VirtualBox(Linux/Ubuntu) + AirVPN setup, Questions regarding setup

Recommended Posts

Good Evening,

I had a couple of questions about setting up a VPN with VirtualBox. I believe I have it setup properly, but thought Id ask just to be sure. (Hope this is the right place to ask...)

Linux Disto: Ubuntu 16.04.3  64bit
VirtualBox: 5.2.2 r119230

So, to start, I setup the VM with 4GB RAM, and 150GB of storage, and keep the network adapter attachment set to NAT(Not sure if it should be left like this). I install ubuntu as usual, and once completed, I begin by disabling IPv6 using the commands:

sudo nano /etc/sysctl.conf

I then add the three lines:

net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.default.disable_ipv6 = 1
net.ipv6.conf.lo.disable_ipv6 = 1

I then reboot and run the following command:

cat /proc/sys/net/ipv6/conf/all/disable_ipv6

which replies with '1'. Success...I think.
I reboot again to be sure and still see it dispayed as '1'.

I download from the AIRVPN website the Linux-Debian/Ubuntu Eddie Client.

I install Eddie using:

sudo apt install "File Location"

Successfully installs.

I then notice it has 2 commands listed below in the download:
wget -qO - https://eddie.website/repository/keys/eddie_maintainer_gpg.key|sudo apt-key add -

This commands replies with a single line stating "OK"

The next command doesnt work Deb is not a valid command:
deb http://eddie.website/repository/apt stable main

No biggy...probably.

Afterwards, I do a quick "My IP" seach and see that both the host and guest public IPs are the same.

I disable webRTC in Firefox, turn off tracking and history and rebooted the VM again.

I check to make sure IPv^6 is disable in the Eddie Preferences, turn on network lock, login, and select my favorite AirVPN server. Once connect, I check with IPleak.net, and see that it connect properly. No leaks (as far as I can tell).

I check my connection on my host, and it appears as normal(not connected to the VPN).

With all this, I assume my VPN + VM setup is complete. The fact that my Public IP was the same kinda worries me, but it changed in the Guest OS after connecting to the VPN, so I assume it is setup properly.

If anyone can confirm if this setup is valid, that would be fantastic.
