about your setup. Check that your firewall and/or other software isn't blocking AirVPN - presuming you're using the Eddie client. Also, did you try the SSL or SSH protocols, before pinging?

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.

Logs. Why? They contain OS and client version numbers as well as OpenVPN-related messages.

A good portion of my posts only contain a request for logs. We almost always need them for troubleshooting a setup we know nothing about.

Four simple things:
There's a guide to AirVPN. Before you ask questions, take 30 minutes of your time to go through it.

Amazon IPs are not dangerous here. It's the fallback DNS.
Running TOR exits is discouraged. They're subject to restrictions on the internet and harm all AirVPN users.

Furthermore, I propose that your paranoia is to be destroyed. If you overdo privacy, you'll be unique among the mass again.

your local proxy is refusing connections or it is not running:

This is true, I cannot see the ping of the servers.


However it is possible to connect now... just takes a very long time (and doesn't always work).


Thanks for all help
