Eddie IPv6 WebRTC leak on Linux

Recommended Posts



I'm currently testing out AirVPN before buying a longer subscription.

However I currently have some trouble with WebRTC leaks of my IPv6 address.


My setup is the following:


  • Arch Linux 64 Bit
  • Eddie 2.15.2
  • Network Lock enabled
  • Chrome/Firefox
  • UBlock origin option to prevent WebRTC leaks enabled.
  • ISP Unitymedia DSLite (IPv6) 

When I connect to a suggested server (with network lock enabled) and check IPLeak.net, it looks like this:



The address seen under WebRTC IPv6 is the same when not connected, so something is definitely leaking. I tried with both Firefox and Chrome.

Is there a way to solve this issue? Can WebRTC leaks be an issue when using torrents?

We would like to investigate, your specific case is interesting. Your node is behind DSLite stack, with only IPv6 connection (IPv4 is encapsulated in IPv6), but you appear to have only IPv4 in the tunnel.


Can you post a system report taken just after the problem has occurred to check Eddie settings (in particular about how it must handle IPv6)? "Logs" > life belt icon > copy all > paste into your message.


Kind regards
