Not connected, Your IP:

IPv6 is disabled at OS level

Recommended Posts

I use Windows 10 Pro and every time I connect using Eddie I saw the following "toast" warning:



The Wi-Fi properties had IPv6 enabled:



... so I was puzzled why I am getting this warning repeatedly.

According to the following reference I had 0xff set in ...\Tcpip6\Parameters\DisabledComponents:


Initially I tried 0xfe, and after a reboot the warning was still there when Eddie connects to a server. I then set 0x20 (as recommended by Microsoft) and now the warning no longer appears. Please be aware that changes to the registry need to be done with great care and I advise a manual key backup as well as creating a System Restore Point. You are responsible for all eventualities.

If the Eddie log tells you that it disabled IPv6 prior to connecting then this behavior shouldn't surprise you and manual correction is not needed.

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.
